When his new bride's face is hideously disfigured in a fire, Frederic Lansac, a famous society painter, is determined to restore her beauty. He seeks out a notorious plastic surgeon that is on the run from the authorities. Using Lansac's remote castle as a base, the two of them hunt down and imprison a series of young girls. Their skin is to be used in a serious of experiments aimed at restoring the face of Lansac's wife.

The Blood Rose was widely touted as one of the first films to mix sex and horror. Its director went on to make some of the most famous French erotic movies of all time. Here, with a cast of France’s most beautiful young actresses and genre veteran Howard Vernon (Seven Women for Satan), he weaves a dark and disturbing tale that is one of the most sought after rarities for the Euro horror fan.
