Double Bill: The Iron Rose / Requiem For A Vampire

Jean Rollin, 1973/1971, 85/88 mins

A double bill of trapped girls, violated virgins, vampires and terror for only $6.66 – SICK SICK SICK

THE IRON ROSE – TWO LOVERS, ONE GRAVE…

AKA La Rose De Fer

One of Rollin’s rarest films, centred on a young couple who make love in an abandoned tomb and find themselves trapped for the night among the graves and crypts of a massive cemetery. The pair frantically try to escape the haunted grounds but all in vain as they are slowly overtaken by hysteria and finally death.

A sensual and beautiful horror movie, Rollin’s first to NOT feature vampires, but that still has the dreamlike quality for which he is known.

Starring the enchanting Françoise Pascal.

REQUIEM FOR A VAMPIRE – CAN THE LAST VAMPIRE CREATE MORE OF HIS KIND…?

AKA Caged Virgins AKA Virgins and Vampires AKA Sex Vampires

A truly amazing and utterly spellbinding take on the vampire theme, with the director, the late Jean Rollin successfully mixing elements of the fairytale, surrealism, horror and erotica into a striking visual feast that is almost devoid of dialogue.

Centring on two young women on the run from a robbery and a New Year’s Eve party where they had dressed as clowns. The pair end up aimlessly wandering the countryside before taking refuge in a crumbling and abandoned castle and unbeknown to them home to the last of the vampires…

“explicit, rather creepy sexual content”
