The film was rejected for UK cinema by the BBFC in 1972. It was finally released on video in 1993 by Redemption after extensive cuts of 6 minutes 55 secs to heavily edit shots of chained women in a cellar being stripped and raped by vampires, and a scene where Marie is whipped by Michelle.

This film was rated higher by others than I would have thought. Vampires usually do a lot of biting and blood sucking. There was more erotic virgin handling and molestation than biting and the like in this one. The use of silence in the film gave it a surreal quality. The whole movie was dream-like. The lure of the victims was not captured. The chase and seduction is the best thing about vampires but those subtleties were lost here. But, I must admit, the film did remind me of Vampyros Lesbos and, to a lesser extent, Suspiria. I must state that vampire films do not have to be bloody etc. But a little blood at the bite would have been welcomed. Not a bad watch if you seek those who walk at night.
