What did you do that for? Poor soul! You shattered the big ebony phallus! Poor soul! Misery is now your lot!
Misery? I'll be miserable?
Poor soul! Beyond words! You must get away from here. You'll fry in your own hell, believe me. Ask me no questions, just get away from here.

Jess Franco brings to us another one of his Eurocine specials. This zombie/softcore entry introduces us to Christina a youmg girl who has been raised in boarding schools her entire life. Her mother died when she was very young and she hasn't seen her father since she was a child. When Christina (the titular Virgin in the title) is summoned to her ancestral home for the reading of her father's will she meets her twisted relatives who expose her to their strange lifestyles. This is basically a witches' brew of a film. Add an easily coruptable virgin,twisted family perverts, a french castle, a pinch of zombie pathos and a generous helping of skin and presto. This is one of Jess Franco's better looking films with good photography and decent camera work. The movie was recently released in a director's cut dvd version by Image and is well worth a look for fans and the occasional Jess Franco virgin. 7/10
