Description by OLDIES.com:
This tale of torture and vengeance is based on the infamous writings of the Marquis de Sade. A group of photographers and models arrive at an Italian castle owned by a deranged ex-actor who is the reincarnation of the notorious medieval torturer, the Crimson Executioner. When he discovers that his ex-girlfriend is among the group, the enraged madman subjects them to his dungeon of torture. With scantily clad victims pleading for mercy as they face unendurable tortures, Bloody Pit of Horror is a titillating over-the-top European horror epic. Filmed in "Psychovision," it stars Mr. Universe Mickey Hargitay as the Crimson Executioner whose "...vengeance requires blood!" The names in the credits of this Euro-trash classic have been anglicized to protect the guilty.
A group of models stumble into an apparently abandoned castle, looking for a suitably gothic setting for a photo shoot. They discover the old dungeon and they and their photographers begin setting up a series of macabre shots. Their presence alerts an unhinged actor who lives out his madness in the castle as self-proclaimed reincarnation of the Crimson Executioner. When he realizes one of the models is his former fiancee, he begins to execute a series of horrific tortures.
