Netherlands released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: French ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Photo Gallery, Scene Access, Trailer(s), Uncut, SYNOPSIS: This offbeat mixture of eroticism and dystopian science fiction was directed by French cult figure Jean Rollin. While driving along a lonely road in the middle of the night, a man (Vincent Gardnere) sees Elizabeth (Brigette Lahaie), a beautiful woman, wandering by the side of the road, obviously disoriented and wearing only a flimsy white nightgown. Another woman, Veronique (Dominique Journet), equally dazed and entirely nude, looks on. When Elizabeth collapses, the man takes her back to his home, where she confesses that she has amnesia and isn't sure what's happening to her. The two feel drawn to each other and spend the night making love, but the man's home is invaded, and Elizabeth is taken away. Trying to find her, he discovers that Elizabeth and Veronique have been taken back to a mysterious asylum from which they escaped, where a variety of surreal and sexually-oriented tortures await them. Shot on a low budget in a mere two weeks, La Nuit des Traquees was heavily cut in most of its video releases prior to its appearance on DVD; it was released in English-speaking countries as The Night of the Hunted. ...Night of the Hunted ( La nuit des traquées ) ( The Night of the Hunted )

Slightly off centre Rollin flick set in a mental hospital (which curiously resembles a suburban insurance office). The plot is curious, but then, aren't they always?? That said, the way in which the film is shot, and the beautiful manner in which the ubiquitous nudity is handled, all make this an above average Rollin outing. Brigitte Lahaie sizzles. So worth buying.

This is an astoundingly bad film ... and interesting to watch for that reason. Jean Rollin is a genuinedly gifted, if frequently disorganised, under funded and evidently sponsor influenced director: at his best his visual sense and ability to present unforgettable scenes is almost unrivalled. He gives you time to look at the pictures - forget about the stories - and his use of lighting and skill in emphasising the depth of scenes - using passages, doorways, sweeps of stairs, distant backgrounds - are always, or at least usually, a joy. His slightly dotty plots - half baked science fiction ideas, lack of rational continuity (why are the two girls being shot at at the start of Requiem for a Vampire? - I have never found out) are an amusement of surprises in themselves. (Who else has ended up making his vampires the good guys? -"Requiem ..", "La Fiancee de Dracula" "Levres de Sang"...) Most of that flair mis-fires in "La Nuit des Traquees", though for once the diction is clear enough to follow easily! The idea of looking at the plight of people losing their memory, personality, futures, is a good enough subject. Both Brigitte Lahaie and Dominique Journet act touchingly and with considerable poise and talent - but the logic with which their situation is shown, and the explanation set behind it, are slipshod and silly; the details of the story are ramshackle and, it seems to me, improperly derivative - echoed from SS doctors in concentration camps, from the gas oven body disposal, from euthanasia of "degenerates" and so on.Read more ›

Excellent cult movie from director Jean Rollin. The movie presents a mysterious and dark atmosphere , a city with empty streets and two beautiful girls trying to run away from a strange clinic for people seriously ill. Very interesting for a low budget movie.

Regards. Tallis

Great for those interested in Jean Rollin's film work. Night of the Hunted has some great moments. I particularly like the last scene that leads into the credits.

I ordered this after reading a review that compaired this to the best of David Cronenberg's work.
Believe me it's not!
It's a boring badly shot piece of self indulgence.
The only saving grace is the leading actress is cute, but she was hired because of her looks and her willness to disrobe at a moments notice not because of any acting talent.
