A YouTube Tribute to Jean Rollin
Although it hasn't really been reflected in the posts here (yet!), lately we've been pretty much obsessed with the cinema fantastique of the great French film-maker Jean Rollin. Here is a smattering of trailers and clips of his singular work found on the YouTube for you to peruse. If you haven't yet discovered the odd and mesmerizing world of the "Rollinade", let these vids be your gateway drug. You're warned though, they can be very, very addictive.
(Another Warning: Clips contain nudity!)
La Nuit des traquées (1980)
Lèvres de sang (1975)
Requiem pour un vampire (1971)
