Storyline

After Phil Guard and Normandin capture two Vampires, Irma Vep and Moreno, the latter is guillotined and the woman is condemned to life imprisonment. The authorities as well as Philip, good reporter that he was, were lulled into security, thinking the Vampires were now powerless. They did not even know about Satanas, who was now leader of the band. Before her incarceration for life, Irma Vep is sent by the authorities to Algeria to testify regarding a crime committed there. Before leaving the detention home to board the vessel, she receives comforting information from a priest. The man is really Satanas in disguise. Satanas tells her that once on shipboard she must feign illness and be sent to the infirmary near the stern of the vessel, with his wonderful electric gun Satanas will destroy the ship, the projectile striking near the bow. Thus Irma will have a chance to regain her liberty. Even if she dies, that will be better than a life spent in prison. The ship is destroyed and Irma ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Ch. 7
21 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This seventh episode has perhaps the most impressive sets, and best shots of 1916 Paris of all of the chapters of this serial.

Under hypnosis of Moreno, Irma Vep kills the Grand Vampire. Moreno is attacked and paralised by a man in top hat and tails we learn is Satanas, the real Grand Vampire (how the bloody hell many Grand Vampires are there?) He sets off a canon during another fancy dress ball, even as a girl stands right in front o fit, almost completely oblivious to its presence.

To cut this overlong and confusing story short, Satanas eventually offers Iram and Moreno a chance to work for him, in exchange for their lives. More forgeries follow, more false identities assumed, another trap fallen into, and there is still several hours' worth of footage to tell the story, which has already grown so very confusing.
