A beautiful young artist must choose her destiny in this hauntingly sensual tale of love, passion and revenge.... Catherine Bomarzini (Sherilyn Fenn - TWIN PEAKS) returns to the family castle in Italy after her father s death and gets caught up in a mysterious love triangle: a man who is at times repulsive, at others enchanting; and a creature of the night whose gentle eyes and touch reveal his infinite love and devotion. With the help of Martha (Hilary Mason) her faithful childhood nanny and the ghost of a slain young girl, Catherine discovers the mediaeval curse that threatens their lives and only she can dispel.

A female vampire leads a covey of vampire stripper babes. They get their victims from the strip club, one line, and call girls. A midget Van Helsing, who knows the ins and outs of this particular blood line, is after them. One of the vampires has a human bf that she doesn't kill. There is also Marvin, a weird foot tall bloody creature who looks like something out of the Puppet Master series. The first kill involves a real classy guy who takes his reluctant girl friend to a strip joint and gets her a lap dance. The movie is so corny it is funny. A good one to watch stoned. Not much horror.
Hardcore porn star Harmony Rose provides the nudity in a weird scene with Marvin.
Meridian is a less campy film about a woman who has a large chest falls in love with Italy's Bigfoot, a beauty and the beast type of thing. I enjoyed both films for different reasons.
When the restorer visits her friend at the castle, they invite the players of a travelling sideshow to dinner, and are slipped drugs, leading to an orgy of abandon.
The woman who owns the castle keeps having visions of a young woman who has been stabbed.
After talking to her nanny, she finds that the "vision" woman is her father's sister, who was murdered brutally as the consequence of a 15th Century curse put on her family, and that she is the next in line, and the troupe they have entertained is a part of the curse....
So the film looks good, very good in one scene, but when it has something like that so early on in the film, where do you go from there?
Well according to this film, nowhere, just keep shooting the scenery, put a ghost and a beast in the film, and chuck in the old beauty and the beast film.
It doesn't work one bit, it's uncomfortable to sit through, and becomes a chore very quickly.
Boring and drab.

Director Charles Band (the Puppet Master, Subspecies, Ghoulies and Trancers franchises) in this more seriously approached, surprisingly good Full Moon romantic fantasy-horror release.
Two attractive American women find themselves in Italy after graduating from art school. Gina (Charlie Spradling; Bad Channels, Puppet Master II, The Blob) is working in art restoration and her friend Catherine (Sherilyn Fenn; Boxing Helena, The Wraith) has just inherited a castle. The castle comes with a curse about some wizard who built the castle and cursed people by turning them to stone--and there are loads of statues.
After enjoying a traveling carnival attraction complete with a dwarf (Phil Fondacaro; Troll, Ghoulies II, The Creeps), strong man, snake charmer, fire eater, belly dancer, magician and other carney weirdoes. Looking for some interesting company, Gina and Catherine invite the performers to dinner, after which they are drugged and sensually "taken" by the magician. But the strange thing is--because, no, we haven't hit the strange part yet--the magician has a twin brother whose werewolf roots become most evident in coitus.
The next morning the girls have little recollection of what events transpired and Catherine's nanny (Hilary Mason; Dolls, Don't Look Now, Robot Jox) is left to clean up the mess. Later Catherine is plagued by visions of a murdered young woman. The nanny reveals that the "vision" is linked to the castle's curse, Gina's recent work on a painting is connected to it, and that Catherine is the next!
The effects and action are the primary weak points of this film. The transformation scenes are mostly reduced to frame shifts between human and werewolf form (i.e., there is not much of an on camera "transformation" at all), the werewolf make-up is unimpressive, the limited action is implied more than really being delivered, and there are no scares. But "horror" wasn't really the point of this film, implied violence was all that was necessary for the story to be effective, and the lack of scares was intentional and not a product of shoddy direction. This is more of a romantic fantasy story crafted by a horrorsmith using some horror elements.
This film revealed that Charles Band is capable of so much more than his campy, gory horror. The sexuality of the magician and his twin tender a strong dichotomy. The magician is cruel, manipulative and lustful whereas his werewolf twin is gentle, protective and passionate. The werewolf offers a more Beauty and the Beast sense of fantasy.
This was surprisingly good! Really.
