5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless Blu-ray Presentation!
"The Iron Rose" was my first try on the movies of french cult classic director Jean Rollin (RIP). Storyline of the picture is really fast told. It's about a young pair of teens who find themselves on an old cemetery in the outskirts of the city. As darkness falls they can't find the way out. Suddenly they realize that the dead souls within the cemetery won't let them...

3.0 out of 5 stars REDEMPTION DVD
Francoise Pascal is delectable. Strange little poem of a film shot mostly in an old cemetery. Francoise Pascal is delectable. The image is super and dialogue clear and Francoise Pascal is delectable. The extras are actually quite informative, Francoise Pascal's especially. You can draw your own conclusion from the ending and I know which one I chose. Francoise Pascal is...

This review is from: Iron Rose [Blu-ray] [1973] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
"The Iron Rose" was my first try on the movies of french cult classic director Jean Rollin (RIP). Storyline of the picture is really fast told. It's about a young pair of teens who find themselves on an old cemetery in the outskirts of the city. As darkness falls they can't find the way out. Suddenly they realize that the dead souls within the cemetery won't let them go.
Redemptions Blu-ray presentation of Jean Rollin's highly acclaimed masterpiece looks brilliant. It reveals many details which were not seen on former editions and comes wih crisp picture with light graining. The Audio is 2.0 in french (with optional english subs) and english.
This set comes highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow, Seductive and Very Atmospheric, 10 Jun 2005

This review is from: The Iron Rose [1972] [DVD] (DVD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars J'adore Francoise, 27 July 2014
This review is from: Iron Rose [Blu-ray] [1973] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Having mainly seen Ms Pascal in British films/t.v.as a "bit of crumpet",it was a pleasure to see her get a real role.Have most Rollin films in my collection,so was glad to add this.My only surprise was seeing how little she wore,that she was very brave following his directions i.e.rolling round in a grave/graveyard.Must have suffered lots of cuts and bruises for her art.

3.0 out of 5 stars A strange film, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is billed as a horror film by some, a love story by others. I would see it more as a revenge story. A young man goes out of her way to frighten a girl. He succeeds , then faces dreadful consequences. It is a very strange tale, and for that reason worth seeing. I have nothing seen anything else loke it.
