A fine film, beautifully photographed. Leisurely, yes, even majestic but I consider it unfair to refer to this dreamlike splendour as, 'boring'. Such a subjective term, anyway but tends to be slapped upon films such as this because they do not adhere to the 'normal' narrative structure. What in life does, I ask myself? Actually, I have found some of Rollin's films just a little too seemingly meaninglessly repetitive but rest assured this beauty doe not fall into that trap. Beautiful ladies appear and disappear in colourful, flowing see through gowns. There is a baddie who might yet be more of a goodie than the good ladies, plus great use of a Gothic location. I must also mention the gorgeous, Brigitte Lahaie. She did much work with the erratic, Jess Franco but she never looked better than she does here, deadly scythe notwithstanding.
