Seduction, sadism and sexual obsession – The Whip and the Body is one of the greatest films of legendary director Mario Bava (Hatchet for the Honeymoon; Black Sunday). The equally legendary Christopher Lee (everything from Dracula to The Lord of the Rings) plays Kurt Menliff. He's the black sheep of his family, banished for his wicked, wicked ways. But now he's home, and keen to resume his sadomasochistic affair with his brother's wife Nevenka (Daliah Lavi). So keen, in fact, that not even his untimely death cannot put a stop to his violent lust... A delirious journey into troubled souls, this is arguably the greatest film Bava ever made – and now it's looking better than ever, gorgeously restored from newly discovered film elements. 88 Films are proud to present Bava's masterpiece, finally resplendent in all its gothic splendour.
