  1. Joel's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Quite compelling and atmospherically rich, does a good job at creating an erotic sense without the later more pornographic tendencies of the genre.

  2. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

  3. Aaken's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Atmospheric and bewitching. Delphine Seyrig's performance, her 30's Marlene Dietrich look, her voice, her elegance make it an iconic characterisation of Elisabeth Báthory in this film. Harry Kümel creates a stylish and timeless film, combining the framework of the genre with an art film approach, resulting in a striking visual beauty and a poetic depth without any use of the supernatural. A world apart.

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Above average vampire movie. As nobody wears crosses nowadays and as our bio-vegetarian chefs have banned garlic from their recipes, it's rather natural that ghouls are spreading all across Europe. They're even in Belgium now, tomorrow they'll be in your garden. Strongly recommended.

  8. natalieb's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    c'était franchement pas mal et puis, au beau milieu, ça se gâte terriblement, jusqu'au ridicule. dommage.

  9. Tibulle85's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    (Vu sur Arte) Le film a extrêmement mal vieilli dans tous ses aspects et n'a au final que peu d'intérêt...J'ai du mal à comprendre d'où lui vient son prétendu statut de "film culte". Cerise sur le gâteau: l'interdiction au moins de 18 ans de la part d'Arte m'a bien fait rigoler pour un film qui ne serait même pas interdit au moins de 12 de nos jours...

  10. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

  11. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Certainly one of the best if not the best adaptation on screen of Countess Bathory classic myth, this even if the story takes place nowadays and not during the XVI century. Stylish, catchy, intelligent and imaginative film which goes beyond the limits of the traditional vampire genre. Seyrig is so subtly machiavelian in this role.

  13. marco's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

  14. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    If a B-horror movie wants to homage other films, it could do far worse than Last Year at Marienbad. The production's entire air of mystery really sells it, from the saturated sumptuousness of its colors to the frightening and opaque gender politics (hello, "Mother"). Practically demands analysis and repeated viewing.

  15. lina maj's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    (4.5) Delphine Seyrig is absolutely wonderful - she did know how to play a vampyre with a smile. For me, the film dies together with her. Also, beautiful compositions, textures, outfits, accents.

  16. Luis Pires's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    A very stylish film. Delphine Seyrig looks amazing here, and the clothes were gorgeous. Also, loved the father, very Alice in Wonderland's Caterpillar.

  17. kartina obskura's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    what´s humming there? the waves of ostend or elizabeth´s soft voice or her silver dress or the drops of blood or the fire that burns her body to eternity and the day

  18. Karthik's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Badly acted (except of course for the incomparable Seyrig) with ludicrous tonal shifts & an entirely dispensable subplot (the "detective" figure), BUT the whole so diffusely mistily potent that it leaves one with a sadness one cannot quite name. This has got to be one of my favorite discoveries of the past year: to find such unexpected pleasure in a genre (arty lesbian bloodsucker moodpieces) that I don't care for!

  19. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Lo que más me llama la atención de este filme no tiene que ver con la trivial historia de los seres de ultratumba trascendiendo generaciones y cosechando nuevos serviles. En su lugar es la historia de esa pareja que, curiosamente, también ha hecho su propio pacto sagrado. Es el individuo de inclinaciones perversas, un aspirante a misógino, y la mujer que ha decidido ser humillada hasta que la muerte los separe.

  20. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    That opening scene is perfection

  21. Pymo's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

  22. msmichel's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Classic sapphic vampire film bringing the Elizabeth Bathory character into modern dress (71). Delphine Seyrig is perfect here as Bathory exuding pure sexuality and unrealized dread. Super stylish and uber-erotic like a cross between hammer and soft core porn. Decadent, homo-erotic and mesmerizing. One cannot just look away especially every second Seyrig is on screen (that silver dress just to kill for).

  23. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film Daughters of Darkness

    Bizarre yet strangely involving Vampire film
