Jean Rollin returns to his favorite subject (nubile vampires) in this tedious entry in the horror genre.
Two eternally reborn vampire girls who are blind during the day but see in blue at night (!) pose as orphans, try to recall their past lives, and ponder the meaning of their existence. It's slow, cheap, badly dubbed, and the blue vampire-vision filters get old, true, but there is an almost endearing strangeness and obsessiveness to the concept; unfortunately, it goes on too long and wears out its welcome.
Jean Rollin is a genius. There will be a revolution in cinema and Rollin will be acknowledged as its father. For now, his films get badly dubbed and carelessly transferred to DVD to be sold with stupid, tacky covers and laughed at. They laughed at Henri Rousseau in his lifetime, too. This one is the least of his films and suffers from a bad score. Still far better than anything else that came out in 1997.
Awful script and very little in way of a story. The two little orphans don't make very good vampires - resorting to a knife in the back rather than their fangs at one point. The orphanage is full of overage 'girls' running around in pigtails and short skirts, definitely for the benefit of the director, male viewers and lesbians but only die-hard vamp fans would bother sitting through this overlong film, and one viewing is more than enough. Most annoying of all is their tendency to talk about themselves in the third person. Thankfully one bullet will see them off.
