Daughters of Darkness (Special Edition) (1971)
Le Rouge aux Levres is a stylish, fascinating, very erotic vampire film based on Sheridan le Fanu's Camilla, the classic tale of a lesbian vampire. A young married couple, Stefan (John Karlen) and Valerie (Daniele Ouimet), honeymoon at a deserted oceanside resort where they meet Countess Elisabeth Bathory (Delphine Seyrig) and her companion Ilona (Andrea Rau). Valerie has discovered that Stefan is a brutal sexual sadist and is drawn to the Countess because of her warmth and sensuality. Ilona attempts to seduce Stefan but is accidentally killed, and the Countess takes her revenge on his wife. Director Harry Kumel directs with stunning visual style and maintains the erotic intensity and tension between the characters with skill, getting a particularly good performance from the magnificent Delphine Seyrig, who resembles in both mood and looks the young Marlene Dietrich. Erotic, unusual and extremely violent, Le Rouge aux Levres, also released as Daughters of Darkness is one of the finest vampire films ever produced, making up with style and class what it might have lacked in budget. ~ Linda Rasmussen, All Movie Guide

Not so Fast Horny Fans of Lesbo Vampire Flicks... by MOkum October 31, 2007 - 2:39 AM PDT

If this movie did not contain some very beautiful woman in some okay nude scenes I would give it a ZERO. It really sucked! And not in the good old seductive vampire way. For what little plot there is the actors do a terrible job and the direction is inert and makes the film drag on and on from one half-hearted, badly written cliche to next. That's not even to mention the fact that the cool locations that remind one of the Shining before that was even made are wasted...there's no suspense, and the special/gore FX are third rate to top it all off the ending is completely laughable...
This ranting run-on sentence in the only kind of tossed of criticism this piece of doggy-do deserves...
Watch Bram Stoker's Dracula instead...
