Film #49: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS aka LE ROUGE AUX LEVRES
Daughter of Darkness (aka (LE ROUGE AUX LEVRES)
2 out of 5 stars
Directed by Harry Kümel and featuring John Karlen (Willie Loomis from DARK SHADOWS), DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS is a rather slow “erotic thriller” which is neither erotic nor thrilling. Character motivations are thin to say the least. Acting is stiff and unappealing. The story… is without much of interest and the ending is one you’ll see coming from afar. Nostalgic fans may find something of interest, but frankly… I was bored. The film is something horror fans should all see at least once, I guess, but… go in with VERY low expectations… or rent VAMPYRES (aka VAMPYRES: DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS aka DAUGHTERS OF DRACULA) instead.
