Klaus Kinski Italian Horror Flick ‘Lover of the Monster’ Due on Disc From MVD

The Italian horror flick Lover of the Monster will debut on Blu-ray and DVD June 8 from MVD Entertainment Group and Full Moon Features.

Legendary German actor Klaus Kinski (Crawlspace, Nosferatu: Phantom Der Nacht) stars as Dr. Alex Nijinksy, a troubled scientist who retires to his long-suffering wife Anijeska’s family castle in search of a fresh start. Already under pressure, Nijinsky’s rage begins to boil when his lady starts spending time with her ex-boyfriend and, after he discovers a hidden laboratory in the castle belonging to his mad scientist father-in-law, he unleashes the living incarnation of his rage. Soon, Nijinksy is up to no good, sexually assaulting women and murdering them, all the while making his wife’s life a living hell. Filmed back-to-back with writer/director Sergio Garrone’s equally Gothic Italian/Turkish thriller The Hand That Feeds the Dead, Lover of the Monster features much of the same cast and crew, including Katia Christine (Riot in a Women’s Prison) as well as having Kinski play a same-named (though totally different) mad scientist named Nijinsky.
