La Nuit des Horloges Now out on DVD in France and More News


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.

Making Of Jean Rolin "Le masque de la méduse" from ChoYou Productions on Vimeo.



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.

This is terrific news about Rollin's latest -- and thanks for the great behind-the-scenes clip.

Mr. Rollin is looking very fit and full of enthusiasm.

I wish this great filmmaker only the best of health and success.

Good news coupled with some bad news as it appears Redemption (due to release Rollin's SCHOOLGIRL HITCHHIKERS) went out of business.

That's extremely bad news about Redemption!

Jeremy Richey said...

Ugh, that is terrible news about Redemption. Not only was I super excited about that SCHOOLGIRL HITCHHIKERS disc but I was supposed to have a blurb on the back of it. I hope that everything works out...

Didn't like too much "la nuit des horloges" but overall i'm not the greatest fan of Rollin!
The film is still very much a Rollin film,with some nice shots,a slow pace and Ovidie fits Rollin's world rather well!
