Part of a trilogy that also includes Requiem for a Vampire and Shiver of the Vampires.

3.0 out of 5 stars ILHM Reviews The Rape of the Vampire February 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
A trio of psychoanalysts set off to disprove the legend of the four vampire sisters, only to find that they were gravely mistaken when they encounter the girls living in a dilapidated mansion. None survive when the villagers return to kill them all, but each of the slain characters are revived in the second-half when the Queen of the Vampires returns to experiment on the four girls. Thus begins the career of France's most notorious Horror director, Jean Rollin. Rollin's first feature film dives right in to the surreal and unexplained world of dreamy mysticism for which the director has always been known. Unbound by linear structure, THE RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE blends Rollin's existentialist cinematic approach with High Gothic imagery, sexual fetishism, and the Avante Guard. For all the oppressive atmosphere and skilled cinematography, however, THE RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE simply lacks character and plot cohesion, leaving the audience guessing as to who or what is going on at all times. The stark editing techniques and rather poor acting can be explained away as being chic and independent, but as a result, the film is only likely to appeal to the eccentric Horror viewer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rollin - Rape of the Vampire September 15, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I became interested in Rollin after reading and article about his work in the NY Times:
[...]
Many of them are very good -- Fascination Fascination [Blu-ray] has been described as the Rollin film to see if you're just seeing one. Rape of the Vampire, which started out as a short and then was lengthened, and I think was his first full-length film, is probably his weakest film. It's of interest if you want to see all of Rollin's work.
