Denis' film, in which Dalle and Gallo are cast as sexual cannibals of the dark (the aftermath of some dubious research working in Africa), incorporates numerous genre elements - vampire, beast of science, lycanthropy. The filmmaker is here blending various horror genres to find the first principle from which they function. But while Dalle is excellent as a woman who's given herself over to the dark side of her pleasures, Gallo is less convincing. Subsequently, there isn't much tension nor rationale here, merely many a gore moment where horror's own id is given a free rein.
