International screen icon Delphine Seyrig (of LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD fame) stars as Elizabeth Bathory, an ageless Countess with a beautiful young 'companion' (Goth goddess Andrea Rau) and a legendary legacy of perversion. But when the two women seducea a troubled newlywed couple (Canadian beauty Danielle Ouimet and John Karlen of DARK SHADOWS and CAGNEY & LACEY), they unleash a frenzy of sudden violence and depraved desire that shocked both art house audiences and grindhouse crowds worldwide.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Delphine Seyrig's silver lame presence and Harry Kumel's evocative direction make this an above-par vampire tale."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"a purposefully difficult-to-classify hybrid of European art-film austerity and borderline campy erotic-horror excess"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"An exotic, erotic re-working of the legend of vampire Elisabeth Bathor."
‑ , Film4
"Creepily, delicately sophisticated, with a witty, evocative score by Francois de Roubaix and an interesting, unusual set of monstrous mannerisms."
‑ Kim Newman, Electric Sheep
"Makes decadence drolly enchanted"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Mystifyingly overrated horror flick that moves like fire hydrant in winter"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Not a single death is drawn out for effect -- indeed, most aren't even on purpose."
‑ Michael Nordine, Film Threat
"Lesbian-themed vintage vampire flick."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
