Visions of Ecstasy

Director Nigel Wingrove
Year 1989
Run Time 19 minutes
Visions of Ecstasy, a short, 19 minute, experimental art film made in 1989, is the only film ever to have been banned outright in the UK solely on the grounds of blasphemy. Further its depiction and interpretations of the erotic imaginings of the 16th Century Carmelite nun, St. Teresa, were such that the films banning was upheld in an historic judgement at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in a case that took seven years to reach its conclusion. Now, due to the abolition of the UK’s blasphemy law in 2008, Visions of Ecstasy is finally being released.

The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine

Director Jean Rollin
Year 1973
Run Time 79 minutes
Best known for his erotic horror films, such as The Rape of the Vampire, Lips of Blood, and The Living Dead Girl, French filmmaker Jean Rollin frequently indulged in the softcore (and occasionally hardcore) sex film. Among the more personal of these films is SCHOOLGIRL HITCHHIKERS (Jeunes filles impudiques), which reflects many of the themes and fascinations that run through his esoteric body of work.
Joëlle Coeur (Rollin’s Demoniacs) and Gilda Arancio star as a pair of lovers enjoying a blissful cross-country hike. But the carefree erotic film turns  suddenly dark when the women are set upon by a band of thieves who think they have stolen their loot, and use sadistic means to force a confession.
Please Note: This film periodically suffers from an unstable image, due to a camera malfunction during the original production.

The Demoniacs

Director Jean Rollin
Year
Run Time
The story follows two young girls, the survivors of a ship-wreck, who are raped and beaten by a band of pirate-like cut throats. Left for dead, the girls, who are sexually empowered by a supernatural being hidden in nearby ruins, re-emerge to seek their wrathful vengeance upon their predators. Violently sexual and imbued with French surrealism, Rollin’s film is not for the faint-hearted!

 

Erotic yet elegiac, tragic and dreamy, Demoniacs is rightly upheld as a Rollin fan favorite.

Chris Boger’s visually sumptuous film is a dark tale of sexual depravity and Sadean excess.

The Nude Vampire

Director Jean Rollin
Year  1970
Run Time 80
Wealthy industrialist Georges Radamante (Maurice Lemaitre) has dreams of immortality. Not through his own achievements, but by finding a way to share the biochemistry of the mute, orphaned vampire woman (Caroline Cartier) who has been raised by hooded needle-stickers in isolation, deprived of exposure to human faces.

Radamante’s son Pierre (Olivier Martin, Rollin’s real-ilfe brother) innocently complicates matters while trying to infiltrate his father’s private club. It is love at first sight and Pierre determines to liberate his beloved, a gaol which attracts the companionship of other vampires, who plan a torch-carrying siege of Radamante’s palatial compound.

The Living Dead Girl

Director Jean Rollin
Year  1982
Run Time 89
THE LIVING DEAD GIRL (La Morte Vivante) is the story of Catherine Valmont (Françoise Blanchard), a wealthy heiress dead before her time, who is accidentally reanimated when some unfortunate movers attempt to store drums of chemical waste in the neglected burial vaults below her uninhabited chateau. Rollin’s “living dead girl” does everything that cinematic convention requires – she kills people, drinks human blood, devours human flesh – yet for all this, we accept her as an innocent. Meanwhile the effect that her resurrection has upon her childhood friend, Hélene (Marina Pierro), is infinitely more conscious, deliberate, and evil.

The Rape of the Vampire

Director Jean Rollin/td>
Year 1968
Run Time 95
A psychiatrist (Bernard Letrou) ventures to a remote castle to convince a brood of four vampire sisters that they are misguided, brainwashed by superstitious villagers, and not truly creatures of the supernatural. The villagers (including director Jean Rollin) confuse and abuse the sisters, before finally storming their castle. The cast descends on a hospital run by a young doctor (Jean-Loup Philippe), charged by the Queen of the Vampires (Jacqueline Sieger) to discover a cure for vampirism. This bewildering action culminates in a ‘blood wedding’ presided over by Sieger, in her regal hot pants, on the legendary stage of the now-defunct Theâtre du Grand Guignol.
