Storyline

While driving on tour late night through a lonely road in the countryside of Spain, the van of the punk band "Killer Barbys" has an accident and breaks down. A creepy old man invites the group to spend the night in the castle of Countess Von Fledermaus and presents himself as her secretary Arkan. Arkan explains that the mechanic is located 62 km far from the location and he tells that the Countess loves youths. Flavia, Rafa and Mario accept the invitation but Billy and Sharon stay shagging in the van. When the musicians meet the Countess, they find that she is the ancient artist Olga Luchan and they question how she could keep so young. But sooner they discover that the Countess needs blood of young people to keep her beauty. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Originally to be titled "Killer Barbies", which is the actual name of the punk rock band that stars in the movie, but Mattel would not allow the use of their Barbie trademark name, so the word's spelling in the title (as well as all the references to the band's name in the movie) was ultimately changed to "Barbys".

Absolute garbage! A sad low point for cult favourite Jess Franco.
8 June 2003 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

I'd been warned this was bad before I watched it, but nothing could prepare me for just HOW bad! If this was made by some nameless hack I would have watched it and immediately forgotten about it, but as it's directed by Jess Franco, the man responsible for cult favourites like 'Vampyros Lesbos', 'Succubus', 'Eugenie De Sade', 'A Virgin Among The Living Dead', 'Sadisterotica' and 'Faceless', I couldn't help but be a little depressed... 'Killer Barbys' is absolute garbage any way you look at it and a sad low point for Franco. It's very hard to think of one good thing to say about it. Okay, The Barbies lead singer Silvia Superstar is pretty hot and their song 'Love Killer' isn't bad and rocks in a similar way to The Muffs or The Donnas. That's about it for praise. Apart from that, this movie stinks. Franco has done wonders on minimal budgets before in his long career, so that's no excuse for how poor this is. There are some talented people in the cast too - spaghetti western regular Aldo Sambrell, who will be a familiar face to Sergio Leone fans, co-star of the wonderful 'The Day Of The Beast' Santiago Segura, and Mariangela Giordano ('The Sect'). But the script is awful, the special effects lame, and the dubbing on the DVD I watched atrocious. If you hold Jess Franco in high esteem like I do, it's best to avoid this rubbish. You'll just feel cheated and sad. Highly UNrecommended!
