"Daughters of Darkness"
Directed by Harry Kumel
This classic, cult
vampire favorite, originally cut by more than 12 minutes, is restored to the full film
that director Harry Kumel intended. A pair of newlyweds stop at a posh French hotel and
encounter the Scarlet Countess (Delphine Seyrig), a stunning and seductive woman who,
according to the hotel owner, hasn't aged a day in 40 years. Before long, the couple's
innocent intrigue leads them into a sexually charged game of cat and mouse as the
mysterious countess turns deadly. "Subtle, stately, stunningly colored and
. The most artistic vampire shocker since Blood and Roses"
(The New York Times). With Andrea Rau, Danielle Ouimet and John Karlen.
A Belgian, French, German Federal Republic co-production. In English.
