This bizarre, surrealistic erotic-horror film was the first feature by cult director Jean Rollin. There's a great deal of sex, blood, and arty imagery but very little plot to speak of. What plot there is primarily focuses on a pair of insane vampiric sisters who believe that they are cursed by a black Queen Vampire who wears a salamander headband and carries a broadsword. The film got dreadful reviews for its well-nigh incomprehensible mix of densely graphic imagery, Gaston Leroux poetry, and dialogue which was more than half improvised. The results were mostly regrettable, but Rollin completists will find enough unique touches to make it worth watching. Rollin returned with the even stranger La Vampire Nue.
