  1. Patricia's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    This was very interesting film... not much dialogue but still pretty interesting french film. I can see this film being inspo for many fashion ads etc too.

  2. msmichel's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Rollin's blend of eroticism, vampirism and soft core pornography is well on display in this early feature. Two young girls eluding the law stumble across a vampire's torture chamber and their only saving grace from being added to the stable of beauties is their virginity. Dialogue is very sparse but Rollin is always more about atmosphere then plotting.

  3. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    My fourth Rollin I've seen so far, this was originally titled CAGED VIRGINS when released in the U.S. back then. Like his other films I've previously watched (except ZOMBIE LAKE), the themes it dealt with and how it had little dialogue feels like a quiet work but it has style yet enjoyable and how the film opened before going to see the vampires seemed odd, too, but this was Rollin after all.

  4. lIZUKA's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Cool ! That fair-haired girl is the kind of best friend I always wanted to have.

  5. OcioActivo's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    As the 6th and last Jean Rollin of the marathon, Requiem For A Vampire might be its worst, but that's only because the directors' normally great track record as the king of such softcore, creatures of the night films are great. His flourishes and unique eye of sensual and morbid explorations are, should I say, cool? This film falls short more than most for its meandering that it's hard to avoid.

  6. Final Girl ™'s rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    what is up with all the low ratings? I genuinely enjoyed this Rollin film, for a male director making a movie in the early 1970s he does a great job of portraying intimate relationships between women. of course the splashes of bdsm are unneeded but at least it's filmed prettily. the infamous whipping scene was very emotional for me and did a perfect job of portraying internal + external conflict

  7. Leco's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Vampire themed soft porn with some BDSM additions. Nothing much more than that. Almost insufferable, specially for the acting, I'm surprised I could watch the whole thing. Sometimes I did appreciate the soundtrack - nothing exceptional and many times not sitting well with the scenes, but fairly enjoyable. The locations are nice, as well. A few good shots, but so few that they almost go unnoticed.

  8. Abhinay Jakhar's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    you need atleast some kind of drug to enjoy this.

  9. klofter's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    It's interesting how much the sexual politics in this sort of movie differ from those in American horror movies from the same time. The story is, of course, a pretext for Rollin to get as much sex and nudity on camera as he can but he keeps it interesting here by basically turning this movie into a silent movie. A z-grade nudie silent movie, but let's not think too hard about this. It's fun in parts, dull in others.

  10. T Mills's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    My least favorite thus far in Rollin's work but nevertheless more intriguing to watch that most films of this or any genre.

  11. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    "I love tits. I'd like to be the mayor of Tit town, if i could, okay? I'd like to drive a big truck full of tits" --Denis Leary

  12. shimown's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    With all the high talk about surrealism and what not, I thought this might be a decent film. Granted, it has some striking imagery in parts, but it just never seemed to be that interesting, and, in the end. it just sort of fades into a predictable and unfulfilling close.

  13. Chunkino's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Several beautiful shots and landscapes but a bit of a pain in the neck...

  14. Brandon Jones's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Interesting music (lots of organ and some surprisingly good drumming). Vampires squeezing breasts are, to this movie, what ships floating in space is to "2001: A Space Odyssey" (I liked this movie a little more that 2001).

  15. Amanda's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Misoginia meets psychedelia and marrieds absurd comedy

  16. Ben Loory's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    the kind of movie that makes you wish people didn't make movies

  17. profondo_rosso's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Uh... Just... Hmm? So campy it was almost fun... almost

  18. David R Williams's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    No one did (or does) surreal erotic vampyre films better than Rollin. You either get it or you don't - but if you do...this grind-house/art-house hybrid must be seen to be believed.

  19. Kenneth Gentry's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    This is no horror film! This is a quirky, dark comedy, frivolous but fun. If you want horror, watch Martyrs.

  20. Lance Swenson's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Clown shooting gun car chase along a French countryside/ film of 2 cirque du soleil rejects on a wanderlust wearing daisy duke panties/it's early 1970s French cinema. Queue Flaming Lips 3rd lions roar and your on a acid trip of Oz induced rabbit hole morbid fantasia. Yes there's a vampire cave w/lots of reckless sexuality. Make sure wife and kids are off trick or treating when watching. Buy the ticket enjoy the ride.

  21. ravingponies's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    2.5 stars If it weren't for some striking images, this movie would have been a waste of time.

  23. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Super silly with beautiful surrealism embedded in it. There's certain shots in this flick that have the poetic resonance of Malick. I couldn't help but enjoy myself. I just wished it had the same emotional core of The Living Dead Girl.

  24. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Requiem for a Vampire

    Perhaps the most overtly pornographic of Jean Rollin's erotic vampire films, this nearly wordless tale of two schoolgirls (dressed as clowns, no less) who run away from school and stumble upon the torture dungeon of the last vampire, was Rollin's favorite of all his films. Often silly, often beautifully surreal, this early Rollin enigma is one wild ride.
