A young man meets a stunning woman dressed only in a gossamer dress while wandering around at night. The woman gets taken away by a group of men in fetishistic animal masks and he tracks them to a manour owned by his own father.

The second of director Jean Rollin's debut vampire films, and an interesting look into the French fantastique genre, where fantasy, horror and science fiction meet.

The film is heavily sexualized. The very first scene is of a masked woman being made to undress and her blood being taken. And the movie simply gets stranger from there. So it is very much an erotic film, but not in a way that's at all sexy or arousing. The tone is simply either too clinical or too weird and off-putting. Rather the nude female form is used for emphasis.

The story itself is not half bad, but what keeps this movie from being any better is the tight budget. These are not talented actors, these are not beautiful costumes and while the locations are for the most part pretty nice, they're not utilized very well. The camerawork is stiff and stilted, and the storytelling has no flow to it. We don't know anything about these characters at the beginning and by the end of the film that hasn't changed.

Could be an interesting watch for a diehard vampire fan. Otherwise I'd advice you to look elsewhere.
