A serial killer rips out the heart of his victims, and Detective Inspector Clifford (Anthony Valentine) is in charge of the investigation without any lead. While listening to the radio, he becomes aware of a best-seller, in which the killer also removes the heart of his victims, and Clifford meets the writer, Natalie (Suzanne Danielle), and she tells that the character was based on a countess that lived centuries ago. Clifford asks for an appointment with the descendant, Mrs. Henska (Siân Phillips), who becomes his suspect number one. Although under investigation, the murders do not stop and Clifford tries to find other clue. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Only to be considered as late night viewing when there is nothing else on TV!
2 November 2008 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I don't think that having a beautiful actress saves this film. It is patchy at best. I believe it was filmed in 1980 however I was sure it was 1960's due to the production values! Although, maybe I am being unduly harsh as most films from the 80's were poor so this fits right in. This movie has been done to death (exuse the pun) a thousand times over and there is nothing new or different here.

I'm not sure if they were cashing in on the hammer name on this one. Which is a shame because all it is doing is making a mockery out of the original Hammer series.

Funny to see a young Piers Brosnan though!
