Jean Rollin: The Fantastique Collection Part IV
Led by the brand new and exclusive documentary from the mind of EuroCult expert Kat Ellinger, Orchestrator of Storms, welcome to our final volume of horrifying dream-like sauce from the master of conjuring up erotic nightmare fuel, Jean Rollin, The Fantastique Collection Part IV.
The Living Dead Girl features a descent-into-madness performance from Françoise Blanchard that is so intense the crew thought she had genuinely lost her mind, and the fifty-minute film that sees two girls travelling through time and space - Lost In New York - went viral in the 2010s when clips were used in Glams Casino's 'I'm God'.
Two Orphan Vampires and Dracula's Fiancee feature plenty of signature Rollin style and imagery in two films focussing on his favourite subject: sexy bloodsuckers. Two Orphan Vampires tells the tale of sisters who are innocent and blind by day, but bloodthirsty by night, and Dracula's Fiancee features a beautiful bride-to-be protected by a mansion full of strange nuns, The Order of the White Virgins.
Undead Nazi horror, Zombie Lake, sees Rollin filling in last minute for Jess Franco and features a female basketball team versus brain-munchers who have risen from the depths AND FLAMETHROWERS.
