International screen icon Delphine Seyrig (LAST YEAR AT MARIEN BAD) 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 Daniella Ouimet and John Karlaen of Dark Shadows and Cagney & Lacey),they unleash a frenzy of sudden violence and depraved desire that shocked both art house audiences and grindhouse crowds worldwide.
Many believe this vwey adult film and story is based on the real historical Elizabeth Bathory. Look it up.
Co-written and directed by Harry Kumel, DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS remains one the most exquisitely mesmerizing adult horror films ever made. Blue Underground’s beautiful transfer of the uncensored Director’s cut of this classic psychosexual shocker in a breathtaking new 4K 16-bit scan from the long thought lost of the original 35mm camera negative with Dolby Vision HDR and a new Dolby Atmosaudio mix.
