The confrontation scene between the scythe wielding Lahaie and the female thief is very stylish and effective! In fact, Lahaie does very well in this movie, far above and beyond her awful turn in Night of the Hunted. I hated her in Night of the Hunted, loved her in this.
A couple of down notes though, about the DVD. The quality of the transfer is not very good, with marks and splotches flying by in several scenes. Also, this isn't the DVD makers fault, but the theatrical trailer has several scenes which were really not in the film. I mean they were all scenes that were in the flim, but they were shot differently for the trailer. It seems Rollin used different takes for the trailer. Weird.
Overall, the movie gets 5 stars, while the DVD quality would get only aobut 3 1/2.
This film is scarier, wittier, more suspenseful, more original and more entertaining than any horror film I've seen released in the past 10 years. They simply don't make them like they use to, and probably never will.
"Fascination," set in rural France sometime in the early twentieth century, is a story about vampires. Initially, this plot did not interest me. Vampire films have been done to death over the years, and I rarely express any interest in this popular mainstream staple. I plunged ahead anyway. A gang of criminals roams the countryside, waylaying and robbing hapless travelers who happen to pass by. Simultaneously, at a nearby castle, a group of women who regularly drink blood in order to stay young plan a very special nocturnal gathering.Read more ›
The story takes place in 1905, and it opens in a slaughter house, where we meet some society ladies drinking ox blood, which was apparently used to cure anemia at the time. We then fast-forward and meet Mark (Jean-Marie Lemaire), an unscrupulous bandit that steals the loot from a robbery from his partners. They, of course, are not happy and go after him all the way to the forest. However, they have to stop, because Mark finds refuge in a castle, and they decide to wait for him outside - sooner or later he has to come out. Inside the castle, Mark meets two attractive young ladies, Elizabeth (Franca Mai) and Eva (Brigitte Lahaie), who don't offer much resistance. In fact, one of them tells Mark, "I offer you my virginity in return for my life." Of course, that's an offer that Mark can't refuse.Read more ›

Of all the Jean Rollin films this one at least has some production values. A grade B horror flick at best, but well made.Published 15 months ago by James Aker
