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.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Seeking a gothic background for a horror photo shoot, five sexy cover girls and a handful of photographers break into what they assume is an uninhabited castle and are soon taking a series of macabre stills in its dungeon. But--surprise!--residing in the castle is demented actor Travis Anderson (Mickey Hargitay) who thinks he's the reincarnation of The Crimson Executioner, a 17th century madman whose body is entombed in the castle's iron maiden. When Travis recognizes one of the models as his former fiancee, his already unhinged mind completely snaps. He gleefully subjects the trespassers to a variety of bizarre and elaborately-conceived tortures: "The Crimson Executioner cries out for blood!"
