In the early years of the last century, just outside Amsterdam, Holland, a young artist is hired to do a study of a famous local landmark, a windmill that contains stone statues of notorious female monsters of the past: murderers, poisoners, and witches. One day he meets a mysterious but dangerously beautiful real life woman in the mill. Before long he is drawn into her clutches. But who is this girl? The DVD version of this horror classic restores all the scenes cut from its original US release including the notorious "topless" shots of sexy French star Dany Carrel.
A young artists is commissioned to do a study of a windmill which is surrounded by a frightening collection of statues of notorious women. Little does he know that a the mill is inhabited by a madman who needs the blood of women to keep his daughter alive. This overlooked piece of Italian gothic horror (which was filmed in Holland) creates a mood comparable to early 1960's Hammer Films or the works of Mario Bava.
