French film with English subtitles.
From French director Jean Rollin, best known for making erotic vampire films, La Rose De Fer (The Iron Rose) is one of his least known and rarest films.
When two young lovers decide to spend the day together after meeting at a friend's wedding, they soon stumble across a large, overgrown and Gothic looking cemetery. After making love in the privacy of an abandoned underground crypt, the couple emerge to find that night has fallen. As they walk around desperately trying to find a way to leave the cemetery, they are disturbed to find that which ever way they go, they eventually find themselves back in the same place. As the night goes on, the young women slowly begins to lose her sanity and the man struggles to keep control of the situation.
An artistic, beautifully seductive and macabre film, this is definitely one for horror fans who prefer atmosphere and emotion, over action and gore.
Redemption / Salvation Films have made a good job presenting this film in it's original widescreen format (although encoded full frame for some reason?). Picture and sound quality are good, but be warned, the description on the back of the DVD case kinda gives away the ending. Best to watch the film before reading what's written about it.
