These are the Daughters of Darkness... They are waiting for you - They thrive on BLOOD




It is a film full of eroticism and sensuality with the vampires. It was a favorite theme and genre of that era to movies sensual content with the specific theme, other times with more intense connotations and other times with milder. This I believe is somewhere in the middle. The whole eroticism played among the protagonists of the film although the protagonist does not remain and this unsatisfying! It is a co-production between Belgium, Germany and France. Watch the story of Báthory Komissas although is slightly distorted. It has no particular surprises because from the beginning we are given to understand who is behind the killings, what is the Countess and how it will evolve.

Horror Trivia

Filmed entirely in English, although the actors were Germans, Belgians and French people and hear their own voices and for this reason we have and heavy accent when they speak.

Good performances, very good picture, good storyline. The term is somewhat large for the topic with which it deals and some scenes might also be a bit unnecessary and evolution is not as fast as I would like. The characters in places seem curious, frivolous and naive. Didn't we learn many things for them, just guessing and we assume as the film progresses. Very nice soundtrack and the atmosphere of the movie compensates for any disadvantages. Entypwsiakotati the Delphine Seyrig in the role of Komissas Mpatori. For those who are keen on this kind of films I think will especially enjoy.

Good movie in General, belongs to the field of cult film sensual. Has some gaps and weaknesses but the atmosphere and aesthetics of the saves from being characterized as moderate.

I love good cinema in all its kinds. But horror movies are my favorite. Nothing compares to a good horror movie. So I consider it my duty to inform you, horror fans for classical and not just horror movies. To remember the old and young people learn.
