"Sor-Dead Affair"

Films: Nightmare Castle (1965)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted Home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Once again, Barbara Steele is in the spotlight again. And she's in this film twice. We suppose that much like the audience, singular movies cannot get enough of her.

History: Muriel Arrowsmith was the ruler of the castle she shared with her husband Stephan. But when she started having an affair with the gardener, David, Stephen impaled the boy with a poker and burned half of Muriel's face off. After they died, Stephen kept their hearts for future notice. Of course, the castle was meant for Muriel's sister in case something happened, so Stephen needed to figure out how to get things his way.

Notable Kills: See Final Fate.

Final Fate: Eventually, Muriel and David return to Stephen as ghosts to exact vengeance. David reduces a servant of his to a skeleton while Muriel burns her ex alive with a broken lamp after tying him up to a chair. The remaining folks proceed to burn the dead couple's hearts to prevent them from coming again.

Powers/Abilities: Omnipotence, it seems.

Weakness: Burn their hearts and they shall vanish.

Scariness Factor: 4-Aside from the fact that they can kill you in any way they want (if they actually want to), these two still bear the mark of their mutilations. Seriously, David's missing an eye, and Muriel's got half her face missing! It's hideous!

Trivia: -Director Mario Caiano openly admitted that he made this film because he was enamored with Barbara Steele.

-The original title for this film was "Orgasmo". Not even joking.

Looking good, Muriel!

Behold. The true monster.
I'd hardly call the cretin a scientist after this.

After death, she thankfully lost the bun.

Still a wonderful sight.
Even more lies from the advertising agencies.
