The Black Castle is a mystery film, released by Universal Pictures in 1952. It was produced by William Alland, who would have better success two years later with Creature from the Black Lagoon. The film was made in the United States but premiered in Sweden.


Richard Greene stars as an English gentleman investigating the disappearance of two friends at the Austrian estate of the sinister Count von Bruno (McNally). Von Bruno secretly seeks revenge against the leaders of a British force that set the natives against him in colonial Africa: Burton's missing friends are among his victims, and Burton is now also in the trap. Burton plans to escape with von Bruno's abused Countess, but the Count's henchmen bar the way.
