The Film :

When a young woman named Cathy Tricot is abducted by a group a masked men wearing animal mask right before Pierre very eyes. He decides to investigate this secret society and its secret rituals. What he uncovers is this woman Cathy is of a Vampire origin and that she may hold the key to immortality.

Video:

The DVD presents the movie in the original aspect ratio but is not anamorphically enhanced. The picture looks very soft and although it’s quite clean overall, there are several instances of serious frame damage.

Audio:

The mono audio is easy to understand and there is not much noise. The English dub is well done and sounds clearer then the original French one. No subtitles are provided.

Extras:

Jean Rollin filmography (in Spanish)

Overall:

There is also a French DVD without any English language options and it’s much more expensive than this Spanish one. The cover has an afwful design and the menus, equally hideous, are static with music. This is one of the better Rollin films I have seen, Fascination & Grapes of Death being my favorite ones. It has a weird and stylish atmosphere, but then again, which Rollin movie doesn’t. Although the title suggests otherwhise, this is not one of his typical lesbian vampire movies. The mystery stays until the end… and even beyond.
