A nearly forgotten oddball '70s horror flick with one of the most unusual takes on vampirism in movies, more "Martin" than "Dracula." Stylish and matter-of-fact at the same time with a sweet Cristina Ferrare as the lead murderess. A surprise cult find, if you can find it.
What starts out as an interesting, soft-giallo experiment with vampires quickly turns into your average thriller that isn't quite thrilling. There are a few moments that give you a glimpse of what could have been, but it falls flat under the pretense that you actually haven't already figured out who the(obvious) killer is. Awesome score and a few interesting visuals aside, it's not worth more than a curiosity watch.
Truly an art film when it comes down to the nail, but no coffin to pummel into it with this vampire slasher film. The lead vampiress lends a would-be classic status to those who have had the pleasure of seeing it, driven to murder but performed in a survival rather than psychotic pounce on the prey. The surprisingly stable 'natural' relationship feels forced, but that's the point. Force into a double life.
