Product Description

Lips of Blood is one of director Jean Rollin s more acclaimed and sought after vampire films. In this delirious art-horror film, Rollin successfully mixes elements of fairy-tale surrealism with unabashed exploitation images of naked female vampires.

The film tells the story of a man haunted by visions of predatory vampyric women, who he finds he has a strange connection too.

Rollin s ambitious film has become a cult classic due to is macabre gothic settings and beautiful, poetic imagery. Erotic and poignant in equal measures and laden with extras; if you only ever buy one Jean Rollin film then Lips of Blood should be it.

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.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
LIPS OF BLOOD opens w/ two men carrying a body into the crypt of a castle. The scene switches to a party, where a man becomes obsessed w/ a picture of a crumbling castle. The picture triggers memories of a beautiful woman from the man's childhood, driving him to track down the ruins. Of course, this is a Jean Rollin film, so the man encounters two stunning, naked women at the very beginning of his quest. Soon after, he begins seeing the woman from his childhood (she hasn't aged a bit), and follows her into a cemetery. Is she real? A ghost? He discovers a secret passage in a vault, and enters into the crypt from the movie's beginning! This is when things start getting weird! Coffins open, revealing giant bats (flying foxes), and a gaggle of blazing-hot vampire babes! A man is attacked in the cemetery and relieved of his blood. Meanwhile, our hero is led into the dark streets by a woman in face-paint. Need I say more? As w/ most Rollin films, by this point, you're either in or out. The rest is a surreal adventure of vampirism, a terrible family secret, and undying love. We are taken to the aquarium, then into the subway system, and into the fountains, as the man seeks answers, and is chased by a mysterious hit-man. The man's mum is convinced that he's insane, and has him taken to a mental institution. Will he ever find what he's looking for? If you enjoy Rollin, or films that are different, or a little bizarre, then LIPS OF BLOOD will quench your thirst...
