This review is from: Lips Of Blood  [DVD] (DVD)
Jean Rollin's art films aren't going to be to the taste of the mainstream horror fan. Lips of Blood is a surreal vampire film that is like a dream in form and style. Visually its amazing. Dramatic lighting and wide angle compositions made it startling to look at. Also there are the nude young women, bright colours, blood and lovely scenery. Thats what you get. Dont expect a strong narrative or horror set pieces. The film makes no attempt to create suspenseful horror scenes. In fact, the few scenes of action are executed in a very clumbsy way and more could have been made of the blood drinking scenes. However, its a haunting film that will be enjoyed by people who like El Topo, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders and other surreal, visual films.
