Another Jess Franco snoozer, 12 August 2003
Author: macabro357 from U.S.

(aka: EROTIKILL or FEMALE VAMPIRE)

I saw the Image DVD and although there may have been some hard-core sex scenes that were deleted from it, I doubt I'd do anything for this film. In fact, I doubt anything can save the viewer from this boredom.

Lina Romay appears out of the fog with nothing on except a cape and a belt, with the camera zooming down and focusing on her black pubic hair region. Typically crass for Franco. Still, I don't mind watching.

We get to see Lina as a Austrian countess who if you watch the EROTIKILL version, sucks blood out the traditional vampire way, or if you watch the FEMALE VAMPIRE version, sucks sperm (or other sexual bodily fluids) out of her victims the untraditional soft-core way.

Most of the film involves soft-core scenes of Lina having sex with men, women, bedposts, pillows, herself, etc. and although I love looking at Lina's naked body, I'm not so sure I want to spend (almost) 2 hours doing so.

The Image DVD uses a good print that does have some sprocket damage that's quite noticeable during the whipping scene (which looks pretty tame, btw) and some alternative footage from EROTIKILL which shows Romay biting people's necks and the blood dripping from her mouth. That's about the only blood you'll see in this film, and it's not even in the FEMALE VAMPIRE version.

Sorry Lina but even you can't carry it.
