Description: The infamous Jess Franco, whose output at the time of writing totaled close to 200 movies, evidently still had aspirations as a serious filmmaker when he made this period drama to cash in on the success of Witch Finder General, but he wasn’t beyond inserting frequent episodes of soft-porn – of which he apparently neglected to inform his star, Christopher Lee until after shooting was complete. The result is a curious mash-up of history lesson and sleaze that fails to satisfy on either level.
