Castle of the Walking Dead (1967) – German Gothic Horror

Here’s one for fans of Hammer, AIP Gothics or Mario Bava and his ilk. Castle of the Walking Dead is a German made gothic horror film, from the director and cast of the Karl May Westerns. It stars Christopher Lee as the evil Count Regula with Lex Barker (La Dolce Vita (1960)), and the attractive Karen Dor (You Only Live Twice (1967)) as the heroic leads and is very impressively directed by Harald Reinl (Treasure of Silver Lake (1962)) with some of the best gothic sets and locations ever committed to film.
