The Anchor Bay release of the film is in English, also dubbed in English to clean up the Spanish accents of the actors attempting English throughout. It is not likely that a Spanish language version of this film exists. See more »

An unique erotic vampire movie with some surprises.
The movie isn't a very close version of Sheridan Le Fanu's masterful novel "Carmilla" and it has got nothing to do with Matthew G. Lewis as far as i can tell; maybe someone thought of the "Bleeding nun" segment in his novel "The Monk"; but that's an entirely different story. It is a very slow movie for today's standards, but this makes the innovative imagery even more shocking and surprising. Last but not least, most of the movie's credit must go to the performance of the lovely leading ladies.
