For some reason the Netflix version is in French without subtitles. As I can barely understand French, I was not able to adequately understand the film, and for that I am giving it a 5 -- neither good nor bad. If I see a version with subtitles, I will modify the film as necessary.
As it is, I can only really talk about the visuals, which I thought were decent for a Jess Franco film. Certainly not his best work, but fans of his cheaper bits will enjoy it, I suppose. Not sure what was up with the black phallic object. I get that this film is partially about eroticism (something that Franco and Jean Rollin seem to have a monopoly on), but that would suggest they crossed the line from erotic to just plain smutty.
