Newlyweds stop at a deserted hotel where a sinister countess relates the story of her ancestor who found eternal youth by bathing in the blood of 800 virgins. Coincidentally, a blood-drained woman is found murdered in a nearby village.

Qvamp says:

An important but fairly campy lesbian horror film. Unusual in most queer horror films, not only is there the 'strange' relationship between the Countess and her servant, but this movie also contains gay subtext between the newlywed husband and another man.
