Slow-going, but not bad..., 27 May 2003
Author: macabro357 from U.S.

Blond-haired robber arrives at a chateau inhabited by only Lahaie and Mai after being perused by those he double-crossed in a robbery.

There's a couple of soft-core sex scenes involving the blond-haired robber and Lahaie as well as a lesbo scene with Mai.

In fact, Lahaie spends a lot of time taking her clothes off in this film. Even as she swings that scythe at the female robber, her boobs manage to ooze out from under her cloak. It's an ok gore scene with the scythe, although what's really special is how erotic Lahaie looks, naked underneath that cloak

Then night falls and Lahaie and Mai's blood-drinking female pals arrive and the fun really starts.

There are a couple of plot twists to the ending which I won't reveal but suffice it to say that this isn't one of my favorite Rollin films, although it does have it's erotic moments. I don't know why Rollin fans think so highly of this film. I'll leave that for THE GRAPES OF DEATH or his urban nightmare, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTED.

The Redemption DVD doesn't have much in the lines of extras beyond a couple of interesting trailers. It seems the French trailer has even more nudity and pubic hair being shown than the actual film does, especially when they're chomping down on Lahaie's blood in the nighttime scene from the bridge. What gives? Too much for the under 18 crowd?

The print is slightly scratchy but not too bad. Poor handling, I guess...

5 out of 10 for not being terribly scary, but for slight eroticism...
