Tony Dayoub

It's an odd film for sure, with Dorléac serving as the pixieishly sexual bridge between thuggish, aggressively hetero Stander and meek, androgynous Pleasence. The surreal creep factor is contributed by its old castle setting.

But from here, all these many years later, there is another layer of disquiet brought on by Dorléac, who died so young and bears such a strong resemblance to Roman's other leading ladies, her sister Catherine and his late, lamented wife Sharon.
