Foolish Grave Robbing Thieves, who also dump toxic waste meet their eye-gouging demise with the beautiful Living Dead Girl after a small tremor awakens her from her coffin. After Catherine racks up a 3 man body count, she wanders the beautiful French country side barefoot and only wearing a white gown and is photographed by a tourist and her husband. The tourist woman becomes obsessed that this Living Dead Girl is the young Catherine only back from the dead and confronts her. After a few more naked dead people pile up, Helene unsuccessfully attempts to feed Catherine with a dead bird, then kidnaps a random woman and gives her to Catherine who then tears the victim apart.
Most fans of Rollin expect his films to be loaded with French styled gore and nudity and also are aware of the slow pacing in between scenes. Such is the staple for Euro Sleaze.
The films last 10 minutes kick in to high gear and to honest, it is pretty damn grueling to the degree of saying out loud "what other horror film can offer such goodies"?
Catherine then frees her next stripped bare victim and sets her loose, realizing that she is evil and hates herself. Then Helene sets a tourist on fire who flees screaming and jumps off a bridge and chops another tourists head with a midieval axe. Catherine attempts to drown herself in a lake but is rescued by Helene. In Catherine's fury she rips Helene to shreds and devours her with a slow backwards moving camera shot, leaving the blood-soaked Catherine alone in the dark.
I enjoy the movie as a Sensual Thriller, but as far as "horror" i felt i was left wanting more. Mild on effects and atmosphere but it does deliver on sex and nudity, this film explores how far a best friend would go for a childhood promise. There is plenty of near sensual bloody action, most of which revolves around our undead female feeding on blood to regain her memories and sustain life. She is not a vampire, though her feeding habits imitate it closely and daylight does not bother her and so much of the action occurs during daylight hours and uses no witchcraft, demons, or other elaborate mystical reasons for these events other than a blood pact made by the two girls as children.
So i would suggest going into this movie looking for the feel of an adult Twilight Zone if anything. There is no bump in the night or mystical talisman to banish eternal evil, no cobwebbed corridors or fog covered graveyards. Just a near lesbian sensual thriller with a chick drinking blood from mostly hot females' throats.
For what it is it is a good movie, but i went into the movie expecting a different experience and style of film.
Quick synopsis--earthquake, chemical spill, and a hot zombie chick is now craving Ben & Jerry's Chunky Munkey ice cream. Just kidding, she's thirsty for blood of the human variety. Let the sucking commence!
This story has some graphic nudity to accompany the ultra-bloody kills. It doesn't spend too much time fumbling around with irrelevant stuff like plot, dialogue, or character development. It's a bit gothic, pretty erotic, and somewhat artistic. But really it concentrates on the bloody visuals. The effects are maybe just a tad unrealistic looking but the insane amount of the red stuff makes it lots of fun for you gorehounds.
"I emptied these bodies of blood so that it may flow in mine. To turn me into a living dead girl."
