Barbara Steele was some tasty eye candy here, but I really don't know why I still check out "horror" films of old; they're more comical than they are scary. And the overdubbed "AAAAHHH!!!"s only added insult to injury. I think I've witnessed my last lame, prehistoric 'Chill-o-rama'. R.I.P. "Bride of Godzilla", "Son of Godzilla", "Curse of Godzilla", "Revenge of Godzilla", "I.R.S. Audit of Godzilla", "Colonoscopy of Godzilla"... (hmm... those last two *do* sound pretty scary, though...)

solid old school horror, not really comedic or quirky in any production sense just a good shoot from yesteryear.

Princess Asa Vajda (to a bewitched Katia Vadja): "You did not know that you were born for this moment... You didn't know that your life had been consecrated to me by Satan... But you sensed it, didn't you...? You sensed it, didn't you?!? That's why my portrait was a constant temptation to you! Why it frightened you! You felt that your life and your body were mine! You felt like me because you were destined to *become* me! A useless body without life... The love that young man had for you could have saved you, do you know that? You might have been happy together but *I* WAS STRONGER and now you shall enjoy a beautiful life of eeevil and hate -- IN ME..."
