The cut English VHS by Salvation (BBFC 18) has been compared to the (almost) uncut US DVD by Image/Redemption

Jean Rollin's third vampire movie from 1971 (originally titled Vierges et vampires) impresses with very little dialogues (though this is the case with most of Rollin's vampire movies), as well as the almost complete lack of background music and beautiful takes and two of the most charming actresses in the Rollin-"universe": Marie Pierre Castel & Mireille D'Argent. Both look shamelessly young, almost underaged in the movie. Marie was already 21 years old at the time of shooting, and Mireille just a year younger.
In Great Britain, the movie was only released in a strongly cut version. Even though it shows hardly any violence, the British didn't like the women's abuse in the last third of the movie. The US-DVD contains the movie almost completely uncut, saying there are only a few film tears (close to 10 seconds), which are not mentioned in this report, though.

The US-DVD's total runtime is 87:57 minutes. The missing 72 seconds result from the runtime of the Redemption opening credits, which is found on all of this label's DVDs
Cut version = 76:23 min. (PAL)
Uncut version = 86:45 min. (NTSC)
39:05 In the dungeon: Two vampires grope and kiss the woman in chains. One of them fidgets around with a torch in front of a woman's body.
107,5 sec.

40:18 More scenes in which the vampires abuse the women are missing. Finally you see one of them glide down a woman's body and transform into a bat (the transformation itself is off-screen). It now hangs in the woman's secret parts and "satisfies" her.
