Yet another well-done, beautiful-looking Jean Rollin film. Some workers storing chemical waste in a crypt decide to moonlight as grave-robbers and open a coffin containing an astonishingly well-preserved young woman. But oops, there's this earthquake, y'see, and chemicals spill and o' course this brings the girl back to life and she starts killing (sharp fingernails!). Then she wanders off to a large chateau, of which her undead brain contains vague memories. There she meets her best friend, who's so glad to see her back among the living (sort of) that she decides to help her get the blood she craves by luring in victims. This leads to some pretty heavy gore - more graphic than what you usually see from Rollin - and o' course there's plenty of nudity, all of it beautifully, poetically filmed. Pretty extreme in all counts, and has that dreamlike suspension-of-logic that'll make you not worry about details (like why didn't the girl decay at all? and is there anything worse than the accordian-rock of The Fireflies?). Another good 'un from Rollin.

Format:Blu-ray
God forbid...the utilization of nudity as an artistic mechanism--and by a pornographer, no less! An odd, happy little find from the antique horror section, this film manages to take a serious approach at what may be prematurely deemed a lesbian zombie exploitation flick.

Our story is about a young woman (Catherine) who rises from the dead after an earthquake causes a small toxic waste spill. Completely undecayed and looking quite lovely, she stabs two guys in the eyes and throat with her apparently deadly fingernails in some ultra-campy gored up scenes that should please with broad smiling Oh Gods. She then finds her way to a castle in which she once lived. Now this may feel like the beginning of some classic, trashy, Euro-horror smut with excessive gore, but this film actually offers us a lot more than that and shouldn't be prematurely judged.

She sheds a few tears--as zombies do, if indeed that's how we're to classify her--as the house stirs up some memories of her childhood and best friend (Helene). She kills a few others, again with brusquely executed fingernail throat stabbings, then does some blood-feeding--not really sure if I'm supposed to say the word "vampire" here. Now comfortable in her home, Catherine strips to nothing as if reborn into her new form. I'm not gonna' lie. There is a lot of full frontal nudity in these scenes and, again, I'd remind you not to judge just yet.

Catherine's beloved friend Helene arrives and knows that her best friend has been dead for a good while by now. But her reaction is not disbelief or panic. No, no, no. It's are you okay? as she stands before her mute, naked, blood-soaked, clearly murderous, long dead friend like everything is normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great French Gore Romp July 16, 2000
Format:DVD
THE LIVING DEAD GIRL is easily my favorite of the 7 Jean Rollin DVD's released thus far by IMAGE on DVD and it's the only one in my permanent collection. If you like your euro-horror a little sexier, a lot GORIER, and even quite humorous, you cannot go wrong here. From the opening scene with the graverobbers being disfigured by toxic vapors (hilariously fake) to later ultra-gory scenes as our tragic zombie-female-vamp dispatches one victim after another with her long sharp fingernails or devours their necks in extra-long munching scenes, this one DELIVERS the goods! It has a very euro-horror feel to it and is not as esoteric and heady as some of the other Rollin films. Although french, it easily would appeal to fans of italian horror as well...so if you're not a big Rollin fan, you may want to give this one a chance anyway. The DVD looks great and includes a trailer with ALL the highlights of the film in it (so watch the movie first). Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gory but Goody! March 7, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I can honestly say that this is one of the most... er... unusual films I have ever seen! When a chemical spill inadvertently resurrects a young woman who died two years before, she does not appear to be very happy to have been brought back as a "living dead girl". I suppose this would account for her disturbingly anti-social behavior (i.e. gouging out people's eyes, eating people, drinking their blood, et cetera)....P>This is a thoroughly enjoyable film, although I would strongly advise watching it on either an empty stomach or a full stomach. Unless you own stock in a barf bag company, I really do not think that you would enjoy washing down your Coke and Pizza with images of blood and guts emanating from your television screen.
Anyway, this is an A +++++ film! Enjoy, everybody!

3.0 out of 5 stars Representative work from Jean Rollin February 4, 2013
Format:DVD
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Jean Rollin films are an acquired taste. Maybe that's not quite it - it may be that those who enjoy Rollins output were immediately attracted, while those who don't get it never will.

I don't get it.

I mean, I get sexy women prancing around in the nude; I get gory scenes of flesh eating and eye-gouging and axes to the head; and I certainly get the not-so-subtle lesbianism. I get how all those things and more can be a part of an entertaining film - B-class or otherwise - and The Living Dead Girl has all these and more. All the necessary ingredients are here, and, to varying degrees, Rollin's zombie export is on par with other, low-budget, poorly acted horror films.

What I don't get is the acclaim for this and other films by Rollin. I will grant that he has a particular story that he wants to tell, and in a particular style, and he stays very true to that vision. I will also grant that his films have a very visceral affect on me; even in something as goofy as School Girl Hitch Hikers (or High School Hitch Hikers, depending on what version you find) has a way of drawing me into his deviant world in a way I'm not sure I'm comfortable with - or at least not comfortable enough to seek out on a regular basis. Although apparently I have a need to dip back into that well occasionally just to remind myself that it isn't really my bag.

Or maybe it is an acquired taste after all, and I just haven't seen the amount of Rollin material necessary for me to properly appreciate it. But I do know that there is something about Rollin's camera work - the way it lingers - that is extremely voyeuristic.
