Before Black Sabbath, before I Vampiri, director Giorgio Ferroni (The Lion of Thebes, Blood for a Silver Dollar) introduced audiences to period horror Italian-style with his chilling 1960 shocker Mill of the Stone Women - a classic tale of terror redolent with the atmosphere of vintage Hammer Horror. Young art student Hans von Arnam (Pierre Brice, Night of the Damned) arrives by barge at an old mill to write a monograph about its celebrated sculptures of women in the throes of death and torture, maintained and curated by the mill's owner, the hermetic Professor Wahl (Herbert Böhme, Secret of the Red Orchid). But when Hans encounters the professor's beautiful and mysterious daughter Elfi (Scilla Gabel, Modesty Blaise), his own fate becomes inexorably bound up with hers, and with the shocking secret that lies at the heart of the so-called Mill of the Stone Women. The first Italian horror film to be shot in color, Mill of the Stone Women prefigured a raft of other spaghetti nightmares, including the work of maestros Mario Bava and Dario Argento. Arrow Video is proud to present this brand-new restoration of one of the foundational titles of Italian horror.

Press Quotes

An often unheralded cornerstone in the gothic horror revolution of the early '60s... a visually startling treat

A glorious, understated work of art

A pretty substantial upgrade across the board from other home entertainment versions of this film. Technical merits are solid, and as usual Arrow has provided a really nice supply of bonus features, along with impressive packaging. Recommended.

     —Mill Of The Stone Women [Limited Edition} [Blu-ray, Blu-ray.com

It’s a period picture with fairy tale overtones, atrocious medical crimes and a sensual romance that leans heavily on squeamish Victorian taboos . . . yes, it’s irresistible. So is the lavish presentation, one of this disc label’s very best.

     —Mill Of The Stone Women [Limited Edition} [Blu-ray, Trailers From Hell

This two-disc set offers four cuts of the movie in three different languages. Don't miss

     —Jason Lockard, Classic Cinema Magazine

I was thrilled to hear that Arrow was putting this out. This looks beautiful, this looks phenomenal - it's gorgeous. I was drooling watching this transfer

     —Mark Nelson, The Cinemaniacs!

A remarkably effective thriller with a familiar premise, but executed quite well. An excellent and undervalued Italian Gothic, Mill of the Stone Women deserves far more praise than it currently receives. Another excellent release from Arrow Video… an essential purchase for fans of the genre

     —Tim Salmons, The Digital Bits

Pretty cool, actually

     —Bob Bobson, Bob's Movie Review

Every movie deserves this kind of treatment!

     —Horror Movie A Day

Arrow Video has likely delivered the definitive home video edition of the movie with a great HD transfer of not one, but four versions of the movie as well as a decent slate of special features looking into the creation and legacy of the movie. Highly recommended

     —Home Theater Forum

[Arrow's] Blu-ray presentation features a fantastic new 2K transfer scanned from the original 35mm negative, four cuts of the film, a brand new featurette by film historian Kat Ellinger, and an audio commentary by Tim Lucas.

     —Art House Cult

The packaging from Arrow is spectacular. This is one of their large format releases with slipcover, poster, book, and reversible art. There are a ton of special features to sink your teeth into as well. Worth it for fans.

     —Film Cultist

Another excellent release from Arrow Video, the Limited Edition double disc Blu-ray of Mill of the Stone Women is an essential purchase for fans of the genre. Highly recommended!

     —The Digital Bits

A solid entry which transcends the mundane to achieve something a bit special.

     —Geek Vibes Nation

Mill of the Stone Women is a masterpiece of tone and atmosphere with enough ornate sets, eye-poppin’ color, and Gothic goings-on to have horror hounds droolin’ for days!

     —Horror Fuel

Arrow once again shows why they are one of the premiere companies when it comes to restorations and rediscovering lost classics. One can only sit and wait to see what comes next. This one is worth adding to your shelf before the limited editions are gone.

     —Mark Turner, DVD Digital Views

Mill Of The Stone Women has never received the same acclaim as some of its contemporaries, but it is just as worthy. The atmosphere is extremely creepy and the story is well paced as it builds up to a thrilling finale. This is a great purchase.

     —Dillon Gonzales, Geek Vibes Nation

You need to check out this stunning release.

     —Anthony Arrigo, Dread Central

A gorgeous set
