Technicolor S & M-Bava Style THE WHIP AND THE BODY


LA FRUSTA E IL CORPO

Christopher Lee is Kurt, the black sheep of the Menliff family ,who returns to his family’s castle by the sea where he resumes his sadistic ways with his brother’s wife, the willing Nevenka. Before you can say “Guido Crepax” things go wrong( technically, more wrong as the family was a bit nutty to begin with) as Kurt gets stabbed in the throat and Nevenka may or may not be seeing and getting flogged by his ghost.  It’s a kinky and beautiful love story from Mario Bava full of great stuff like sinister housekeepers, jealous cousins, bloody daggers displayed quite nicely,hidden passageways, crypts, a ghost,nice scenic flogging beach, and a thunderstorm.

  1. This is a true kink masterpiece as well as a true Gothic masterpiece–a Bava-flavored perfect storm! I’m going to have to re-watch this one in the very near future. GREAT screen grabs!
