One of cult film director Jean Rollin's more accessible films, an erotic vampire thriller which has a slow, dreamy quality to it.
Of the Jean Rollin erotic vampire horror films that I have seen thus far, this is my favorite--I have yet to become a huge fan of his. This film, however, has begun to change my opinion as its blends genuine stylistic vision and horrific ideas together with the usual gore, nudity, and sex. In Fascination, Rollin manages to create a truly mesmerizing descent into erotic terror as it also surrealistically interrogates and undermines notions of class and station in the face of evil and pure desire.
A highwayman burns his fellow brigands and holes up in a chateau where he meets two seductive women who are expecting mysterious guests at midnight. This is director Jean Rollin's most conventional horror tale, with all of his atmosphere (and nudity) and little of his usual oddness. That leads some people to conclude it's his best film, though actually, the lack of crazy rough edges merely prevents it from being his worst.
