Plot From IMDB
This is the first feature film by the recently deceased Spanish master of macabre morbidity, José Ramón Larraz, whose initial releases arrived in theaters credited to J.R. Larrath to dodge the “stigma” of looking European. In fact, it was made by the Spanish director in Denmark with a partly Danish, partly British cast and crew.
The story concerns a British fashion model (Vivian Neves) who is lured to a remote estate by a wealthy dowager (Pia Anderson) to do private modelling for her camera-obsessed nephew (Larraz favorite Karl Lanchbury). Once she gets there, she finds herself attracted to the young man but confused by the morbid atmosphere of the country house, with its dolls-nailed-to-the-wall decor and creepy dark rooms, not to mention the relatives’ ease at entertaining their guest with games of strip poker. Before you know it, the nephew is taking photos of Auntie and the cover girl screwing, and it all builds to a shattering, sudden finale whose tone and setting looks forward to Wes Craven’s “The Last House on the Left.”
