Ladies of the Night: Les Vampyres:
Night is falling. A frightened Schoolgirl makes her way along the deserted cobbled street, glancing fearfully around her. She is being pursued, but by whom--or what? Swept away, she awakens in an eerie, candlelit mansion. Her captors, the mysterious Ladies of the Night. Ageless and deadly, they examine their newest plaything. Teasing, tormenting, seducing, they toy with their young victim. As her alarm subsides, she submits to their dark, haunting beauty more and more eagerly. Led to the underground Torture Chamber, flogged, paddled, and caned, she is driven to the brink of absolute surrender. With the approach of dawn, her torture intensifies, and the Vampires at last taste her Virgin blood. Like an exotic, long lost silent movie re-discovered, it's sheer sensuality and beauty will astound you. This stunning work is truly a landmark in the world of fetish film.
Let the Punishment Fit the Child:
Two women are bonded by strange rituals. They might be "mother and "daughter," or two lovers playing games of domination, submission, voyeurism and cruel tenderness, but does it matter? The weightlessness of these mute bodies, the strangeness of the camera angles, the seductive perversity of the objects of fetishism (corset, wig, hairbrush, schoolgirl's uniform, quaint shoes, naked dolls, body powder, candles, keyholes) takes us on a surreal journey echoing the sumptuous compositions of Bunuel's, "Un Chien Andalou."
