Trivia

Christopher Lee claims he had no idea this was softcore porn until he actually saw the movie. Various of his scenes were shot, and then edited in with the sex scenes later and during the opening sequence, he was unaware there was a nude woman on the altar behind him because drapery was swirled over her as soon as the camera stopped rolling and he'd turn around.

NOT HIS BEST, BUT WORTH BUYING CHEAPLY
10 July 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Jess Franco - smut king with talent. Maybe not at his best in this film, but worth buying for de Sade's writings flung into (what was then) present day, as an innocent girl gets seduced by a pervy couple and goes to stay with them upon her father's agreement. She gets sucked into a perversion story before becoming the perversion herself, when violent things naturally happen.

The sex is very restrained for a Franco film, and Chris Lee looks vaguely ashamed in a limited role. But Lee's comments on the DVD about finding himself in a film showing in porn cinemas in Soho, entirely to his surprise, are worthy of purchase alone. He also praises Franco, as he should - the guy has vision, but don't ask me what that vision is!

To see Jess Franco at his erotic best, buy Female Vampire. For Franco completists, and fans of: quirky genre films, the forgotten roles of Christopher Lee, or mildly spicy filmic delights - get to see Eugenie!
