THE GRAPES OF DEATH
LES RAISINS DE LA MORT
1978, Kino Lorber, 90 min, Dir: Jean Rollin
Pop the cork and pour yourself a glass of vintage French horror from one of the most sublime masters of the genre, Jean Rollin. Traveling to Roublès to move in with her fiancé at his vineyard, Elizabeth discovers that the locals have become flesh-eating zombies as a side effect from a pesticide used on the grapes. Now she must find her fiancé amongst the infected townsfolk or succumb to the living death herself. A dreamy mix of psychedelia, sexploitation, horror and gore best served in a dark movie theatre and enjoyed one delicious sip at a time.
In French with English subtitles. | Screening format: digital
