Daughters of Darkness

Director: Harry K├╝mel
Year Released: 1971
Rating: 2.0

There is very little substance to this sensual and striking picture - which is more euro-trash softcore than horror - in which two female vampires pursue a couple of newlyweds in a vacant hotel. The real revelation is Delphine Seyrig (a veteran of art-house cinema) who plays the lead countess (dressed up, she closely resembles Marlene Dietrich) particularly well and has no problem delivering the ridiculous dialogue convincingly. The other performers don't fare quite as well, and there are several unintentionally funny lines ("You cannot love! You can only destroy!").
