Trivia:
This film exists in many different versions, with different titles, additional and/or deleted footage and even with different credits, although the latter is largely due to variations of Jesús Franco's pseudonyms. The versions range from hardcore porn with little horror on the one extreme to plain horror with little sex on the other.See more »

Sexploitation with a Female Vampire that Sucks More than Blood, 26 July 2014
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In the Madeira Island, the mute Countess Irina Karlstein (Lina Romay) is the last descendant of the evil Karlstein vampire family. She lives with her also mute servant and seems to be nymphomaniac, seeking for sex most of the time without satisfaction. Irina likes oral sex with men and women to suck off not only semen, but apparently also blood, killing her male and female lovers.

"La Comtesse Noire" is a soft-core movie of sexploitation without story and the only intention is apparently expose the naked body of Lina Romay that works naked all the time. I have just watched the French version released in Brazil, with audios in English (and Portuguese subtitle) and Portuguese only. The funny thing is, if you watch with audio and subtitle in Portuguese, they do not match. This version has an explicit fellatio of Irina with one of her victims and seems to be a home video, with a messy screenplay and an annoying music score that is repeated every time that Lina Romay is naked meaning that along the entire movie. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "A Maldição da Vampira" ("The Curse of the Female Vampire")
