Filmed back to back with writer/director Sergio Garrone's equally Gothic Italian/Turkish thriller THE HAND THAT FEEDS THE DEAD, 1974's LOVER OF THE MONSTER is uncut and remastered for the FIRST TIME in North America!
Notorious German actor Klaus Kinski (CRAWLSPACE, NOSFERATU: PHANTOM DER NACHT) stars as Dr. Alex Nijinksy, a troubled scientist who retires to his long suffering wife Anijeska's family castle in search of a fresh start. Already under pressure, Nijinsky's rage begins to boil when his lady starts spending time with her ex-boyfriend and, after he discovers a hidden laboratory in the castle belonging to his mad scientist father-in-law, unleashes the living incarnation of his rage. Soon, Nijinksy is up to no good, sexually assaulting women and murdering them, all the while making his wife's life a living hell.
LOVER OF THE MONSTER features much of the same cast and crew Garrone employed for THE HAND THAT FEEDS THE DEAD, including the gorgeous Katia Christine (RIOT IN A WOMEN'S PRISON)and FX man Carlo Rambaldi (E.T., KING KONG) as well as having Kinski play a same-named (though totally different) mad scientist named Nijinsky. Filled with nudity, violence and general bad behaviour, this stylish, sensual and rarely seen psycho-shocker is presented here for the FIRST TIME in its fully uncut form, fully remastered from the best available materials, in its original Italian language with new English subtitles.
