Daughters of Darkness

Daughters of Darkness

Directed by Harry Kümel

In this 1971 erotic Euro-horror classic, a pair of newlyweds become the targets of the vampire Countess Bathory and her female lover, who’ve been draining local vixens of their blood for centuries. But the Countess has bigger plans for the couple, and so she begins cleverly pitting them against each other until she can strike. Arthouse icon Delphine Seyrig’s Dietrich-meets-DeSade-ian embodiment of the Countess and director Harry Kümel’s chilling fusion of surreal and expressionist horror elements helped turn DOD into a critical success and a still-treasured cult hit.

A pair of newlyweds become the targets of a bloodthirsty vampire countess and her female lover.

Cast: Delphine Seyrig, John Karlen, Danielle Ouimet

Sooo good! Art direction, beauty, camp, heat. Fun to watch and also great to have on in the background perhaps projected for ambiance.

sumptuous, yet campy. So many left turns, it was a lot of fun and I will probably watch this again sometime.
