Nude Vampire, The (Blu-ray)
Remastered Blu-ray release of this stunning, classically dreamlike vampire film from the fertile imagination of France's master of the sublime, Jean Rollin!!
From the title and the opening sequence of La vampire nue the viewer is thrust into a dreamlike erotic state in which vampires roam abandoned castles and pagan rites cast their spell across the land. This complex and beautiful film is one of Rollin's best ever, and is massively rewarding for open-minded fans of the macabre. The mysterious and sensual title character played by Caroline Cartier is the key to mysterious events involving scientists studying immortality, and a surreal suicide cult. A young man discovers his father is somehow involved in a secret society who carry out sinister rituals in animal masks. When he investigates he finds that the enigmatic, mute beauty at the centre of events may hold the key to the future of mankind's evolution. A very strange, poetic and unique piece of exploitation cinema, quite unlike any other. Very highly recommended to fans of the offbeat and unusual!
