“Daughters of Darkness” 50th Anniversary 4K restoration Arrives On Disc This Month

Monday, October 5, 2020 | News

“One of the most elegant horror pictures ever made… An ultra-sophisticated, utterly daring triumph of style and mood.” – Kevin Thomas, LA Times

International screen icon Delphine Seyrig (Last Year At Marienbad) stars as Elizabeth Bathory, an ageless Countess with a beautiful young ‘companion’ (Goth goddess Andrea Rau) and a legendary legacy of perversion. But when the two women seduce a troubled newlywed couple (Canadian beauty Danielle Ouimet and John Karlen of Dark Shadows ), they unleash a frenzy of sudden violence and depraved desire that shocked both art-house audiences and grindhouse crowds worldwide.

Co-written and directed by Harry Kümel, DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS remains one of the most exquisitely mesmerizing adult horror films ever made.
