Starring Andrés Resino, Analía Gadé, Evelyn Stewart (=Ida Galli), Annalisa Nardi, Alberto Dalbés, Georges Rigaud. Interesting mix of gothic and giallo elements in quite atmospheric shocker. Several characters get lost in thick fog and stumble into mysterious mansion in the middle of nowhere. Soon they are confronted with Stewart's sinister family history. Some scares, diverting for fans. Complete version runs 86m. Polop's first movie as a director. His last was SEDUCTION OF A PRIEST in 1990. English titles: MURDER MANSION, MANIAC MANSION.
