Movie Quote(s):
  • John Harrington: My name is John Harrington. I'm 30 years old. I'm a paranoiac. Paranoiac. An enchanting word, so civilized, full of possibilities. The truth is, I am completely mad. The realization which annoys me at first, but is now amusing to me. Quite amusing. Nobody suspects I am a madman. A dangerous murderer. Not Mildred, my wife. Nor the employees of my fashion center. Nor of course my customers. [scoops a fly out of his drink] John Harrington: Poor little fly. Why are you so daring? You're so fragile? Yet you're born, you reproduce yourself, and you die like man. The difference is you don't think. And, you don't need to remember. You don't fear death because you ignore it. You're insignificant life is a mere accident. But death exists I assure you, and that's what makes life a ridiculous and brutal drama. But the fact remains that I have killed five young women. Three of whom are buried in the hothouse. Carol, Mary and Margaret. They were the friendliest, the most attractive ones. There is one problem. I must go on wielding the cleaver. It's most annoying. But when I begin to hear the footsteps. Those stealthy footsteps, I know I just kill. And shall have to keep on killing, until I find out the truth. That's it, the whole truth.
Movie Trivia:
  • The TV show that Harrington refers to in an attempt to fool Inspector Russell is a clip from Mario Bava's own _Black Sabbath (1963)_ - specifically the "Wurdalak" sequence featuring Boris Karloff.
  • Director Mario Bava created the elaborate animated collage for the films opening credits.
  • In certain foreign releases of the film Stephen Forsyth's character is re-named "Oliver Barrington." This may be due to distributors feeling that the name "John Harrington" was too generic for the character.
  • Originally the script didn't include the character of Mildred Harrington. It was only after Laura Betti expressed interest in working with Bava that the director re-wrote the script so that Betti could have a suitable starring role.
  • The Harrington's bed was originally used as a set piece in an earlier Bava film, 1963's Black Sabbath.
