I stopped watching before the 30min mark. It's so bad.
visually stunning. The story makes zero sense and there is a lot of standing around, some slow walking too. Really the worst vampire attack ever filmed, really. Still, weird and fits snugly into the whole rich, chateau secret society boosheets that the French really love. Also, one of the best ending expositions as the two defeated co-conspirators walk off into the field lamenting the fact that they, too, have had no idea what the heck just happened.
I may not be able to tell you straight away who I think is the most creative filmmaker, or the most intellectual filmmaker, or the most symbolic filmmaker, but I have an immediate answer if you want to know the most boring filmmaker: Jean Rollin. His static takes, long scenes, minimal dialogue, and complete absence of suspense and drama delivered by a cast of lousy somnambulating actors would test a chess fan's patience. Hell, the guy even found a way to make nudity dull. This gets one star because it is slightly better (read: has a sort-of plot) than another of his disasterpieces I've seen.
The Nude Vampire is the story of a wealthy young man who discovers that his father is part of a scientific cult, of sorts, who is holding a beautiful vampire captive. They routinely perform tests on the vampire and hope to unlock the secrets to immortality. Let me just start off by saying that this is a very raw filmmaking, so don't expect high production value or anything like that. There are definitely some moments in the film that are borderline laughable because of this lack of a budget but it's sorta part of it's charm. What struck me right away about this film was Rollin's desire to set the mood early with strange framing, bizarre costumes, and musical tones which really help to create the atmosphere for the film. The use of color is vivid and lively with lavish set decorations, costumes and lighting. The imagery is great and the way Rollin composes some of his frames, even lingering at times, coupled with the aforementioned, really create this tone of foreboding unease; I really don't know how to describe it but It is felt. Rollin injects his surreal imagery with a sensuality that just makes parts of this thing sexy as hell, and that has nothing to do with the nudity. If you go into this film expecting a VAMPIRE flick don't even bother cause this film is much more about mankinds' lust for greed and desire for anything and everything and you know.. Human Evolution.
A wealthy young man discovers his father is part of a group holding a vampire captive, trying to determine the secret of immortality. This is one weird, and sometimes very bad, vampire flick; it's hard to predict how you'll react to it, since it's too arty for "bad movie" fans and too raw and amateur for arthouse fans. In the interest of truth in advertising, it should have been titled "The Vampire in the See-through Nightie."
Intresting imagery...alright, alright, it's a titty flick with artistic touches. The twinws are gorgous. I want a set of identical twins with pigtails!
Rollin doesn't waste time. Give him eight minutes and he'll give you his world. (Streaming on Netflix)
Dull, soft focus filmed almost soft porn horror. This kind of thing was a speciality of Jean Rollin but he's made better ones than this.
Tout ce que les amateurs du cinéma de Rollin aiment est déjà dans son deuxième film...
Même chose pour ceux qui le considèrent comme un cinéaste ridicule!
J'ai choisi mon camp il y a bien longtemps!
Un orgie de symboles, d'images et d'Ã (C)vocations surrÃ (C)alistes, mais finalement assez beau...
