Psychoanalyst Thomas (Bernard Letrou) convinces his best friends Marc and Marc's wife Brigitte (Solange Pradel) to accompany him to what's believed to be a vampire castle, inhabited by four creepy but beautiful sisters who claim to be vampires. Thomas of course thinks it's only a psychosomatic condition and he can heal the girls, and to do so he even removes all the crosses which are supposed to guard the surroundings from the girls attacking locals ... but he is only seen as a  vampire collaborator by the locals, who ultimately build a mob to rid themselves of the vampires for good. Brigitte is found murdered, and as Marc suspects the vampire girls behind this, he leads said mob. One by one the vampires fall, while Thomas finds out their condition isn't psychosomatic at all but an actual disease, and he lets the last vampire girl, whom he has long fallen in love with, turn him before they escape. They don't get far though and are killed by the locals.

The queen of the vampires (Jacqueline Sieger) arrives, has the traitor who has orchestrated the whole affair executed, then orders her minions to see to it that Thomas and his vampire companion never ome back to life again - but several of her companions have gone rogue and they do just that, in hopes that Thomas and a certain mysterious doctor will finally find a cure for vampirism.

Marc meanwhile has become a full-fledged vampire hunter, but the vampires see to it that Brigitte is revived (as a vampire) to keep him distracted. Still, Marc finds a way to poison all the vampires ... but breaks down in tears when he realizes that meant killing Brigitte as well, and for good this time ...


On a narrative level, Le Viol du Vampire certainly enough doesn't have very much to offer, and acting-wise the film leaves quite a bit to be desired, too, while the budget most certainly could have been higher - and yet, the film is regarded a cult item for all the right reasons: Even though it features only occasional glimpses of nudity, the film is sensuous as can be, its combination of pulp fiction mainstays and lyrical filmmaking is quite fascinating, the camerawork and very associative editing style prove Rollin's highly artistic vision, and as a whole the movie just takes you into a weird parallel universe that's as weird and bizarre, surreal even, as it's sexy and alluring. Truth to be told, might not be for everyone's taste, but totally a must-see if you're even only a bit into the unusual.
