A witch is burned at the stake and swears her daughters will seek revenge for her death. This is a rather disappointing effort from director Jess Franco. The film is too slow and it seems the director doesn't know if he wants to make a straight witch film or a sexploitation film dealing with lesbian nuns and various other beautiful women. The score doesn't help matters either. However, seeing lesbian nuns in action is a reason to check it out. There are at least nine versions of this film out there.
The DVD set I have contains two other versions but this one here is a 2003 edit by Franco.
