Taking a resurrection and desperate immortality, the reborn heroine must feed on blood in order to survive, but the process of aquiring it fills her with despir and anguish. A dark, beatiful and tragic film, this is one of cult director Jean Rollin's most successful and commercial films. Remastered from the original negative, with the original trailer.

The story..A tremor in a crypt where 2 grave robbers have broken into knocks over a barrel containing a toxic waste, it then revives a beautiful dead heiress. Later, with the help of her childhood friend she must quench her thirst for fresh blood and that means killing. Meanwhile an American woman has captured the woman on camera and decides to investigate. But all those in the village who see the picture say the woman died some time ago...

After seeing "Zombie Lake" some years back i was understandably put off Jean Rollin as a serious director. Although the film was hilarious, its poorness and total ineptness was indefensible. However, after recently seeing and enjoying "Grapes of Death" and "The Iron Rose" i was eager to give the director another chance. I was correct to do so as "The Living Dead Girl" is a good film with nice photography and a genuine morbid atmosphere. Although all logic is thrown out of the window in terms of story it's well acted with a convincing relationship between the 2 lead woman. The direction is impressive with a constant gloomy and dreamy feel and look. Also the gore scenes it must be mentioned are very gory. This is definitely the most bloody film i've seen by Rollin, and although the fx aren't great at times the brutal and frenzied death moments are memorable. I personally don't find this film dull and in the quieter times i was still fascinated.
This release from Redemption is totally uncut and it's in French with English subtitles.

THE MOVIE

Jean Rollin was known for his French exploitation movies that certainly are not for everybody's taste. 1982's La morte vivante known as THE LIVING DEAD GIRL is no exception. Just check out the cover art of the US Blu-ray and you'll know what to expect.
While in no way brilliant in regards of the story, THE LIVING DEAD GIRL is a class of it's own. There's no invasion of an army of zombies, there is just one, Catherine, and she is not a rotting corpse at all and in order to survive, she must drink blood.
Some of the acting is rather good - Françoise Blanchard, who plays Catherine and Marina Pierro - while others are quite bad (Carina Barone and some of the supporting cast).
The director didn't really use the movie's full potential, i got the feeling. The pacing is slow, and there is not really much going on between the killings. I do like that Catherine is not your typical brain-craving zombie that only feeds, but a deeply disturbed woman suffering from her untimely death.
There is a lot of nudity, typical for French exploitation movies and the gore scenes are extremly bloody and drawn out, the camera always stays on a full close-up, which makes this movie only tolerable for a certain audience. Catherine doesn't use a machete or knife for the killings, but rather her fingernails, poking her victims to death. What sounds pretty lame at fist actually is very gory and quite shocking.
The background story, which is a tale of friendship and sisterhood is an interesting aspect, but also here the director doesn't use the full potential. I'm not saying he does a bad job, but he could have done more with the material. There are some really fantastic scenes with both main actresses and the final scene in particular is very haunting.

Format: DVD
This is a good film by Jean Rollin, first relesed in 1982. Catherine has been dead for two years, but when an Earth tremor causes some toxic waste to spill, the gases bring her back to life. First killing the people who had dumped the waste and were looting her coffin, Catherine makes her way back home. Catherine's home is a chateau, in which she was buried in the vaults, but finding herself alone she has to wait for someone to arrive so that she can feed on their blood.

When Catherine's blood sister, Helene arrives she at first thinks that Catherine is alive, and that she had been lied to about her death. As realisation dawns on Helene that Catherine can only be kept alive by fresh human blood, she sets about enticing people to the chateau. There is something haunting about this movie, as you see before your eyes how ultimately people change. At the beginning you can see that Catherine is the bad one, always needing blood, but by the end your perceptions change, as you see what Helene does. Of course there is some nudity here of attractive women.

This film is in colour and there are subtitles, but also quite a bit of it is in the English language. As an added bonus in the extras this also includes Rollin's black and white short film of 1965, Les Pays Loins.

Format: VHS Tape
Less gore than the US version but still retaining its essential character, this is arguably Rollin's best offering. When an earthquake causes toxic gases to leak into the tomb of recently deceased Catherine Valmont, she returns to life dammed with an overpowering bloodlust. Brought back slowly to the reality of her existence by her best friend, she becomes a tortured soul unable to deal with her need to kill. The two most notable themes in the film are the relationship between Catherine and her friend, with a depth of feeling any lesbian relationship would be proud of, and Catherine's inability to deal with her belief that she is evil. "Je suis mal!", she utters repeatedly in a truly heart-renching manner which I defy anyone not to be deeply moved by.
The only disappointing aspect to this film is the rather tiresome supporting roles of a nosey photographer and her whining husband who pop up from time to time throughout the film looking more and more pointless.
A deeply moving film with a tragic climax.
