One of Jean Rollin’s best-loved films, Lips of Blood (Lèvres de sang) finds the master of the fantastiquemarshalling all his obsessions – ruined château, remote beaches, abandoned graveyards, mysterious twins, and female vampires.

When a photograph of a decrepit seaside château evokes a childhood vision of an encounter with a mysterious girl, is compelled to investigate. Soon, he uncovers a surreal and titillating netherworld of female vampirism from which he may not return.

Starring regular Rollin actors Jean-Loup Philippe. Natalie Perrey (The Iron Rose) and the Castel twins, Marie-Pierre and Cathy (Requiem for a Vampire), Lips of Blood is a tour de force within Rollin’s inimitable oeuvre.
