The Skull (1965) Dr. Maitland knows Anthony Marco is as disreputable as they come. Certainly his wife dislikes the man coming to the house at late hours. But Dr. Maitland finds that Marco is indispensable when it comes to finding the kind of morbid curios he requires for his research. One night, Marco arrives with something quite special: a book bound in human skin. It was the creation of the notorious sadist, the Marquis de Sade. But Marco means the book only to whet the curious doctor's appetite. The next night he brings de Sade's own skull. The trouble is, the skull is reputed to be possessed by a spirit, which in turn possesses the minds of those who own it. The skull's former owner, Sir Matthew Phillips, is certainly glad to be rid of it. Dr. Maitland tries to dismiss the stories about the skull, but then come the nightmares. And then his nightmares become real.

More Movie Taglines:
  • When the Skull strikes you'll Scream!
Movie Quote(s):
  • [last lines] Doctor: What connection could there be? Witchcraft? Inspector Wilson: Hardly. Not in this day and age. Not in this day and age.
  • [first lines] Pierre: What are you doing here? French Girl: Aren't you pleased to see me?
Movie Trivia:
  • The heirs of Donatien Alphonse François de Sade pressed charges to prevent any use of his name on the advertising material. The changes on posters and lobby-cards were made at the very last minute by sticking the new title "Le Crâne Maléfique" (meaning "The Evil Skull") on top of the former, "Les forfaits du Marquis de Sade" (meaning "the Infamies of Marquis de Sade"). Only on that condition the film could finally be released in the French territory.
