Synopsis

In a 15th-century feudal village, a woman is accused of witchcraft and put to death. Her beautiful older daughter knows the real reason for the execution lies in the lord's sexual desire for her mother. After confronting the lord on the matter, she, too, is killed. A much younger daughter is spared and taken in by her mother's killers. Once she is of age, as a horrible, deadly plague sweeps the land, she marries the lord's worthless son. Then, during a brutal thunderstorm, the older daughter mysteriously reappears and begins to avenge her mother's death.Director and writer

Reviews

Margheriti will take you on a painstaking walk through the dreariest of castles and make you feel the suspense of every hesitant step.
— IDMB
Admirers of moody European-made Gothic horror movies from the 60’s rejoice! “The Long Hair of Death” has it all: sinister castles with numerous secret passageways and hidden vaults, malignant landlords and obedient servants, poor villages cursed with the black plague, the heavenly beautiful Barbara Steele, witches burning at the stake (whether innocent or not is irrelevant) and vowing revenge from beyond the tomb, uncanny thunderstorms and much more
