Jean Rollin 1938 – 2010

I was sad to learn that prolific French erotic-horror film-maker Jean Rollin died on December 15th after a long illness.

The few films I’ve seen of his were pleasingly stylish as well as lurid, and “Fascination” summed it all up for me. Set in a beautifully-shot French castle, it features period costume, theatrical dialogue and a cast of blood-drinking lesbian killers.

The image of a semi-naked Brigitte Lahaie, stalking a victim across the castle moat with a scythe is one that refuses to be forgotten.

RIP Jean. May your heaven be full of nudey vampire girls.
