LIVE+SOUND+CINEMA goes back for more Jean Rollin with Requiem for a Vampire with a live original score by GUIZOT.
What would a Jean Rollin film be without girls, graveyards, and vampires? In Requiem for a Vampire (aka Caged Virgins) two young women – all mini-skirts and knee-high socks, killing men in clown masks – find their way into an atmospheric castle of vampiric delights. Conflict arrives when one of the girls one of the girls decides to lose her virginity while the other preserves hers and joins the ranks of the undead. With its moody visuals and softcore sex, Requiem for a Vampire is a coming of age story of friendship told Rollin-style. Amusez-vous.
Guizot: Clifton Hyde (Guitars, Mandolin, & Composer), Chris Komer (French Horn), Grant Zubritsky (Bass), and Rich Stein (Percussion).
