Despite a little over use of the zoom lens now and again and inexplicably repeated lines this is a pretty well made Jess Franco movie. The budget must have been decent because picture quality and cinematography above par with some excellent location shooting, inside and outside. Costumes are also good, he must have borrowed those from some other film, and there is some effort to keep the tale within known historical events. None of this is to say, however, that there aren't lashings of sex. There is some torture but not overly done, no it is the sex scenes that predominate and fairly erotic and varied they are too. Anne Libert does well in the lead and generously shares her body with most of the rest of the leads. Howard Vernon is set against type for once and I reckon acquitted himself better than when he is given reign to go jumping and over acting everywhere
