  1. salty_candy's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    I actually shed a tear in the end. As usually this Rollin movie is very slow-paced and nonetheless extremely intriguing, almost hypnotizing. Makes you sink deep into the feeling of futility. And if that's not a convincing reason, the movie is still worth watching to see the women get undressed. They do that quite often.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm lovely piece of tape

  3. Jack Joseph Kahn's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    I really identify as fiercely delirious and wearing gucci while amnesically wandering to my doom

  4. Shayan Bazri's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Trashy narrative logic. You can't believe your eyes when the film ends.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Another strange mix of soft core porn and horror convention from Jean Rollin that while not a total failure has enough eye rolling sequences to make it ridiculous. Brings to mind the earlier Cronenberg film 'Shivers aka They Came From Within'. The soup eating sequence is just perfect for those who love terrible acting.

  7. T Mills's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    My second experience with Rollin after watching Lips of Blood. I'm sad I missed more titles; I'm recent Mubi subscriber. This was not as good as the first I saw of his work but still very effective, bold and original. The cinematography was strong and the movie genuinely disturbing.

  9. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

  10. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    This film is cold. This can be (or not be) gracious, but in this case here is just too cold. No connection, nothing. At least some tits and sex to warm this thing, but even there, it's hot godamn cold.

  11. Joe Pryweller's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Rollins most topical film. Euthanasia, nuclear disaster, a government cover-up, a virus on the loose -- all very in the moment in 1980. A bit dated but still affecting today, if a bit too heavy handed compared to Rollins' other work. As the characters lose their memories and humanity, the wooden acting seems very apropos of a mind stripped bare.

  12. James Cavet's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Some people may be turned off to this film because of the out of place sex scenes; some for the slowness that gives you a sense of amnesia or waking from a coma. I say all these things are why it's so interesting. Night of the Hunted is a metaphoric musing on the nature of self and memory; how not remembering what we've done and where we've been has a catastrophic effect on our ability to navigate the world.

  13. Kidshazam's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    This being more or less my first Rollin film, I enjoyed the story quite a bit. Cronenbergian is right, and I think that atmosphere goes a long way to making what is slow and boob-filled into contemplative and watchable.

  14. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Not as focused or well-paced as Lips of Blood, but Rollin came up with a strong concept and gives it an intriguing atmosphere. The gothic castles are replaced with cold modernity, and the idea of a commune of people who can still feel pain/pleasure but are losing their ability to think is open to all sorts of interpretations that the film may or may not deserve. I'd love to see a knowing remake, a la Cape Fear.

  15. jamesey's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    A horny high schooler could have made this. Sure, Rollin's film have an abundance of sex and violence, but it's justified. In this film it's gratuitous.

  16. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    It was a bit like "They came from Within", but with even more sex and nudity!

  17. Sophy Romvari's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Minus the exposition, the ending is definitely worth the wait.

  18. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Ily Jean but that eroticized rape was so not Gucci and soured the experience. The last 30 minutes tho, as stated, are perfect <3_<3.

  19. roseros's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Some good old fashioned sexploitation nonsense. Sometimes I want to sit brooding over Bela Tarr or Bresson with a cup of coffee, other days are good for ice cream and John Waters. Jean Rollin definitely pairs well with Haagen Dazs Butter Pecan mmmm.

  20. animalcalls's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    The first hour is standard, entertaining enough sleaze that doesn't leave much of a mark... but the final 30 minutes are transported from another world entirely, it seems, in the best way possible. The final shot is love seared onto 35mm.

  21. Sy's rating of the film The Night of the Hunted

    Dreamlike, trashy and humane at the same time, probably Rollin's best. Also the incredibly incredible but brief urban montage shots are later expanded into a whole movie in Lost in New York. Too bad that the last ten minutes of that movie are just plain silly, and not in a good way.
