In her wedding night, her husband (Julien Boisselier), a demon, as it has turned out, tried to sacrifice her - but was met with an axe himself. Since then, Mallory (Olivia Bonamy) has gone on a quest to defeat & kill all demons.

With her are inspector Durand (Thierry Perkins-Lyautey), transvestite explosives expert Vena Cava (Jeffrey Ribier), & the mute telepath Talking Tina (Thylda Bahrès). But at their latest assignement, in a nunnery no less, their ranks are seriously decimated when Durand is killed & Tina has fallen into a coma & transferred her soul into a bat.

Now Mallory wants revenge on the demons who did this, & it's kind of a lucky coincidence that right about the same time the pope Hieronymus I (Laurent Spielvogel) is abducted by a bunch of demons who might have been the same ones that had attacked Mallory's crew ... & Mallory, the only specialist on this field, gets the job to find the pope.

Her first trail leads Mallory to a small village that has vanished into the dark side, & where she indeed finds father Carras (Adriá Collado), one of the popes bodyguards, who soon joins her, Vena Cava & Talking Tina - who has since given up her bat body & transferred her soul into a bald & fat gas-station attendant - in searching the pope, but they almost lose themselves in the mazelike catacombs under the village ... until, rather by accident they find a secret entry into the pope's prison. But the pope seems to be happy just bitching about, insulting transvestite Vena Cava like nobody's business & - almost intentionally - leading his saviours from one trap into the next.

Soon, Mallory, Vena Cava & Father Carras are all made captive by the local demons, who are - surprise, surprise - led by the pope himself, who turns out to be not a holy man at all but the fallen angel Abbadon, & he is helped by vampire lady Valentine (Valentina Vargas) & succubus Morphine (Sophie Tellier), & Morphine soon prepares to cross over into the real world in Mallory's guise, to kill the comatose Talking Tina, to remove the last obstacle in the way of Abbandon's taking over the world.

... but Tina is still free, & she manages to reach her comatose body before Morphine does & turns the tables on her, while the chained up Mallory receives help from an unlikely source ... he dead hubby has come back to free her so she can save the world ... which she of course does after Valentine - disappointed by the fact that Abbadon wants to erase all humanity & thus leave no food for the vampires - discloses to her the secrets of Abbadon's protective shielding, & so our heroine can defeat him mano a mano ...


A rather typical horror actioner, as was en vogue in the early 2000's, strong on action & explosions but weak on spooks & terror. At least though, Bloody Mallory acknowledges its Gothic sources & puts a hint of irony into its tried-&-true story. On the other hand though, despite flashy editing & camerawork one can'T help but notice that much of the martial arts are rather poorly done, & lead actress Olivia Bonamy just dopesn't have the presence to portray a tough-as-nails demon hunter - even though she seems to be quite at ease with the more ironic elements of the film. That she wears a kinky outfit closely resembling that of oh so many other tough-as-nails demon fighters of then contemporary videogames/films like Lara Croft - Tomb Raider & Resident Evil doesn't help either (though in all fairness, the outfit doesn't look too bad on her).
