Overview

This erotic horror film from controversial cult director Jean Rollin is among his best. Set in 1916, it tells the story of a thief who seeks refuge in a castle owned by two women, Eva (Brigitte Lahaie) and Elizabeth (Franca Mai). The women are seductive and teasing, but turn out to be part of a vampiric cult of blood-drinking aristocrats. The film's most striking sequence has Eva slashing her way through a group of armed peasants with a large scythe. Filled with Rollin's typically heady mix of sex, violence, and hallucinatory visuals, Fascination may be the most accessible introduction to his unique body of work.
