Trivia
The shooting locations didn't have woods, so Mario Bava created them by setting up tree branches to pass through the camera shots. According to Laura Betti, the trickery would look so silly during shooting that the cast and crew would often laugh hysterically.

One promotional gimmick was that every ticket holder was required to pass through The Final Warning Station, where a theater worker warned you face to face that this may be the last 'shock' film you will ever want to see.

Goofs
The Count is stabbed repeatedly in his back and then he falls on his back and dies. When the killer is dragging him away, there should be a blood trail leading from The Countess to the door.

Q
What are the differences between the old BBFC 18 Version and the Uncensored Version?
A
In the UK, this Mario Bava slasher from 1971 was released cut on VHS (by Redemption) and DVD (by FILM 2000). The Uncut Version was relased on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray as well. The uncut VHS by Fokushin is very rare though. It's also a collectable because it's one of the infamous "video nasties". A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
