International screen icon Delphine Seyrig stars as Elizabeth Bathory, an ageless Countess with a beautiful young 'companion' (Goth goddess Andrea Rau) and a legendary legacy of perversion. But when the two women seduce a troubled newlywed couple (French beauty Danielle Ouimet and John Karlen), they unleash a frenzy of sudden violence and depraved desire that shocked both art house audiences and grindhouse crowds worldwide. Co-written and directed by Harry Kumel, DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS remains one of the most exquisitely mesmerizing adult horror films ever made. Blue Underground is proud to present the uncensored Director's Cut of this classic psychosexual shocker in luscious High Definition and packed with revealing Extras!

This is a quite beautiful film, each act of which seems like a moving painting seperated by a red curtain. It takes a very languid approach in telling its story, but to be honest who cares with the stunning imagery on display. The films story is relatively simple, but still manages to create quite a mystery, through its implicit rather than explicit exploration of the vampire mythos. Its also a very sensuous, erotic film, though once again not explicitly so. The performances are all good, but its Seyrig as Bathory who really excels, a mixture of sly cunning and deadly charm.
An excellent film, and an excellent release from Blue Underground. 5 out of 5
Perhaps the oddest thing is to find John Karlen (Mr Lacey in Cagney & Lacey!) as a decadent English aristo! but why he should get higher billing than the stupendous Delphine Seyrig is beyond me. Indeed both Goth Lesbian icon Andrea Rau and Danielle Ouimet have a much surer grasp of film's style than Mr Karlen.
The slow ratchetting of tension is handled expertly by Harry Kumel, whose commentary on this DVD is a revealing insight into the films dynamics.
The term 'Classic' is overused but in this case it is justified.
The film will be too tame for fans of the "1001 ways to slice and dice an oversexed American teenager" genre, and would probably be best regarded as more of a thriller in this day and age, but for afficionadoes of European horror the film is definitely a must.
