Customer Reviews

Horrible, couldn't get through first fifteen minutes....
DCL
This has a lot of what got me into Rollin the first place, LOTS of good scenes with ample amounts of blood and nudity.
Jason A.
There's a surprise after these scenes that I won't spoil for you except to say it's a bit silly.

I've just begun to explore the Euro-horror genre, with Lips of Blood being one of the best so far. Interesting visuals (including attractive semi-nude female vampires), effectively somber mood and pacing, and a strong element of mystery, all serve to make this Rollin film worth seeing. However, if you are really into lots of gore and sex in horror films, this is one to skip.

-The quote is from the film...
LIPS OF BLOOD (1974) is Jean Rollin's best film.
Like Jess Franco, Rollin is a flawed genius. In the films of these two unusual directors, we see infrequent flashes of brilliance mixed with mediocrity. In this particular film, the flashes of brilliance win out over the lesser powers.
The cinematography is very good. The haunting Paris night scenes (both in cemeteries and in dilapidated urban areas) are particularly effective.
Rollin's screenplay is also good: a strange admixture of a psychoanalytic probing into the lost memories of a rather pathetic and emotionally numb man (who lives with his mother) with the bizarre element of the secret of vampirism as it has impacted upon his early life.
There is an excellent segment of the film (reminiscent of NIGHT OF THE HUNTED) in which the rather disturbed mother has her son abducted and taken to a private mental hosptial for electroshock "therapy" rather than uncover his family's true history.
Interesting original score.
The DVD does not offer any extras (apart from a gallery of stills and a filmography of Rollin); this shortcoming is offset by the excellent transfer of the original print of the film. Very fine detail and rich colour.

Format: DVD
Jean Rollin is a name instantly recognizable to hardcore horror fans, yet meaningless to nearly everyone else. This ignorance is quite unfortunate because the French director concocted some of the sleaziest, most unusual films ever made during the 1970s and 1980s, films usually imbued with a disturbing mix of hypereroticism and bloody violence. I have often tossed Rollin's name around in impolite company with seeming aplomb even though I had never seen even one of the man's films. You read enough plot synopses about someone and you start to feel as though you know every intimate detail about their work. What I did hear from others about this director oftentimes did not bode well. He is apparently well versed in schlock filmmaking, which in and of itself is not a problem with me, a true lover of bad cinema, but several of his films continue to draw raves from a selected minority of genre fans. Well, I finally sat down with a Jean Rollin film, his 1979 effort "Fascination," and was pleasantly surprised with the results. As I viewed the film with a growing sense of intrigue, I began mentally composing a list of other films from this director that I should watch in the near future. After watching the phenomenal "Living Dead Girl," I finally stumbled over one of the man's lesser efforts.
"Lips of Blood" introduces us to Frederic, an urbane French guy who looks a lot like a young Richard Wright from Pink Floyd. At a party overflowing with Eurotrash, a small poster depicting a heap of ruins out in the countryside happens to catch his attention. As he stares at the picture, he flashes back to an unusual experience he had at the age of twelve.

Redemption has released the definitive version of Rollin's most haunting film of his repetoire. The Image Entertainment release of many years back had scratches and soundtrack noise. Not this one. Never has there been a more haunting vampire tale filmed than this gem. If you are looking for a fast moving gore fest, look elsewhere. Watch this artistic genius wave his 1970's brush across your high def monitor and make you yearn for surrealistic filmmaking such as this. Nobody does it better.

Lips of Blood is the story of one ugly (I'm talking Masculine Medusa) man searching a suddenly nightmarish world (inhabited by vampires and their sadistic hunters) for the mysterious woman he met, and fell in love with, as a young boy. There are some truly gorgeous moments in this (a dead photographer sprawled out in an aquarium display is a masterpiece of stylized blocking) and some that are just plain weird (a naked vampire shouting nonsense at the edge of a cliff). Recommended for those who like horror surreal and moody. Those who want action and/or plot are better off looking elsewhere.

This is one of Jean Rollin's soft-porn vampire films -- which I found enjoyable. The plot doesn't make a lot of sense, but Rollin isn't big on coherent plots. I'm a great film fan but I didn't know about Rollin until I saw an article on his work in the New York Times
[...]
The Redemption transfers of his work to DVD are very well done.

12 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Bartok Kinski on August 4, 2008
Format: DVD
This run-of-the-mill slice of 70's exploitation declares its style early on when one of the female leads comes down the stairs stark naked saying "Now where did I leave my skirt?" Nudity in abundance is the purport and it sets out to deliver, ensuring that skin is amply displayed as the loopy gothic plot unspools.

It's locked solidly into the style of the genre. The acting is oppressive, the special effects consist mainly of blood capsules, and the plot is a contrivance to hang the nudity on.

It's of passing interest that the cast includes some losers of French X-rated movies in supporting roles.
