Fascination: The Celluloid Dreams of Jean Rollin (2016)

I’ve got to be honest when it comes to Jean Rollin and Eurohorror in general. It’s a blind spot for me. Sure, I’ve seen tons of Italian horror flicks and love ’em, but as far as gothic/creepy castle type Eurohorror it’s not a big draw for me. I’ve only seen The Grapes of Death and […]

Countess Perverse (1973)

Can I be honest and admit something to you? Ok. Here I go. I’m not a fan of Jess Franco. There. I said it. I’ve seen a handful of his films, probably not the high water marks, but all the films I’ve seen have been for me dull. Not enough action, and too much nudity […]
