Here is a contemporary
erotic horror story about an aristocratic woman who inherits her family's
castle in Romania and with it, a werewolf curse. This is the original
UNRATED version (86 minutes) which was cut by the
distributor's for an 'R' Rating before release in the United States. It's
conceptually similar to Pasquale Fanetti's [much] sleazier LYCANTROPUS,
which was also filmed in Romania.
A young woman, Tara
Wexford, returns to the exotic world of her childhood to claim inheritance
after the death of her estranged father. The arrival awakens inner passions
and - as Tara cannot control her desire for physical lust - she begins
to suspect that she's fallen under some kind of mysterious curse. Unlike
the aforementioned LYCANTROPUS, the story
does not drift into slap-in-the-face sleaze. Rather, it more resembles
a Hammer Film with an exorbitant amount of nudity. Suspense is the main
emphasis as the atmosphere is cloaked in foreboding darkness.
This was the first
feature film starring Jenna Bodnar, after being introduced in the cable
TV series Love Street. She certainly makes the most of this
role and - at the time - many critics suggested that she had a promising
future in acting. As it turned out, Ms Bodnar returned to cable TV for
another sexy series (Erotic Confessions, 1995-96)
which was followed by numerous, interchangeable soft-core films, usually
with the words "Sex Files" in the title.
Director Mark Manos
