“A spider’s bite is no different than a woman’s!”

A beautiful schoolgirl (Vita) is visiting a creepy painter to be his model of the virgin Mary. After her visitation she gets some sexual nightmarish hallucinations of the painter as a stalking giant spider. She moves to her aunt on the countryside to get away, but the nightmares continues.

A little pearl of a movie from Latvia. It’s a visual stunning, surreal and well made sex-horror flick. The leading lady is so gorgeous I could eat her up. It might get a little bit too much, and too weird sometimes, but as a whole, this movie is a rare and beautiful treat. A treasure to behold! Watch it!
