The story concerns a cruel, domineering man (Christopher Lee) who returns to his castle home and resumes his sado-masochistic relationship with his sister-in-law (Daliah Lavi) whom he vigorously flogs. Soon he is murdered, but his ghost returns and the beatings continue.
All of Christopher Lee's dialog was dubbed by another actor.
Alternate titles include The Way of the Body and Son of Satan. A shorter version entitled What! was released in the United States.
