A young woman is hired to care for an elderly man who lives on an island off the Greek coast. When she arrives there the man warns her that his daughters are evil and dangerous. The woman discovers that one of the daughters is a crazed nymphomaniac who pursues, and seduces, everyone in the house, including her crippled sister. Written by
Extremely bizarre, poetic and sometimes revolting film from director Jess Franco. A woman (Alice Arno) in desperate need of work goes to a remote Greek Island to care for a man (Paul Muller). The man warns her that his two daughters, one a nymphomaniac (Lina Romay) and the other a cripple, are both dangerous. Soon the nympho is seducing the woman as well as others in the house. This is a Franco film where sex is all over the place ranging from softcore to some hardcore scenes some of which are fairly disgusting to watch. Franco pretty much grabs the viewer by the throat and drags them through the dreamlike world he creates. One of the revolting scenes features Romay raping her sister with a banana and the bloody aftermath. The brilliant music score by Daniel White also helps the film and its weirdness. Viewed in French without subs.
