THE CULT: FASCINATION (Un film de JEAN ROLLIN)
It’s pretty much impossible to try to write about a Jean Rollin film, they are much better suited to explain themselves. The king of erotic-horror (and lesbian vampires), Rollin’s films are often bad, sometimes un-watchable, but always visually stunning. These art films recall the look of other European “horror” films of the era but remain, ques cu sa?, resoundingly French. With soft-core porn stars as actresses and plenty of nudity, Fascination (aka Les Frisson des Vampires) is tells the story of a thief who seeks refuge in a castle owned by two seductive women (Eva and Elizabeth) who just happen to be part of an aristocratic vampire cult. Without a doubt, Fascination is one of Rollin’s dreamy and seductive best.
