Belladonna of Sadness (1973) cult adult animation

A peasant woman is banished from her village and makes a deal with the devil to gain magical powers. **Blessed–and at the same time cursed–with the precious but fatal gift of beauty, the young peasant, Jeanne, falls in love with the beautiful villager, Jean, in late-1800s France. However, as the village’s foul feudal lord exercises the “Droit du Seigneur” or the “Right of the First Night” on the couple’s wedding night, a desperate plunge to a world of disturbing hallucinations will eventually lead Jeanne to a damned Faustian bargain with the Prince of Darkness. Thirsting for power and a sweet retribution, Jeanne will gradually transform into an omnipotent and destructive vessel of seduction, as her newly-acquired powers go hand in hand with the blackest of witchcraft. Is there a limit to Jeanne’s hatred?
