These are the Daughters of Darkness... They are waiting for you - They thrive on BLOOD
|Daughters of Darkness|
While on their honeymoon, a pair of newlyweds find themselves stranded at a Belgian hotel where there are only three others in the whole building. One is the hotel manager and the other is an elegant Hungarian Countess (Seyrig). Oh, and the Countess's pouty and curvaceous servant/slave girl is also there. The Countess tells the couple tales of the Countess Bathory, an evil woman who drank and bathed in the blood of virgin girls to retain her youth until she was imprisoned in her own castle by the angry townsfolk hundreds of years ago. The hotel manager was a young bellhop when this Hungarian Countess originally came to stay at the hotel and she hasn't aged a day in forty years. Could this Countess staying at the hotel be the same Countess Bathory that murdered virgin slave girls to attain immortality centuries ago? Yes. Yes she is.
I do give Daughters of Darkness a thumbs up. It is slow - some will find it painfully so - but it's also a stylish, mesmerizing and unsettling film that's worth checking out, especially if you like lesbian vampires or deserted Flemish hotels. Hell, just watch it for Delphine Seyrig's performance.
