Plot Summary:
One of the most provocative films of writer/director Jess Franco’s career has been virtually impossible to experience in its complete and uncut form…until now: Lina Romay is at her most explicitly seductive as an exotic dancer whose body is inhabited by a being from another dimension to explore desire, depravity and death, while Uncle Jess himself portrays a wheelchair-bound psychic obsessed with the paranormal. Shot on location in the seaside resort of La Grande Motte, Evelyne Scott (DEVIL’S KISS), Monica Swinn (BARBED WIRE DOLLS) and Olivier Mathot (THE SADIST OF NOTRE DAME) co-star in this 1975 Eurociné production – previously available only in a shortened French version or as a censor-fogged Japanese bootleg – now scanned from the original negative for the first time ever anywhere.

"This was pretty outlandish and had plenty of “action” scenes to make it a bit more memorable than your average Franco quickie." -

"A new kind of cinema adventure... One of Franco's most imaginative and daring experiments, a grim spiral into seduction, mind control and death.” - I’m In A Jess Franco State Of Mind

"A wild, capricious work... It twists desire and illusion into beguiling new forms, and is among the most potent drafts in Franco's cine-apothecary.” - The Guardian
