Once again, this film goes to prove that it's lethal to love this woman!
17 May 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Angélique is apparently one dangerous woman to love. So far, in the previous films, she had sex with three men and they soon died. Now, at the prologue to this third film, you see her brand new husband who she wed at the end of the second film...and of course, he dies! I felt like yelling out to each man she slept with in this film to run! While she herself never killed anyone, the results are still hard to discount--two lovers and two husbands dead.

Soon after this latest death, the King himself (Louis XIV) meets with our heroine and begs her to help convince the Persian Ambassador to agree to a treaty. However, what they didn't realize was that the handsome Persian was in fact a sexual sadist. So, it is up to the King's half- brother, some Hungarian prince, to save Angélique from the evil troll's clutches. Later, the Prince returns to get a thank you bit of nookie and I automatically assumed he'd soon be dead.

Later, she is summoned to Louis' court and it appears she's about to become his mistress. However, when she learns that her first husband might not be dead, she leaves in search of him--a good idea since someone is trying to poison her at Versailles. Unfortunately, whoever dislikes her isn't just trying to get her away from the King, as they soon make another attempt to poison her in her own palace (this, by the way, is a particularly cool scene). Does it ever end for poor Angélique?! Just before she can go off in search of her missing husband, Angélique accidentally stumbles into a Satanic cult at Versailles!! And it's not the nice Satanic cults that give out donuts and candy on pagan holidays, but the baby sacrificing kind! Will our dear heroine survive? Will she get back her scarred but sexy Marquis? Will men stop dying once they have sex with her? Tune in to find out for yourself.

Overall, this film is a good bit better than the second sequel. The second had even more plot elements and twists than this one--too many for one film. Here, though there seems to be everything but the kitchen sink thrown in, at least it's easier to follow and more satisfying.
