He returns home to his aunt and his three female cousins, who had him committed years earlier so that they could get their hands on his inheritance. Biding his time and playing it cool, he plans to exacts chilling revenge. The film's Wellesian climax takes place atop a treacherous bell tower. On the final day of shooting, director Claudio Hill was killed in a fall from that tower, obliging an uncredited Juan Antonio Bardem to finish the picture.
