Carla (Fata Morgana) is visiting the mansion of Onoria Balasz, a legendary actress from the 1930's and 40's, with the intention to buy some of her presumably lost material from her heirs. At first though, the place seems totally deserted, though only minutes later, the place seems to be inhabited by quite an array of eccentric people, including the monk Nostradamus (Antonio Mayans), Alpha (Christie Levin), the mad girl he looks after, Andros, Onoria's son ... and then there's a young woman who parades around primarily in the nude, who has a snake tattooed onto her body (hence the title Sankewoman), and who claims to be the late Onoria. The thing about her is, she can appear and disappear at till, not everybody can see her (like Nostradamus can't), she has forced mad Alpha into submission ... ah yeah, and she is a vampire.

Soon enough, Carla has caught the eye of Onoria, and Onoria begins to seduce her - but in exchange Carla persuades her to send the lost material she is after to her newspaper ...

Days later, Carla awakens in Dr Van Helsing's (Lina Romay) asylum. It seems she ahs been found without any cloths and in a state of utter disorientation.

Slowly, Doc Van Helsing nurses her back to health,a nd it seems Carla is getting better (and more reasonable) by the day ... however, what the good doctor does not know is that Onoria visits her every night for a bit of sex.

Finally, Doc Van Helsing declares her as healed, when Tony (Ezequiel Cohen), the publisher of Carla's newspaper calls to tell her that a box full of lost films with Onoria has arrived at the newspaper's doorstep, and he invites Carla as well as the doctor to come over and watch the stuff.

However, the film turns out to be a rather run-of-the-mill (if scandalous for its time) piece of erotica, so both Tony and the doctor soon lose interest. Only Carla, who recognizes the woman in the film to be her Onoria, is mesmerized by the stuff, until she sees Onoria bite off a penis duiring a blowjob - which Carla interprets as proof of Onoria's lesbian love.

So, with her assignment finished and released from the asylum, Carla returns to Onoria's mansion, to be with her lover forever.

 

Strongly quoting both Bram Stoker's Dracula and his own masterpiece Vampyros Lesbos, director Jess Franco turned this blend of horror and softcore erotica into a surreal lesbian love story, and the outcome is a movie that just does not resemble your typical direct-to-video fare, no matter of what genre, but is rather a very personal film. That said however, Snakewoman is far from being among Jess Franco's best films, the budget was just too low to do anything decent on a technical level, the sex scenes are incredibly padded out, and somehow Jess Franco hasn't yet really gotten hold of video-filmmaking to make his films look like more than accomplished home videos. On the plus side though, the film is not an insult to every thinking being like so many other direct-to-video flicks, and the girls in the film are all very pretty and very naked.
