Gothic 70's horror that's a little too methodical and calibrated to be taken seriously. A bit of atmosphere, a bit of titillation and a bit of schlock.

This sort of reminded me of Rollin's vampire movies because of the atmospheric shots in between scenes, but I didn't like that we don't get to see any fangs, and it tries to be erotic, but it isn't explicit enough. Another part I liked was the ending, though, it was really cool. Overall this could be a great movie if they dared to go a bit further.

Slow atmospheric tale of a seductive couple of vamp chicks. It was OK I suppose. I enjoyed the creepy setting of the film and the bare flesh which is exposed quite often. It's not particularly gory though and it was a little dull at times. Caused quite a stir on its release back in the day, but it's lost its shock value.
