If you’re into trippy pop culture and vampires, you really ought to check out French Director Jean Rollin’s movies.
The Nude Vampire is a great one to start with. It was in French with English dubbing.I prefer subtitles, but in this case it wouldn’t have mattered much because there are about 6 sentences of dialogue. That’s one reason why you won’t try to watch this while knitting a last minute gift or Facebooking on your phone because you’ll miss pretty much everything. Don’t watch it around kids, either, because there are a lot of naked people and strange clothes. Both of which will require so much explaining that you will miss the slowly developing plotline.
Don’t expect an upbeat ending. It is French.
Do expect a surreal experience.
Suggested accompanying drink: red wine. Of course.
The video clip of the opening scene gives you a pretty good idea of what you’re in for.
Intrigued? I had to order it from the library, but it was worth the wait.
If you have Netflix and need something both sexy and creepy right away, try Fascination. This is also by Jean Rollin. It doesn’t ave the all around swank of The Nude Vampire, but its trippy in its own way.
Like a taste before you commit?
