A young girl visits her recently deceased father's castle on an island to hear the reading of the will. The castle is inhabited by a vampire-like coterie of eccentrics. The girl experiences various "erotic horror" episodes, from each of which she wakes, they are just dreams - or are they? Basically this is Franco's umpteenth variation of the "Eugenie Journey into Perversion" film with the plot reduced to almost nothing.
The DVD transfer here is mediocre as are the source reels used. In fact the film appears to be a composite of footage from different versions (perhaps with the laudable aim of getting as complete a version as possible). This inferior (though watchable) DVD quality is a shame because the film comes from Franco's best period, with a cast featuring most of the Franco favourites, plus a Bruno Nicolai score. Best of all, the entire film consists of the loose funny surreal scenes Franco fans guiltily adore. Parts of the film, especially towards the end, really are quite poetic and - shock! - quite technically accomplished. As a film I'd say Virgin has a similar warped appeal to Succubus, both Eugenies, Vampyre Lesbos or Ecstasy, so if you are a fan of Jess Franco's vintage stuff then it's worth getting, but could someone find and restore an original print?
