the girls are of course enchanting
22 March 2010 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

A fine film. Not, perhaps quite as effective as the rather similar and later, Fascination, but there is still enough to enjoy. Those wind blown see through dresses again for one, or should that be four? No Brigitte Lahaie in this one but the lovely girls in this do well enough. Not quite sure why two of them have to wear something underneath their diaphanous garments but perhaps I have no right to quibble. Bit more story to this one, which actually slows it down a little but this is an interesting enough tale, the girls are of course enchanting and menacing at the same time and Rollin knows well enough how to make the very most of a simple Gothic location.
