Movie Info

This bizarre, surrealistic erotic-horror film was the first feature by cult director Jean Rollin. There's a great deal of sex, blood, and arty imagery but very little plot to speak of. What plot there is primarily focuses on a pair of insane vampiric sisters who believe that they are cursed by a black Queen Vampire who wears a salamander headband and carries a broadsword.

Audience Reviews for Le Viol du vampire (The Rape of the Vampire)

Although it doesn't really have a coherent plot, part I of this experimental B&W vampire movie involves a psychoanalyst who tries to convince four sisters that they are not vampires; in part II he actually meets the Queen of the Vampires. Jean Rollin's first movie tries to be the "Un Chien Andalou" of lesbian vampire movies; it's not entirely successful but it has some nice moments and images (like the bat skewered on a rapier).

One of Rollin's best in his vampire series, maybe because it was the first, but still I loved it. It's got his beautiful atmospheric style, this time in black and white. And this time there is a clear story and characters you can follow. If you like Rollin's work, you have to see this one.

Although some of the images are very beautiful, I felt that it was too slow with little atmosphere. Rollin films are usually an excuse to view some breasts, but this didn't appear to even try to have much of a plot at all, especially not one which was engaging in any way.
