    Anyone knows this? It's an oldie directed by Riccardo Freda (I Vampiri), very perverse and unbelievably haunting.
    Just checked this.

Originally released as: L’orribile segreto del dottor Hichcock. Lovely Barbara Steele is the wife of a demented physician who is haunted by the specter of his first wife who died of a drug overdose.

Theatrical Trailer, Bonus trailers. Menu/Scene Selection. Not Rated. Originally released in 1962. Running Time Approx. 88 Minutes. NTSC. Non-Region Coded.

    Any clues on that? I mean, I love the film, but is it complete shite or is it watchable?

    I don't know about this company. They seem like Diamond or a Brentwood type of organization, mainly selling bootlegs or PD titles. If we could get some screenshots of the disc then it'd be a different story.

    It looks like there will be a DVD release in the (near) future?
    At least there's a very good print available.

    We need a Riccardo Freda boxset next!
    Now that'd be something!

    The Medusa DVD is out now!No English audio or subs but I took the opportunity and made an avatar from the trailer (it's from youtube,so no great quality):

    Feel free to use it.I can up it without the "Aiuto" bit as well.

    With this film on DVD there's a tiny chance this will get an English friendly release soon,right?

    Ok, I thought I sent you a few in that package. My memory is not what it use to be. I think I will give this one a spin tonight after the AIP Black Sabbath viewing on netflix.

    I'm with you Crystal Plumage, I'm dying to see this film. I really hope it's realeased in a nice English friendly version someday. My mission is to collect all of Miss Steele's Italian gothics, and just all the great 1960's Italian gothics in general. I just ordered the Raro DVD of Long Hair Of Death (a film I haven't seen yet), so I'm looking forward to that one.

    Long hair is a great film that deserves a royal treatment.
