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. The film got dreadful reviews for its well-nigh incomprehensible mix of densely graphic imagery, Gaston Leroux poetry, and dialogue which was more than half improvised. The results were mostly regrettable, but Rollin completists will find enough unique touches to make it worth watching. Rollin returned with the even stranger La Vampire Nue. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

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


"Faithfull ones, take your places. Let the blood wedding begin."-Queen of the Vampires (Jacqueline Sieger) This incohernet black and white art house film is the best Rollin film I've seen yet (out of the five I've seen). "The world will become a feast of blood and we will have the best seats."-Queen of the Vampires

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.
