Aristocrat Julian Markham keeps his disfigured brother, Sir Edward, locked in a tower of his house. Sir Edward occasionally escapes and causes havoc around the town.
Lawrence Huntington, who had written the original draft of the screenplay, died just eleven days into the production of the movie.
Sir Edward. I thought you've been-
Sir Edward Markham: Buried. Yes. Waking up in that horrible oblong box, no air to breathe, trapped and no escape. Earth raining down on the lid, every shovel full burying you more deeply.
When Sir Edward murders Heidi the prostitute, the special effects knife clearly sprays blood onto the actresses' neck well before it actually touches her.
The Thorn-EMI Video version and some TV prints slightly trim the murder scene of the prostitute, in which Edward gropes at her chest and slits her throat. Originally, her breast is briefly visible and the cutting of her throat are both longer.
