Sparked by an image he sees on a postcard, a man starts having visions of a girl he met and fell in love with when he was 12; mysterious people try to stop him from finding the castle in the photograph, while twin vampires in see-through nighties help him from afar. Slow-moving atmospheric horror drama with lots of sex and nudity (that's the Jean Rollin way), but it drags at times and the ending has little payoff.
An interesting vampire movie from Rollin, not good, not bad, just interesting. It's atmospheric and exotic like most of his work. The story is mysterious and a bit confusing too. Overall, it's an okay movie.
Often called Jean Rollin's most personal film, Lips of Blood is yet another erotic vampire film with artistic aspirations from a director who goes to the well a little too often. While there are interesting moments that focus on the nature of memory and its connection with trauma and horror, the film as a whole does little to distinguish itself from Rollin's other films or erotic vampire films from the 70s more generally.
