OH YEAH! it's great & redemption has made this collection available with an amazingly low cost. yes, that's 3 great films of rollin at a small price. for those of us who've wanted to study the maestro's classics or just indulge in some fantastic eurotrash, this is an absolute dream come true. infact, this was my introduction or 1st lesson in my education of jean rollin. of all three films, i'd have to say i love rape of the vampire best. as strange as this might sound, i was initially very confused when i saw this film & wouldn't have rated it so highly had i not given it a second viewing. having said that, i loved the images which are macabre & beautiful almost all at once. needless to say, that 2nd viewing really stole my attention & gave me a deeper appreciation of the film altogether. i was able to piece together the events & characters the 2nd time around & i realized what a genius jean rollin truly is. rape of the vmapire is to jean rollin as eraserhead is to david lynch. a rare landmark film that should be talked about for years & could be deemed an instant cult classic. the next film was equally enjoyable but not as confusing. shiver of the vampire is campy, macabre, and ironically funny. you'll find yourself shivering with delight at the hilarious but philosophical dialogue & shuddering with some of the images of erotic & vampiric activity. i could see this film would probably be more embraced by the mainstream than perhaps some of his earlier. not exceptionally graphic but there is a great deal of implied homoeroticism here. the next film was perhaps one of his most mainstream films (or should i say popular) of all time. released under various names through the years, requiem for a vampire is presented here in all of it's uncut glory.Read more ›

Picked up this set expecting some typical vampire films and was blown away by the photography and ambiance. This set introduced me to the beauty and strangeness of Rollin's work. It was his later films that really captivated me: Fascination, Two Vampire Orphans, and Fiancee of Dracula. These are hard films to describe but there's something very beautiful about them. You'll either get it or you wont. The films in this set aren't as captivating to me as the three films I mentioned above but they have some amazing moments and I'm very pleased that I discovered this set of films since they introduced me to the work of this visionary director and led me to experience the glory of his later films.

If you are unfamiliar with the cinema of Jean Rollin, he made erotic, gothic, atmospheric films. If nudity is not your cup of tea, don't watch his films. You won't get it. Jean Rollin was making films in the 1970's, when film makers where pushing the limits of what they could put on screen. Whether it was nudity, sex or violence. And Jean Rollin used all of them to great effect with his french gothic style to make some of the most unforgettable imagery you will ever see. In Jean Rollin's fantastic 1971 film Requiem For A Vampire, this is most true.
(This is the Third film in a sort of Trilogy. 1: The Rape Of The Vampires (1968) 2: The Shiver Of The Vampires (1970) and 3: Requiem For A Vampire (1971))

The Film starts out with the two main characters (Marie-Pierre Castel and Mireille Dargent) dressed as clowns in car chase shooting at the chaser.

They escape and make it to an eerie castle where they are bitten by bats and meet a Vampire woman.

They are taken to a dark graveyard with a dungeon in the center, drenched in red light where the "Caged Virgin's" are held ("Caged Virgins" was the US title when this film was released in the United States.)

There they meet the last true living vampire, he sends them to find male victims and drink their blood so that they may be initiated as vampires.

They each find a man, Mireille Dargent's character lures her pray to the top of the castle, where she kills him. While Marie-Pierre Castel's charactor find a man, but she finds that she likes him. She loses her virginity and hides him in the castle. She lies and says she found no one.

When they are taken to be initiated, the Vampire knows her virginity has been taken, though it had been there just the day before.

For film buffs looking for t'n'a, this movie does have a decent amount. However, this film is primarily atmosphere driven. The plot builds slowly, very slowly, and it is roughly 30 minutes into the movie before the story proper begins. There is a fair vampire story with a unique twist towards the end. The 70's outfits and style also add the the effect of the film. Most viewers will likely find the film lacking, but it is an interesting page in the history of vampire B movies.

I can think of one good use for this film.
People who are learning to speak and listen to French can benefit from listening to the soundtrack.
Not too much dialogue, so easier to comprehend.
But don't watch. Your brain will ossify.

Otherwise not much to recommend.
Also, doesn't a Requiem need music? Yes there's one scene with the vampire playing an organ, but he's the one the Requiem is
for, according to the title, so why is he still alive, or conscious, if undead. I'm confused.
