Set during the 15th century at the time of the Spanish Inquisition and shot in a European castle, this version of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale carries an air of authenticity. The plot involves the evil deeds of the unbalanced Grand Inquisitor Forquemada (Lance Henriksen) who uses the name of God and the Church to support the use of his torture chamber.
