This erotic horror film from controversial cult director Jean Rollin is among his best. Set in 1916, it tells the story of a thief who seeks refuge in a castle owned by two women, Eva (Brigitte Lahaie) and Elizabeth (Franca Mai). The women are seductive and teasing, but turn out to be part of a vampiric cult of blood-drinking aristocrats. The film's most striking sequence has Eva slashing her way through a group of armed peasants with a large scythe. Filled with Rollin's typically heady mix of sex, violence, and hallucinatory visuals, Fascination may be the most accessible introduction to his unique body of work. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

Erotic vampires by msilenus February 11, 2003 - 3:46 PM PST

This was my first Jean Rollin film experience. I had read a film analysis of his films in the journal Necronomicon and was quite surprised by the quality of it. Expecting something like Jesus Franco with bad acting and so on. The acting was actually quite decent and the film was from 1979. Which still made it pretty ahead of its time in terms of content. Enjoyed some of the shots that he acheived with such a low budget which was apparent throughout the film in terms of lack of horses and antique cars in 1905 which was the date the film was set in. All in all an interesting experience. It was very noticeable from the print though that there were scenes censored.The trailer had some scenes that were in the film but cut of nudity in parts.

Lesbian Vampires
Not all lesbian vampire stories are trash. Some of these are, but at least they're fun trash. Others are actually good. I could insert several comments about why lesbian vampires are so common in (more modern?) fiction, but the reasons are too varied.
