Random Cult/Horror Film Highlight: The Blancheville Monster

As cult and horror fans, we are always on the lookout for new material to sink our bloody fangs into. There are so many movies out there that have been made, but they eventually went off into obscurity be it because of a low box office, behind the scenes disputes, or just the plain ol’ fact the film sucks. We here at Cultsploitation love all kinds of films and no matter how terribly obscure, we think they should be highlighted. And that’s the point of this article! Let’s scour the internet and see if we can find a random flick, and see what it’s all about! Join me if you so choose! 

The Blancheville Monster

The Blancheville Monster (1963) can be found on those 50 movie packs that are sold for dirt cheap. I haven’t seen the film, and according to IMDb, it doesn’t look like many other people have seen it either. The last review is from 2008, and surprisingly enough it’s a positive review.

The Blancheville Monster is also known as Horror and is supposedly based on Edgar Allen Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher, but it only takes bits and pieces from said work. The film is directed by Alberto de Martino and written by Gianni Grimaldi and Bruno Corbucci. 

The beautiful young daughter of a crazed count fears that she will fall victim to the family curse – to be sacrificed to fulfill an ancient family legend.
