Help - black and white horror (thriller) movie/TV epsiode - man impaled by fence after escaping house...

Greetings all - looking for the title of the following (not sure if was a TV or movie).

  • Black and white
  • A man is held captive/imprisoned in what appears to be a English Manor House (or somewhere in Europe)
  • The twist at the end is that when he finally escapes the house, he runs down the drive and as he is walking near the gate to the estate, a wind comes up and blows the gate shut and it impales him -
  • At first I thought this was a Twilight Zone, but it's too gory. I reviewed all the episodes and no dice. It's not Outer Limits or any other US production. It's also not the Boris Karloff Thriller show from the 60's. I also looked at descriptions of Alfred Hitchcock presents but nothing really matches up.
  • Not sure if that was produced in UK or even Italy (years ago Joe Bob Briggs thought it sounded like a late 1950's early 1960's Italian horror movie

Thanks for any ideas...

I think it is Castle of Blood with the lovely Barbara Steele.  It has been awhile since I saw it, but I am pretty sure that is how it ends.  I know the remake, Web of Spider, ends that way.  

The link below is to the trailer for Castle of Blood.

Thanks for the suggestion - watched the film on Tubi last night and I would give a strong MAYBE...it definitely fits the bill of what I described but what is odd is that my recollection seemed to be contemporary (late 50's early 1960's as the man was dressed in modern suit) and had a more ironic vibe like a Twilight Zone style twist. However, as with all things related to memory, I could also be conflating two different movies.

Need to watch it again and see if it jogs the memory.
