The first and only film in which Peter Cushing portrayed a vampire is also the most unapologetically bizarre movie of his entire career. When horror’s biggest star (Cushing) announces his retirement from the genre, two dimwit screenwriters and a pair of sexy actresses are dispatched to the actor’s castle for a lavish farce d’horreur érotique of violence, whippings, orgies, tender romance and a devilishly dignified performance by Cushing, even while spanking the bare bottom of French starlet Miou-Miou. Alida Valli (Suspiria) and Bernard Menez (Dracula and Son) co-star in the sole feature film directed by award-winning producer Pierre Grunstein, now restored by Pathé, scanned in 2K from the original Paris vault negative and authorized by the director.
