Perhaps the quintessential cult vampire movie (and the most dazzling take on Countess Elizabeth Bathory on film), Daughters of Darkness pits four dysfunctional people against each other in a desolate winter resort. Newlyweds Stefan and Valerie stop in Belgium during their honeymoon but there’s problems brewing: Stefan is embarrassed by the inferior bloodline of his new wife and doesn’t want to introduce him to his mother (in truly creepy and odd aside). Meanwhile, young female virgins are being found dead left-and-right because the stunning vampire Elizabeth (the breathy Delphine Seyrig) and her sexy protégé Ilona have come into town and their desires must be met.
