Starring: Franca Maï, Brigitte Lahaie, Jean-Marie Lemaire

The most “lucid” of the Rollin oeuvre, Fascination is blunt, beautiful, and blood-thirsty.

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 (read: 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 is about two seductive women who are part of an aristocratic vampire cult. Without a doubt, Fascination is one of Rollin’s dreamy best.
