The Iron Rose

Jean Rollin, 1972, 85 mins

AKA La Rose de Fer

‘The Film’s uniquely peculiar atmospherics have gained it a cult following… some consider it on a par with the original Carnival of Souls| as among the simplest and creepiest of macabre films.’ – New York Times

This is one of Rollin’s rarest films for the first time on DVD anywhere. 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.
