The Virgin of Nuremberg Poster

A fantastic piece of lurid poster art for this Italian gothic horror from 1963. "The Virgin of Nuremberg" (aka "Castle of Terror") was picked up by exploitation experts Compton Films. IMDb's description encapsulates the film: "Women are being tortured to death with various torture devices in the dungeon of an old castle by a deformed, hooded, holocaust survivor". Although cut for the UK release, the presence of Christopher Lee, was onviously a lure for British audiences.


This is an unusual poster, the artwork looking somewhat hurried yet it is surprisingly effective, creating a dramatic montage of horror & suspense. The poster received a UK distribution via Rank with elements borrowed from the Italian poster design but the Quad poster artist remains unidentified. Surprisingly, the poster does not carry a ratings certificate though even with cuts it came out as an "X" rated film. The poster has been silk-screened which suggests a low print run & indeed this is a scarce title, very hard to find.

The poster remains in superb folded condition.
