A group of vampires and satanic worshippers led by Count Sinistre seek fresh victims in a small town in Brittany inhabited by gypsies. Baxter is on holiday with a group of friends in the town. Count Sinistre returns to terrorise the townspeople on All Soul's Night, and murders three of Baxter's friends. Baxter, initially sceptical of the supernatural nature of the town, becomes suspicious and returns to England with a talisman belonging to Sinistre taken from the scene of one of the murders. Sinistre pursues Baxter in an attempt to recover the talisman and murders Baxter's acquaintances along the way.



Author and film critic Leonard Maltin awarded the film two out of four stars, calling it "Intelligent, with great use of color, but flat, slow, and ultimately trivial."[3]
