(This is the Third film in a sort of Trilogy. 1: The Rape Of The Vampires (1968) 2: The Shiver Of The Vampires (1970) and 3: Requiem For A Vampire (1971))
The Film starts out with the two main characters (Marie-Pierre Castel and Mireille Dargent) dressed as clowns in car chase shooting at the chaser.
They escape and make it to an eerie castle where they are bitten by bats and meet a Vampire woman.
They are taken to a dark graveyard with a dungeon in the center, drenched in red light where the "Caged Virgin's" are held ("Caged Virgins" was the US title when this film was released in the United States.)
There they meet the last true living vampire, he sends them to find male victims and drink their blood so that they may be initiated as vampires.
They each find a man, Mireille Dargent's character lures her pray to the top of the castle, where she kills him. While Marie-Pierre Castel's charactor find a man, but she finds that she likes him. She loses her virginity and hides him in the castle. She lies and says she found no one.
When they are taken to be initiated, the Vampire knows her virginity has been taken, though it had been there just the day before.Read more ›
People who are learning to speak and listen to French can benefit from listening to the soundtrack.
Not too much dialogue, so easier to comprehend.
But don't watch. Your brain will ossify.
Otherwise not much to recommend.
Also, doesn't a Requiem need music? Yes there's one scene with the vampire playing an organ, but he's the one the Requiem is
for, according to the title, so why is he still alive, or conscious, if undead. I'm confused.

This is a crazy psychedelic vampire film. It does have a surprise ending. There is a lot of nudity but the plot is good and yes, it's weird! Great for film nerds!Published 3 months ago by John W. Horton III
