Description: I love LOVE this movie. This is bad/awesome/genius cinema…I admire Amando de Ossorio movies, especially “La Noche del Terror Ciego” and this one.
You have beautiful ladies like Silvia Tortosa and Helga Line (isn´t she a goddess?) in a boarding school with a legendary beast killing in a gory way and with hilarious costume.
That´s when charming pfffff… Tony Kendall makes his appearance…the guy is a decadent playboy who happens to be a hunter, so he´s hired to protect the girls school with his rifle. Then, with a blade…
Lorelei is a female werewolf, who in the guise of an amphibious monster kills people, tearing victims their hearts. Hunter, designed to kill the monster, falls in love with a human incarnation of Lorelei.
Known in the world as well as the “Embrace the siren” and “When the Screaming Stops” Beautiful art-fantasy about Baba fierce beast, a female werewolf, inspired by the popular German mythology. Well beaten example of a myth. Without a doubt, a fascinating sight! “Feast of the spirit” for aesthetes moviegoers. If we talk about the approximate equivalent … That is something “arrhythmic”. A sort of a mixture of “immediacy” Jess Franco (Killer Barbys) and “lyrical” Jean Rollin (Lips of Blood)
