her in a sleazy nighclub where she was a stripper & had promised her stardom if

in luxury, but stardom never manifested itself, instead she started having
these strange visions & now she thinks she's going insane ...

out though she has killed all the people for real, she shoots herself, &
Paul, who has grown sympathetic to the woman he only intended as his weapon,
wants to give himself up, & when Cynthia wants to prevent him, he stabs her
A mazelike erotic thriller that ever so often borders the incomprehensible,
only then to be revealed to be based on some pulp clichés - which is no rarity
in director Jess Franco's output, who always relished in blending art & pulp
elements. This film however tries a little too hard to stay mysterious for its
own good, in fact to a point where one loses interest.
Franco's favoured directorial trademarks - filming from weird angles,
erratic zoom-ins & zoom-outs - do however go very well with this labyrinth
of a film.
