Jean Rollin's Requiem for a Vampire
Kino Lorber is bundling four of French filmmaker’s Jean Rollin sexy vampire flicks together in the inevitably entitled box set Jean Rollin: The Vampire Films.
As the constraints of censorship began to see in the late 1960′s and early ’70′s, visionary French filmmaker Rollin created a series of mesmerizing horror-thrillers that injected the Gothic vampire film with a more contemporary strain of eroticism. (He took what Hammer had done in the previous decade and turned it up a kinkily erotic notch.) Fluctuating between visual allure and shocking violence, Rollin’s films have come to be recognized as vital entries in the vampire genre.
The four films—The Rape of the Vampire (1968), The Nude Vampire (1970), The Shiver of the Vampires (1971) and Requiem for a Vampire (1973)—are mastered in HD from the original 35mm negatives.
