Storyline

Le Capitaine, le Bosco and two other sailors are dangerous ship wreckers. This time, they have done even worse mischief than usual, for not content to have lured a ship into coastal rocks and plundered it, they have also brutally raped and left for dead the two girls who have survived the wreck. But helped by a mysterious clown, by an exorcist on the beach and by... Satan himself, the two virgins turned she-devils will ruthlessly exact their terrible vengeance. Written by Guy Bellinger

Pirates, clowns, nude mute girls and sex, French-style.
13 October 2000 | by Eegah GuySee all my reviews

I have a problem with Jean Rollin films. Despite all the stylish surrealism, great French locations and nudity I still find his films incredibly boring. I do appreciate Rollin's persistence of vision throughout his string of poetic sex/horror exploitation films through the 70s (clowns, castles, twins, beaches) but my mind begins to wander during his films and this is no exception. The plot follows a dream logic known only to the director with too much time spent watching these sailors fight, rape or just sit in a bar. The one female in the sailor gang really does inject some gusto into the her part though.
