 This is Jean Rollin's first movie and while I'm generally a fan of his films this is also probably my least favorite of his works. To be fair, technically this is two short films stuck together to make a feature so that helps explain the disjointed feel that it has. It's also probably the most artsy of Rollin's movies that I've seen and acts as a sort-of unfinished blueprint for the themes he would explore in his future endeavors. There are two positive things that stand out about this. One, of course, is the ample female nudity on display. It seems that vampire women in this world cannot figure out how to close their tops over their nipples. The second is this awesome paper mache? and bedsheets giant makeshift bat that shows up near the end of the movie which might be one of the goofiest things ever. Besides these two assets this is a slow movie to plow through. For Eurotrash/Rollin-completists only. AKA QUEEN OF THE VAMPIRES and VAMPIRE WOMEN

Still better than CGI!:
