Editorial Reviews

Countess Irina (Lina Romay) lives on the island of Madeira, Portugal, where she must drain the ''life force'' of men and women for her own survival. One of her lovers/victims is a poet (Jack Taylor) who believes the undead countess is meant for him. Prolific exploitation director Jess Franco filmed this influential erotic chiller -- which established Romay (who Franco later married) as an erotic and horror film icon -- on location on Madeira. ENGLISH DUBBED (also includes original French w/ English Subtitles) BONUS FEATURES: Two complete versions of the film: a ''horror version'' (72 mins) and an ''erotic version'' (104 min), Interview with Jess Franco, Alternate title sequence and more.

The new IMAGE DVD of Jess Franco's "Female Vampire" is a welcome addition to any Francophile or euro-horror fan's collection. The movie reeks with an ethereal mood and pace and the euro-lounge theme music (played through about 90% of the flick!) is catchy and will haunt you long afterwards. Irina the lonely vampire goes from one victim to the next --- that's about it for story --- but who cares! This is Franco at his best! Be forewarned --- this is definitely a Very Mature movie so keep the young ones away! Released in a few different versions over the years, this 101 minute version is closest to "The Loves of Irina" version once released on VHS by Private Screenings. Alternate scenes from the "Erotikill" version are included as a supplement (app. 8 minutes) and basically include all the attack scenes which show Irina drinking blood. For some reason, the alternate scenes are not in chronological order. The movie is letterboxed at 2.35:1 and looks fine, but some shots seem to be over matted (but maybe that's just the way it is). Image quality is a bit soft and there are two moments of print damage (streaking of image for app. 30 seconds -sprocket hole damage?), but basically it's a very nice presentation and a MUST BUY!!! The DVD also has one trailer (in French only).

It never fails that every time I experience this film, and I've seen it now about three times in the past year, it produces a vastly different reaction each time I view it. I bounce from absolute admiration for Franco's directorial style, dreamy camerawork and musical score, and committed performances from the cast, to thinking that this is nothing but a cheap, porno-wanna-be-flick with absolutely nothing to do with "vampires", and no artistic integrity whatsoever. Fortunately, the positive vibes win out over the negative and I, once again, admire this film and all that is right and wrong with it. If I fail to make sense, well good then, because neither does this flick. Ms. Romay is, to say the least, totally uninhibited as she romps about the beautifully filmed outdoor scenes while a Chopin-like score lusciously underscores her every movement. Her scenes with the bed posts are, er...., quite a moment in the Euro-Erotic field, and the way she swishes and moves about on her bed like a pent-up, totally horny young woman about to have an orgasm for the first time is, well...... something to see. I love the moments of male frontal nudity, especially a scene where Ms. Romay is seducing a hotel masseur. The simulated sex is quite laughable, especially since our young man can't seem to "get it up". This is quite an atmospheric film and, if you love your 70's horror/vampire flicks, I think you will find much to admire in this one.

Lina Romay, just dressed in high boots and a cape, slowly walks around in the foggy woods. The wonderful titlemusic by Daniel White is playing. Director Jess Franco is zooming in on her genitals, then he zooms out again. She is now walking towards the camera... and hitting her face in the cameralense. This is the so-called poetic intro of this weird film. Romay plays the vampire who must suck... ,well it's not blood exactly, to survive. The real hard-core scenes are censored from most versions of this film. So here we have a porn, with most of the explicit scenes cut, and left is the weird story, if we could call it a story. This is just a strange mess set on a hotel. A female reporter is going to interview Romay, who can't talk so she just have to nod or shake her head to answer. It ends up in lesbian sex ofcourse. Some cops are researching the murders and one, played by Jess Franco himself, believes it can be a vampire involved. Jack Taylor plays the male lead (yes, the guy from Polanskis The Ninth Gate). He is dubbed by a guy talking so bad english that it gives the impression that Jack is retarded. This is weird fun if you are into strange euro films, guess you know yourself if you wan't to see this film. I like it but I would lie if I said it was a good film.

Format: Blu-ray
The film industry suffered a major loss this past month with the passing of the greatest erotic Horror film maker ever, Jesus Franco and last year , his muse Lina Romay who created some of the most incredible images ever to grace the screen. Redemption has been releasing the Franco Image Entertainment releases of over a decade ago in new Blu-Ray incarnations so that first time viewers and Franco fans can appreciate his style and mojo better than ever. After the death of his major leading lady Soledad Miranda, Franco discovered 19 year old Lina Romay who worked behind the scenes for many of his productions and with this film 'FEMALE VAMPIRE'aka 'LA COMTESSE AUX SEINS NUS' aka 'LES AVALEUSES'- 1973, their erotic fusion was set. Included at the party are Franco stalwarts Alice Arno who would also be immortalized in 'THE PERVERSE COUNTESS' made the same year; Jack Taylor as the doomed Baron Von Rathony; the eccentric Monica Swinn and of course, a cameo from Jess himself. The film is one of his most popular titles and which was the first to reach the home video market back in the Eighties under various versions released by Private Screenings and Wizard Video among others. That's because there are at least three different versions out there: a Horror version known as 'THE BARE-BREASTED COUNTESS' or 'EROTIKILL'; a soft core version known as 'THE LOVES OF IRINA'; and a hardcore version known as 'LES AVALEUSES' aka 'THE SWALLOWERS'. When Image Entertainment first released it on DVD under the title 'FEMALE VAMPIRE' , it was the soft core version that viewers saw trimmed of some hardcore fellatio scenes which seemed to be inserted and which fails to match the footage already present.Read more ›
