Been looking forward to this day. A whole day dedicated to one of my favorite, very underrated horror directors of all time.JEAN ROLLIN THROUGH THE DECADES!THE RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE (1968, Blu-ray). Also streaming on YouTube>streaming on YouTube.Wish Rollin had done more B&W films.ORShrink man-splains. Coven of vampires disagrees... strongly.
Jean Rollin's THE IRON ROSE (1973, Blu-ray). Also streaming on YouTube.Cemetery lockdown drives horny young couple insane.OR My favorite Rollin. Moody, atmospheric, goofy, unforgettable.
My favorite Rollin is Lips of Blood. It has been a while since I watched The Iron Rose or Fascination, the ones that come closest to it. Both need a re-watch.
If your local library is subscribed to KANOPY (a free online streaming subscription service for educational institutions) most of Rollin's filmography can be streamed free of charge. 😃👍 What does education have to do with naked vampire chicks l don't know, but l approve. ✌️😁
Jean Rollin's THE GRAPES OF DEATH (1978, Blu-ray). Also streaming on YouTube.Wine country turns zombie. Chick can't deal.ORExploding trucks! Beheadings! Gunshots! Rollin goes Hollywood.
I saw The Grapes of Death earlier in the month for the first time, maybe the last major Rollin I had not seen. It definitely is a good entry point to his kind of cinema.
It's still laughably cheap for a horror flick, but for Rollin cinema it and "Zombie Lake" feel like "World War Z." 😷🥲
Jean Rollin's ZOMBIE LAKE (1981, PLEX).Worse zombie make-up than '78 "Dawn"? Charming.ORUndead Nazi single father bonds with offspring.ORBusload of topless women skinny dipping? Naturally.
