  2. msmichel's rating of the film Fascination

    '..you're beautiful like that...with his blood on your mouth...' Quite enjoyable erotic horror film that concerns a young thief who hides in a chateau who is manipulated by two young beauties to wait until daylight to leave unwittingly setting himself up as sacrifice to the bloodlust of some aristocratic women. Production values good for the genre even when performances lack but not the beauty of Brigitte Lahaie.

  3. EdieEmm's rating of the film Fascination

    35 years later, now watching the movies I remember being turned off in a hurry when my dad realized kid-me had wandered down out of bed... (full circle?) Beautiful, and neither as shallow nor straightforward as it might seem. Fascination could've just as easily come from Bataille, if he'd gone to film school in the 70s. Gleeful impropriety and a scathing social commentary on the human weakness for power. Also boobs.

  4. Ted Thompson's rating of the film Fascination

    Don't look. Nothing here. Nudity but not erotic. Words but no idea. At the end, no conclusion. I kept fast-forwarding and had no trouble following the 'story'.

  5. Timmy93's rating of the film Fascination

    Naked beautiful women do not make up for boring plot and stiff acting. Feels more like porn at times...

  6. Novak Jankovic's rating of the film Fascination

    An erotic fantasy, rather than a thriller. If you get it as a fantasy, you will like it as it speaks about two most powerful drivers of human action - love and death - and how these two are inevitably related.

  7. henningninneh's rating of the film Fascination

    no suspense, no narrative arc, no humor. just a terribly serious sexploitation flick.

  8. dominique s.'s rating of the film Fascination

    I tried really hard to dislike this.

  9. T Mills's rating of the film Fascination

    This film was frustrating because of how strong it is until the last quarter. The sense of dread Rollin creates throughout the movie is amazing. It's incredible to watch him build the suspense as we follow the main character to what we know almost immediately will be a bad end. However the final moments derail with bad character motivation and ruin what could be a great film. Lips of Blood is still my favorite so far

  10. Lexi Bass's rating of the film Fascination

    Goofy and ridiculous. Bad acting and unapologetic female exploitation at its finest. As a feminist I cringe, but this film was like the charming chauvinist at the table - you have to chuckle at his innocent, if unreflective boyish zest, even though he's a horrible person and you should try to avoid eye contact with him.

  11. klofter's rating of the film Fascination

    Not much to see here. The story is as flimsy as it gets, the performances awful across the board, and even the visuals, Rollin's strong suit, are strangely uninspired. I also struggle to find the "subtext" that's supposed to be there. A director like Rollin, treading the water that he does, is bound to deliver some awful duds sooner or later. This is one, without a doubt.

  12. f. atom's rating of the film Fascination

    Some nice shots, but pretty flimsy overall. The movie can't decide whether it wants to be erotic or scary, and just ends up being boring.

  13. batailleordie's rating of the film Fascination

    Those ladies kiss like they never kissed anyone before and are just trying to figure out how this whole lips and tongue thing works.

  14. skidoc03's rating of the film Fascination

    Of the slew of Rollins movies that MUBI has been showing the past few weeks, this is the only one to hold my interest throughout. Most likely this is due to the hot, busty and sometimes naked lady vampires, however there is a certain sense of style and coherence to this movie that the others lacked.

  15. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Fascination

    Disappointedly this one doesn't achieve what his first films did, though the mise en scène is always a strength in Rollin.

  16. Dodd Alley's rating of the film Fascination

    Jean Rollin does have a way with taking something that could be Skinamax sleaze and making it beautiful or scary. Yes there is plenty of nudity, but it looks more beautiful than exploitative. Plus, as a sense of dread begins to build throughout the film, the viewer may ask themselves if they really feel titillated. This movie successfully manages to be gorgeous and terrifying at the same time.

  17. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Fascination

    Half the pleasure of seeing these films on MUBI is the description: "the trashy is elevated by form and subtext to become something in between". Oh, MUBI, you make Billy laugh.

  18. film_lies101's rating of the film Fascination

    If SFX were a bit better this would be a masterpiece

  20. rllr's rating of the film Fascination

    Even when not accompanied by Brigitte Lahaie, Franca Maï can bite me any day she wants.
