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.
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
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.
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).
