In an orphanage, Doctor Dennary (Bernard Charnacé) finds 2 girls who have mysteriously gone blind at the same time & who, according to the nuns of the orphanage are two angels on earth. Soon he, being an ophthalmologist himself & interested in their case, decides to adopt them. What he doesn't know though is that the 2 girls, Henriette (Isabelle Teboul) & Louise (Nathalie Pic) are 2 vampires who can only see at night & who have been eternally reborn, their origins being (maybe) the Aztec gods Quetzalcoatl (the feathered serpent) & Murcielago (the bat woman). - & each night they visit the local graveyard right next to the orphanage to suck dry whatever creature might cross their path.

Now moving to Paris into Dennary's mansion they have a whole new hunting ground, & they soon find their first victim (Brigitte Lahaie) kin a circus tent ...

A few days later, Dennary has to stay out overnight, so the girls decide to take the Metro to the local cemetary - the big one - to get some food there ... but there they are found out by a man who sees through their innocent disguise & chased through the place ... until they happen upon a shelter where they meet a fellow vampire - a batlike woman - who takes them under her wing (bopth figuratively & literally) & leads them to a hide-out in the catacombs under the graveyard, where they can escape their pursuers.

On the next morning, the girls - now completely blind again - leave the place again, but get sop famished on their way home that they drink blood from each other, & buy alcohol (a bottle of Calvados) to disinfect their wounds. The rest of the Calvados, they drink, & arrive home pretty souped up, just minutes before Dennary arrives ... & he, only seeing someone rushing to the bushes, shoots at them, wounding Louise. Only some more of Henriette's blood & her vivid recounting of their (real or imagined) Aztec past can heal Louise.

Soon, the 2 plan Dennary's demise, but instead are found out by Dennary to actually have eyesight. However they explain it away as a miracle & soon the 3 of them celebrate ... until Henriette plunges a knife into Dennary's back ...

To cover up their tracks, the girls decide to set Dennary's house on fire & return to the orphanage, continuing their roles as innocent angels ... but having grown a little thirsty, in the orphanage they soon befriend 2 fellow inmates ... & suck them dry, whereupon they are found by the nuns, the corpses still on their laps ...

Having to make another getaway, they befriend farmgirl Nicole (Anissa Berkani-Rohmer), & decide to not kill her because she shows sympathy ... but it's too late anyhow, they are soon hunted down by a vampire hunter & when one of them gets a bullet in the back, they both go into the water to avoid a worse fate ...

Nicole is left behind with what the girls call their heritage - a picture book of old carnival posters which represents the girls' romantic fantasies of themselves.

 

This is maybe one of Jean Rollin's most easily accessible films as it features a rather straight forward narrative, & surrealistic elements are largely absent from the plot. The film still though is typical Rollin, a blend of vampirism, lyricism, (mild) eroticism & of coujrse a busload of (vintage) pulp elements - & as such of course the film is highly enjoyable.
