Product Description:

Dr. Zimmer (Antonio Escribano) invents a mind control machine, and then dies from a heart attack after being insulted at a medical conference. His beautiful but deadly daughter, Irma (Mabel Karr), seeks revenge on the officials who stressed him out. At a club she sees the act of "Miss Death" (Estella Blain), a beautiful woman in a sheer body stocking whose act consists of seducing a mannequin in the center of a spider web. Inspired, Irma fakes her own death, performs plastic surgery on herself, kidnaps Miss Death, controls her mind via her father's machine, and then sends her out to seduce and slash her enemies with poison fingernails. Miss Death's boyfriend Phillip (Fernando Montes) and a sleepy police inspector try to find her before she kills again.
Director Jess Franco fills this wonderfully kinky Euro-horror gem with all sort of crazy angles, inspired dolly shots, and shadow-rich lighting. The sublimely avante garde music score is by Daniel White, who also appears in the film as the police chief's assistant (Franco plays the chief). It's even well dubbed. For anyone interested in classic European sex-horror cinema, this is essential viewing.
