A Scorpion Release - Legendary international star Liv Ullmann (Cries and Whispers, Persona) stars as Leonor, in this chilling and poetic 1970s arthouse horror film about a medieval noblewoman whose untimely death haunts her husband Richard (Michel Piccoli, Belle de Jour, Contempt). After years of mourning and with Leonor’s body walled up in a tomb, Richard marries the much younger Catherine (Ornella Muti, Flash Gordon, Oscar, Oasis of Fear), but he still can’t find true happiness. Desperate the relive his life with Leonor, he makes a pact with the devil that indeed brings back his late wife, but she’s cold to the touch and now possesses an unearthly hunger that could destroy everyone around him.
