Soledad Miranda plays the Countess Nadine who lures people back to her island for vampiric enslavement and a bit of necro-nookie. Naughty Nadine also has a liking for female flesh and blood. When Linda Westinghouse (Ewa Strömberg) pays a visit to the Countess on her island, she soon falls prey to the seductive charms of her demonic host. Can she escape the clutches of this blood-sucking vixen?

So, it's a Jess Franco movie. You either love him or hate him. His manner of filmmaking is definitely not everyone's first choice! And he did better than in this case. A weird story, filmed in weird pictures, with a soundtrack that is… uh oh. The one thing that rescues this film is the beautiful (and late) Soledad Miranda, but that's not enough. Watch it, if you are curious about anything refering to Vampires, but don't expect a great movie!
