In the cheesiest tag line ever, the posters screamed "Satan is coming!"

Although I used to hate this movie, I've grown fonder of it over the years. The story isn't half bad. Damon plays an 18th century scholar who believes he's found the ring of the Nibelungen, which holds great power, conveniently located at Castle Dracula. His gambling twin brothers takes off before him, and naturally finds a countess who invites him to dine. Later that night, the more scholarly of the brothers arrives. Coincidently, it's the Night of the Virgin Moon, a night that falls every fifty years and draws five virgins from the surrounding village to the castle not be heard from again. Our hero sets out to protect his brother, find the ring, and rescue any of the women, who naturally disrobe for the festivities.

Better than much of the so-called "erotic horror" being produced today, the film was out of print for years, with bootleg copies sold on eBay, until people finally realized it was in the public domain and began distributing it everywhere. Director Batzella made a much more satisfying film with "Nude for Satan." Fans of that film should not pass this one up.
