The film would most likely be unknown but for two scenes of infamy. The first is of a girl to whom the ghost of the priest appears before, causing her to ''vomit up her intestines'' whilst weeping blood. This effect reportedly required the actress to swallow several yards of sheep intestines whole... heavens above; the things one does for show business. (However, conflicting reports hold that the head consisted of a bust). The second is of a man drilling through another man's head with an electric drill, until the end protrudes from the other side, after he catches him sleeping with her daughter.

** Apparently we got this ending because the negative for the original ending was destroyed by a cup of coffee and mounting a reshoot would have cost too much and put the behind schedule movie even further behind.

Creator/LucioFulci.



The film is the first in Lucio Fulci's unofficial "Gates of Hell" trilogy (with the others being ''Film/TheBeyond'' and ''Film/TheHouseByTheCemetery'') and the second of four of his to feature zombies (with ''Film/{{Zombi2}}'' being the first and the aforementioned remaining two Gate of Hell films being the third and fourth). Also notable is the fact that it managed to escape inclusion on Britain's VideoNasties list; despite the three other films being stuck on it and despite the two above-mentioned scenes that practically begged to be cut, it's always been available in the UK.

* HalloweenEpisode: In a sense, as far as LucioFulci's films are concerned; given the date mentioned for a potential ZombieApocalypse being All Saints Day, the climax takes place on Halloween.
