Eurohorror master Jess Franco (Female Vampire, Daughter of Dracula) pays homage to the classic cinema in the revisionist “old dark house” thriller. A vanload of kids are stranded in a hilltop castle and become the unwitting victims of an immortal, sex-crazed countess (Mariangela Giordano) who retains her youth by feeding upon the blood of the young. Hardly the typical “Scooby-Doo” kids, these guests are members of the gore-punk band the Killer Barbies, who prove themselves quite well equipped to battle the horrors that confront them.
