Editorial Reviews

Director Jean Rollin proves he's the master of the sexy vampire movie genre with this cinematic version of his novel of the same name. Louise and Henrietta are two orphans who can't see; unbeknownst to everyone else, though, their sight does return... but only at night, when they roam the streets on the lookout for someone on which to feast.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Interview with Jean Rollin, Interviews with cast and crew, Original Theatrical Trailers and more! Includes Original French Language Track with English Subtitles or English Dubbed

This movie is quite different from the usual Jean Rollin film. There is practically no nudity or blood or softcore eroticism. It is tamer however it is visually more impressive than most of his other works. So those who prefer to watch Rollin films for purpose of atmosphere, elaborate sets and artistic value might find this to be one of his better efforts.
Two blind young women enter "Les Glycines", a religious orphanage in rural France. Apparently, the two lost their sight at a very early age and for no apparent reason. Assigned to the case is Dr. Dennary, an expert eye specialist who seeks to unravel some of the reasons for their condition. Little do the doctor and the nuns in the orphanage know that at night, the two girls can see just fine. At night is when the two girls turn into vampires and sneak out of their bedroom window to scour the orphanage's external surroundings for human blood. After a while, Dr. Dennary and the two orphans will relocate to Paris in an apartment, which suits the two orphans just fine since in the city the streets at night are a haven for fresh blood...
"Two Orphan Vampires" captures a good 70's eurohorror vibe but with a modern look and minus the grainy picture. There is precious little gore effects in this one, besides a sickening scene involving the throat-ripping of a dog in a cemetery. Mostly it's just a few blood capsules dripping down the orphans' necks when they kill a victim. There is only one scene of nudity, where the two orphans (who barely look older than eighteen I might add) bare all at dusk during one of their night crawling expeditions. Despite the absence of nudity and blood (or action, for that matter) what kept my eyes glued to the screen was the amazing sense of atmosphere Rollin created.

Format: DVD
In many respects "Two Orphan Vampires" epitomizes the films of Jean Rollin. Its subject matter is Rollin's favorite: murderous but strangely vulnerable vampires. His protagonists are (as usual) two girls--possibly lesbian, certainly vampiric. Furthermore, the film's overall atmosphere, a disquieting blend of elegy and fairy tale, is typical of Rollin's work. Nevertheless, "Two Orphan Vampires" stands out as the great director's finest masterpiece--a poetic gem whose underlying theme is nothing less than the Imagination itself.

Though the film's predacious central characters, Henriette and Louise, are raised in a Catholic orphanage, thence removed to the Parisian mansion of their adoptive father--their actual home is within their own minds. Typically adolescent, the two girls share a secret fantasy world based largely on all the forbidden literature they can borrow or pilfer--fantastic picture books, penny dreadfuls, horrific chapbooks, etc. Absolutely Romantic, they allow their Gothic imagination to enter the real world in a quintessentially Gothic form: they practice vampirism.

Who can blame them? The normal world, as presented by Rollin, is unbearably dismal. Initially it is symbolized by the orphanage's monotony. At the film's close the world contracts to an indifferent, motionless swamp. Given these prospects, along with the apparent death or slumber of God(s), Henriette and Louise declare bloody war against the status quo. Vive L'Imagination! Rollin's idea, expressed through his heroines' actions, couldn't be clearer: "I think I am a vampire; therefore I am a vampire." (My apologies to Descartes.)

Naturally, Henriette and Louise lack a classical vampire's superhuman powers.

Well, there was lots of blood, but most of the movie is art - showing areas of rural France and Paris, or someplace that may be Paris, as I don't really know where the scenes were shot. Some scenes are even in New York city.
The two women selected to be the vampire sisters don't look anything like each other, but they do a good job with what they were given and look very nice, nude or clothed. The DVD also has interviews with the two actresses and Jean Rollin himself. One of the actresses can even speak English and her English is very cute! Yes, there is violence and some gore and lots of weird creatures and girls in school uniforms but much of the pleasure of this film was in the craft of the camera. It was just so lovely to watch and listen to.

I had never seen a Jean Rollin film before until I saw this one. I don't quite know what to make of it (that's why I gave it 3 stars). Part of me wants to watch it again and again and another part of me wants to use the damn DVD as a beer coaster. This film appears to be more of an "artsy" type of flick than a vampire movie. The imagery in the movie is pretty good, even though most of it has nothing to do with the "plot" (a plot that is paper thin). To me, the best things about this movie are the main characters (two gorgeous young French girls) and the dialogue. Not that what they are saying is very interesting, but it's the WAY they say it, and the fact that they are speaking French in a pretty sexy way. (That being said, make sure you watch the movie with French audio, not English. The DVD offers English subtitles in case you don't speak French.) Speaking of sexy, there is one pretty good nude scene in which both girls (who are very hot) get naked in front of one another. They also occasionally lick blood from each others necks. All in all, not a great movie, but worth checking out.
