Norman (Paolo Malco) & Lucy (Catriona MacColl) Boyle together with son Bob (Giovanni Frezza) move from New York to Boston, where they stay in the house of the late professor Peterson, who a short time ago died under mysterious circumstances, & it is part of Norman's work to find out why he died, as well as to continue Peterson's researches. But something seems to be not right right from the beginning, since Bob has ghostly appearences from a girl who warns him to enter the house, the Boyle's new nanny Anne (Ania Pieroni) seems more than just a little creepy, Norman's researches into the late professor's work uncover some creepy stuff & Lucy finds a crypt in the house's livingroom - & it is all linked together by the name Freudstein. Freudstein, as it turns out, lived here decades ago, but could his spirit account for the creepy noises from the cellar ? As the Boyles enter the cellar one night though, they are attacked by a blood sucking bat, & as if that wasn't bad enough, the next day their real estate agent (Dagmar Lassander) stops by only to be killed by a person or persons unknown. & while Norman finds out more & more about Peterson's weird & creepy experiments, nanny Anne back home enters the cellar looking for Bob, only to instead get her throat cut, & even Bob himself enters the cellar despite his ghostly girlfriend's warnings & nearly gets it. But seemingly he has learned very little from this experiments because he soon sees it fit to enter the cellar again (but hey, he's a mere child) & this time he gets locked in with the killer who is slowly closing in on him, while at the other side of the door to the cellar, his parents try desperately to get the door open, which they only manage after Bob has been dragged off to the killer's - who is actually a monstrous being, and as we learn apparently the immortal Freudstein - sleeping place, which is nothing else but a spooky compendium of corpses - Freudstein needs to kill to stay alive for some reason. In the finale, both Bob's parents die in an attempt to save him, but the only person (well, not quite person) who can actually help him is Bob's ghostly girlfriend who pulls him over to the spiritual world ... The End.

 

Admittedly, the story of this movie is nothing else than a mess - but in this instance that actually works for the movie instead of against it: The further the plot proceeds, the less sense it makes, replacing common reason with the logic of a nightmare - & since this is a horror film, I can't really think of something nicer to say about it. (Director Fulci by the way used a similar tactic in many of his movies, but only rarely to the same fascinating results.)
