Episode 469: Lips of Blood (1973)

Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Maitland McDonagh

French Month concludes with a look at Jean Rollin's Lips of Blood (1975). The film stars as Frederic, a man who, one night at a party, sees a photograph of a gothic castle that triggers a memory. He suddenly recalls a time when he was young when a young woman gave him shelter for the night. After that he's plagued by visions of her and feels the need to reconnect. Meanwhile, four mysterious women help guide him along the way to this reunion, despite the best efforts of his overbearing mother. Who is the mysterious woman from his past? Why does his mother not want them to meet?

Maitland McDonagh (Broken Mirrors / Broken Minds: The Dark Dreams of Dario Argento) and Samm Deighan (Lost Girls: The Phantasmagorical Cinema of Jean Rollin) join Mike to talk about Rollin, cinemafantastique, and Suck Me, Vampire.
