Join the Castle Dracula Podcast TUESDAY 10:30ET for DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS (1971), the Sexy Belgian Vampire Episode

Join the Castle Dracula Podcast TUESDAY 10:30ET for DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS (1971), the Sexy Belgian Vampire Episode Castle Dracula Podcast Returns Tuesday Night (11/22) at 10:30ET with one of the sexiest vampire classics ever: DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS.
And this time I've put up a link so you can watch the movie beforehand.

Daughters of Darkness (1971) is one of the greats in vampire cinema-- a pair of newlyweds check into a gloomy seaside resort and ignite a friendship with a mysterious, elegant woman named after the "Blood Countess" Elisabeth Bathory, and her quiet secretary. But soon Elisabeth has designs on both of the newlyweds, and the young couple are drawn into a web of seduction, murder and immortality. It is all style and blood. Outstanding euro-horror, though definitely NSFW. That's why this won't be posted on the Alex Van Helsing page.

Here's what Camille Paglia said about Daughters of Darkness:
"A classy genre of vampire film follows a style I call psychological high Gothic. It begins in Coleridge's medieval Christabel and its descendants, Poe's Ligeia and James's The Turn of the Screw. A good example is Daughters of Darkness, starring Delphine Seyrig as an elegant lesbian vampire. High gothic is abstract and ceremonious. Evil has become world-weary, hierarchical glamour. There is no bestiality. The theme is eroticized western power, the burden of history."[1]
We'll do our review and discussion LIVE on Tuesday night at 10:30ET -- join us if you like-- and after that you can hear it:



But this time we have a special treat-- you can watch the movie in advance at Google Video-- right here!
