Conrado San Martín,
Women's prison tale, with Lina Romay as Maria who is jailed after killing her father, played by director Jess Franco, who tries to rape her. Lesbian wardens, torture, nudity, sex, insanity and conspiracy round out the formula.
In the Madeira Island, the mute Countess Irina Karlstein is the last descendant of the evil Karlstein vampire family. She lives with her also mute servant and seems to be nymphomaniac, seeking for sex most of the time without satisfaction. Irina likes oral sex with men and women to suck off not only semen, but apparently also blood, killing her male and female lovers.Written by

The back cover of Image Entertainment's DVD release shows pictures from the more horror-oriented version of the film titled "ErotiKill". These scenes are not actually in the "Female Vampire" version of the movie, although some of these alternate scenes are included as extras on the Image DVD. See more »
Along with the original Dr. Orloff, this is probably one of Franco's best films (although I can't claim to have seen even a high percentage of them), and its mostly down to the extraordinary presence of Lina Romay and the lush score which accompanies her every move. She's still one of Franco's favourite leading ladies, but this was her defining moment.
