When a thief holes up in a remote chateau, taking two beautiful chambermaids' hostage, the arrival of his accomplices and the chateau's aristocratic owners leads to an orgy of violence and ritualistic bloodletting. Jealousy, vengeance, obsession, cannibalism, and blood-drinking collide in Fascination, director Jean Rollin's decadent fantasy of sex and death.

Set in 1916, it tells the story of a thief who seeks refuge in a castle owned by two women, Eva (Brigitte Lahaie) and Elizabeth (Franca Mai).
