A bunch of robbers have just gotten into a discussion abut splitting their loot, when Marc (Jean Marie Lemaire) decides to cheat his accomplices out of their share & get away with all of it. However, the others have slightly different ideas about this & try to chase him down ... so he hides in a castle he can easily defend & he thinks is abandoned ... only it isn't, 2 mysterious women, Eva (Brigitte Lahaie) & Elisabeth (Franca Mai) are living there, & even though he does everything to scare the living shit out of them, they don't seem one bit concerned & start to tease him, then Eva seduces him, while Elisabeth, it seems, falls in love witbh him.

Meanwhile though, Marc's accomplices try to attack the castle, so Eva , trying to protect the castle, brings the robbers the loot, & doesn't even flinch blink her eyes, when one of them announces he will rape her (which he does) & then kill her (which he doesn't). Ibnstead she kills all of them with a handy dandy scythe she has found, looking just like Lady Death.

Eva & especially Elisabeth urge Marc to get away now, as they are expecting guests, & as a result of that he might be uin danger, but Marc has become increasingly fascintated by the girls & ther way of life, so he tells them he'll stay despite everything.

Soon a bunch of women arrive at the castle for some weird ritual, Marc meets Hélène, the leader of their so-called cult, a very bossy women, but he wins her as a slave for a quarter of an hour ... but knows little to do with her. With the 15 minutes over, the women suddenly gang up on him, & try to kill him ... when Elisabeth gets in their way & shoots Eva, gher closest friend, just to save Marc. Elisabeth & Marc get away, while the other women gatehr around Eva's corpse & drink her blood.

Later, Elisabeth tells Marc about their cult, that they are a bunch of society ladies who think that by drinking human blood, preferably male blood, to stay young. A sort of stupid superstition surely, thinks Marc, but he still is grateful that Elisabeth has saved him, that she loves him ... but actually, Elisabeth only wants all of Marc's blood for herself ...

 

Like so many of director Jean Roollin's films (his good films), this is a poetic, erotic, erratic tale of pulp fiction taken out of the context of time or genre, creating a surreal world all of its own ... & in a weird way, this world is highly fascinating (excuse the pun).
