The She-Beast (1966)

aka La Sorella di Satana, aka Revenge of the Blood Beast

How bad is it? It has a poor script and low budget.
Should you see it? Yes - it has its interesting moments among the dullness.

21 year-old director Michael Reeves directed a few films that developed a cult following after his death at age 24. In this, queen of the 1960's horror film Barbara Steele is a tourist in Transylvania who becomes possessed by a witch. Unfortunately, she's not on screen very much. Mel Welles investigates. There's some interesting images poking fun at communism done by juxtaposition, which is surprisingly arty for trashy horror films.
