Perhaps distinguishable in the 1980ies, but certainly timeworn now
11 January 2015 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Desolated castles, music boxes, grindings, torches, vamp women with loose hair and loose clothing, streams of blood resembling paint... Sounds odd and hackneyed, at least in 2015, when horror and repulsion are mainly based on suspension and psycho, and the elements mentioned above would unintentionally bring along chuckles or blah-feelings. And in the event of no proper story, multiple scenes not bringing any value to the film apart from extensibility, rather lousy acting (no memorable performance), rambling cinematography, and meaningless nudity (just to stress the French origin and spirit?), the result is mediocre, not grisly and not totally annoying thanks to duration (around 1 hour 20 minutes).

Not my cup of tea, really, and I am unable to ponder whom I could even recommend this film to. If I had watched it after its release, I would perhaps be of another opinion, but you never know...
