Movie Reviews

More mystery than horror
RodneyPaul | Tampa, Fla | 12/17/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I've just begun to explore the Euro-horror genre, with Lips of Blood being one of the best so far. Interesting visuals (including attractive semi-nude female vampires), effectively somber mood and pacing, and a strong element of mystery, all serve to make this Rollin film worth seeing. However, if you are really into lots of gore and sex in horror films, this is one to skip."
A Rollin Masterpiece
William Amazzini | 05/22/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Redemption has released the definitive version of Rollin's most haunting film of his repetoire. The Image Entertainment release of many years back had scratches and soundtrack noise. Not this one. Never has there been a more haunting vampire tale filmed than this gem. If you are looking for a fast moving gore fest, look elsewhere. Watch this artistic genius wave his 1970's brush across your high def monitor and make you yearn for surrealistic filmmaking such as this. Nobody does it better."
Very good

"one of the best of it's kind. if you know rollin's work and appreciate it but haven't experienced this one then do yourself a favor and definitely give this one a look. if you don't know rollins then you should be warned that this is not just your typical horror flick. nobody does it like jean rollin and for fans this one delivers!"
Surreal tale of fantasy and obsession.
Chadwick H. Saxelid | Concord, CA United States | 04/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Lips of Blood is the story of one ugly (I'm talking Masculine Medusa) man searching a suddenly nightmarish world (inhabited by vampires and their sadistic hunters) for the mysterious woman he met, and fell in love with, as a young boy. There are some truly gorgeous moments in this (a dead photographer sprawled out in an aquarium display is a masterpiece of stylized blocking) and some that are just plain weird (a naked vampire shouting nonsense at the edge of a cliff). Recommended for those who like horror surreal and moody. Those who want action and/or plot are better off looking elsewhere."
