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

Jean Rollin's tribute to Ed Wood?
9 March 2001 | by ragnarok2001See all my reviews

Dear oh dear. It might be easy to take cheap swipes at M. Rollin, but this looks likes such an amateurish effort. Terrible acting, contrived and sloppy action, meandering plot, cheap props. I hate to twist the knife, but it certainly breathes new life into the expression "Z-grade".

The video blurb looked so promising - two girls raped by wreckers, take refuge in an abandoned abbey where they make a pact with the Devil to seek revenge. But Jean Rollin seems determined to disappoint. Way too much time is spent on watching people walking long distances, or labouring blindingly obvious plot developments (the psychic brothel madam excels at this!)

There is not nearly enough skin to compensate for having to sit through this, though some spiritied sex scenes do capture the attention. The biggest draw of the film for me was the female member of the wrecker gang (character Tina). I wish I knew who the actress was. Gorgeous, spirited, and great without clothes! Shame she can't act, but I may excuse her. I have a soft spot for beautiful girls who get sexually aroused by wicked deeds.

Bizarre points include the Devil's two attendants - a female clown, and a Rasputin look-a-like. And never did so much plaster statuary give its life for a movie!

In summary, only rent this video for the gorgeous female wrecker, fast forward through the rest.
