Jean Rollin's latest film La Nuit des Horloges, starring the wonderful Ovidie, is now out as a limited edition DVD in France. Here is a scan of the disc which looks to have an interview with Rollin as a bonus. Hopefully a British or US release will be on the way soon featuring an English subtitle option.
Also, in very exciting news, it is true that Rollin is working on a new film entitled The Mask of Medusa and a terrific five minute behind the scenes reel can be viewed below. I know that most of us thought that La Nuit des Horloges was going to be our guy's last film so word of this new work is very thrilling indeed. It is also great to see Rollin looking so healthy and vibrant in these behind the scenes clips.
There is also a new print interview up with Rollin at this link that I invite everyone to check out. This page also contains some terrific behind the scenes shots from the upcoming film.
Also, in terrible news, it looks like the future of Redemption films is in question. Here is a link to that article...thanks so much to the readers that pointed these links out to me.
Finally, I wanted to take a moment and explain why posting here has been so sporadic as of late. I recently started a new full time job and my time on the computer has been very limited. Rest assured though that I will continue to pay tribute to the cinematic exploits of Jean Rollin here so thank you for your patience and continuing support.
