THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH is a 1964 Italian horror film, set in the 15th century, in which the daughter of a woman executed on charges of witchcraft rises from her own grave to seek revenge.

Threat

In two scenes that mirror each other, a woman tries desperately to escape from the flames of a gigantic bonfire into which she has been consigned for execution on charges of witchcraft, and later the man responsible for her death is trapped inside an effigy that is also intended for burning. In another scene, a reluctant bride is held down on a bed by her husband on their wedding night and has kisses forced on her.

Violence

In scenes of moderate violence, a woman is thrown over a waterfall and a man is stabbed with a spear.

Disturbing images

There are images of the partly-decomposed face of a corpse in which the eyeballs and skull are revealed, but these have been achieved by dated special effects.

Nudity

During a passionate encounter between a couple, the man tears down the top of the woman's nightgown to show fleeting breast nudity.
