Jean Rollin at Spellbound Cinema and in Sight and Sound


Daniel Orion Davis has written a really splendid piece on one of my favorite Jean Rollin films, Night of the Hunted, over at Spellbound Cinema and I wanted to invite everyone to check it out. Davis writes that Night of the Hunted, "is due for serious reevaluation, especially among the director's fans", and I completely agree. It's an excellent piece on one of Rollin's most haunting films.
Also, I have been informed by a kind reader that Tim Lucas has a piece on Rollin in the newest issue of Britain's prestigious Sight and Sound magazine. It's great to see Rollin finally recognized by the type of publication that typically ignored his work, or treated him with disdain, during his life.

Night of the Hourglass is Back in Stock over at Diabolik

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Diabolik has some more copies of the Region 2 DVD of Rollin's Night of the Hourglass back in stock. I am still hoping for a Region 1 release of this eventually, but I figured those reading here who have systems that can play Region 2 might want to jump on this. Diabolik also has the Finders/Keepers Thrill of the Vampires CD in stock as well as some of the out of print Encore box-sets!
