The woman loses herself in the past, and the picture is changing into a night-black scene where a coffin is carried by some shady customers.

But one day he comes across the beautiful fashion designer Catherine (Madalina Ray), who just separates from her husband (Ron Jeremy). They fall passionately in love with each other - Catherine's life changes all in a sudden. Threat and desire are merging...

Our Ranking

short review:

Another film belonging to the sub-genre of adult vampire movies. An impressive scenario (as far as adult movies go) is created, with castles, bloody bites and mental control over the vampire's victims. Catacombs and lots of historical costumes are added for the credibility. Not really bad, but keep in mind: it's adult material with vampiric content!
