Editorial Reviews

Stylish, futuristically surreal and a departure from director Jean Rollin's familiar vampire territory, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTED is Rollin's contribution the excess of the 1980's horror genre, complete with plenty of sex and gore. In the not-so-distant future, the residents of a skyscraper asylum are suffering with insanity and collective amnesia. As blank-eyed inmates wander the halls and empty rooms of the "Black Tower", the tension rises. as does the body count!

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this Cronenberg or Lynch? July 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Jean Rollin's film will definetly appeal to fans of the above named directors. It has a surreal, dreamlike quality that consistently keeps the viewer guessing as to what is going on. The story is one of lost identity, paranioa and inescapable fate, that one will remember long after viewing. The DVD is thankfully subtitled rather than dubbed and the actors voice inflections during crucial scenes help attain the atmosphere of dread. Be warned that the film contains graphic, probably x-rated sex scenes and strong violence. If you are looking for something different, give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars A poem of the pulp imagination December 11, 2005
Format:DVD
Set in the near future and taking place in an eerily desolate Paris, Night of the Hunted centers on Elisabeth (hauntingly played by Brigitte Lahaie), a young woman who is suffering from a bizarre form of amnesia; she can only remember the present and once an experience ends, it leaves her mind as well. As she herself explains it early on, Elisabeth is doomed to live eternally in the moment. However, she is not alone in her affliction. She lives in a "Black Tower" with several others also cursed to live continually in the moment. Though she is supposedly under the treatment of a coldly impersonal Doctor and his sinister aide, Solange, Elisabeth is really more of a prisoner than a patient. When Elisabeth finally manages to escape the tower, she is picked up by a young man named Robert and promptly forgets just where and from what she escaped. After spending the night with Robert, she is recaptured by the doctor and Solange and taken back to the tower. She promptly forgets Robert as well but Robert doesn't forget her and his attempts to find and rescue her eventually lead the film to its truly tragic conclusion.

This deceptively low-key French film has been unjustly maligned by many critics over the years and, indeed, it is a flawed film. With the exception of Lahaie, the acting is uniformly wooden and the film's low budget is, at times, painfully apparent. However, underneath its undeniably crude and, at times, rather sleazy surface, Night of the Hunted boasts a wealth of treasure for the discriminating filmgoer. As directed by the great (if undeniably idiosyncratic) French filmmaker Jean Rollin, Night of the Hunted is a haunting meditation on the importance of memory and the horrors of living with no individual identity.

By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Most fans know Brigitte Lahaie as the French adult films actress who earned a cult following through her work for director Jean Rollin in erotic horror films like "Fascination." But in "Night of the Hunted" she gives an unexpectedly compassionate performance in a film with the requisite gore and nudity, but also real emotional impact.

5.0 out of 5 stars another great rollin masterpiece September 16, 2003
Format:DVD
if you're looking for something strange that will hold your attention & keep you glued to the screen until the living end, you just might be ready for night of the hunted. rollin's great masterpiece will leave you shaking your head in disbelief but never fails to amaze & excite. those of you gore hounds who just seek out some blood & guts, you will probably find more with his endeavor living dead girl. there is some blood here but the atmosphere is what will grab you & shake you. in the chilling tradition of eyes wide shut or memento, rollin gives you the full effect of paranoia & loss of memory. the film does make sense contrary to what many have wrote here but you have to view this film carefully & look for the hints. in the end, night of the hunted reveals it's dark secrets & the ending is sure to burn it's way into your thoughts for a long time. although we find no vampires here, it's evident that rollin is a serious director & treats his subject matter here with greatest of care. this film will not appeal to folks who tend to avoid pyschological horror or explicit sex. as with most rollin films, night of the hunted isn't intended for all audiences. the film start out with a young girl in a flimsy gown walking in the woods & then a flash of carlights stops her dead in her tracks. the guy naturally picks the girl up & offers to take her home but she can't remember who she is or where home is. in the next scenes, we see she's been taken back to this mysterious tower by a strange man & woman where it seems everyone has lost their mind or they are in the process of losing their minds. here we find a sad building of people struggling to make sense out of the world they are living in or their confusing lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clinging only to fabricated memories February 5, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Imagine the terror of losing every shred of your memory. Every piece of your past is nothing but a ambiguous broken puzzle. There is no foundation for you to grasp on to and seek comfort in. Night of the Hunted is quite an unsettling case of lost identity.

Director Jean Rollin pulls you into another mental realm, one that is devoid of all familiar conscious thought. This is quite a diversion from his typical stuff. It's still a low budget affair equipped with minimalist sets and beautiful porn star actresses. Graphic nudity and bloody madness also get arbitrarily inserted, but are minimal and fairly inconsequential to the plot. This is more just a psychological jaunt.

It feels like a cross between Memento and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. A group of people are unwillingly confined to a tower. Lab rats, yee-haw! Due to a radiation leak, their brains are rotting away as they lose their memories and motor functions.

As their mental capacity continues to diminish, their loneliness and anxiety becomes insurmountable. They all desperately form false memories in order to cope and connect with other people. There also is of course a sinister doctor watching closely and determined to safeguard their horrible fate.

Night of the Hunted is not some brainless gorefest. We are forced to watch a group of disoriented people from a somewhat detatched perspective. It is difficult to fully connect with their hopeless predicament and grasp the true horror of their situation. Thumbs up!

So I've had my first Jean Rollin experience. I have been told by a number of people that it's nowhere near his best film. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Static psychological horror.
This excellent film deviates from Rollin's vampire obsession in favour of a "parnanoid" tale of urban horror. There isn't much action, but the plot is unnerving. Read more
