The film was not released theatrically in Germany and only became available there in 2003, in DVD format. Rumors about German being the original language of the film probably are wrong, as the DVD had to have new dubbing. Most Eurocine productions were shot without sound and dubbed later, in different languages, according to the different markets. See more »
Albert Radeck de Franval:
Eugenie, you've just discovered life's deepest purpose: the quest, the grail mankind has sought throughout the ages - ultimate power of human beings. Yes, the power which comes from the pleasure of giving pain. Living each moment with intensity and awareness while they suffer. You'll find out that the key to life is nothing but your own pleasure.

Third Jess Franco film I saw after Bloody Moon and Vampyros Lesbos. After seeing Soledad Miranda in Vampyros Lesbos, I was keen to see more of her films, and I wasn't disappointed, she really carried the film with her great screen presence. Very interesting story and great direction from Franco and interesting surreal visuals especially with the first murder, loved Soledad's red gear. A lot of nudity and sex but Soledad looks great. So all of you who love Soledad Miranda or Jess Franco this film is a must. I saw a lot of links to films such as Peeping Tomand the work of Hitchcock however this took it a lot further, which was great to see.
