Master of Horror (1965)

This is a dubbed version of the 1960 Argentinan horror film Obras Maestras del Terror. It’s missing “The Tell-Tale Heart*” and fifteen minutes of footage that was cut from “Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar” and “The Cask of Amontillado.”

You can blame Jack H. Harris.

I have to say that this is my favorite version of Amontillado that I’ve seen, as the young wife is seeking the flowery passion from the young rogue who is staying at the farm of the older husband, a man who seeks to love and provide for his wife yet doesn’t have the romantic mind of his younger rival.

I’d love to see a full release of this along with the original Spanish language uncut film. Until that is commercially available, you can check out the American version as part of Severin’s Tales of the Uncanny blu ray. However, as far as I know, it was only part of the Black Friday version.

*This story was part of 1972’s Legend of Horror.
