"...which are: The subject matter would usually lend for a visual feast. However Jean Rollin manages to be an ultimate bore when it comes down to the cinematography in this production. When we all know from "Rape of the Vampire" and "Fascination" that compelling visuals can be his strength. The lighting is flat, compositions plain.
The editing is sloooooow. Do we really need to see a guy walk across a field until he disappears into the horizon? In an end sequence maybe, however not in the middle of a story that already tends to induce sleep.
My favorite: the girl that shoots herself in front of an audience. No gun smoke, no jerky body movement, no blood.
The acting is as usual questionable however this is most likely not a priority when watching a Rollin film. The majority of costumes look homemade. Or completely pretentious.
