Majestic erotic horror, 9 August 2007
Author: t-birkhead from United Kingdom

It took me a while to check this one out, I had previously avoided any Jean Rollin films, cause they just didn't sound interesting and a lot of reviewers seemed to confirm this assumption. When I finally saw this, with a bottle of cheap French wine to keep me interested, I was hooked within two minutes. The opening scene is classic and the film delivers many memorable scenes from start to finish. Plot and characterisation don't take up much time in the film, its more of a work of art than a conventional vampire tale. There isn't even all that much bloodletting, just enough to stop things being anaemic. In place of gore there's some fine eroticism and stunning visuals and its a fair trade. The image of Brigitte Lahaie on a causeway with a scythe sums the film up for me, a picture of captivating erotic menace with something innately classy about it. Lesbian vampirism may not seem like a classy subject, but Rollin handles it with in a very stylish European way, no cheap lame soft core here. The visuals are composed with a painterly eye and Rollin brings out the full aesthetic potential of the characters, their clothes and the setting. He really is an artist, an underrated, often surreal visionary and anyone the least bit interested in European horror should check this out, especially since its one of the most appreciated ones. Go check it out, it ain't likely to disappoint
