Product Description

One of cult director Jean Rollin's most successful and commercial films. Cut to bits by Britain's state censors, this is the rarely-seen complete version. "The Living Dead Girl" takes in resurrection, despair and a desperate addiction to blood. A dark, beautiful and tragic film presented here in all its gore-filled glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gross and reprehensible April 21 2004
Jean Rollin is a name instantly recognizable to hardcore horror fans, but meaningless to nearly everyone else. This ignorance is quite unfortunate because this French director concocted some of the sleaziest, most unusual films ever made during the 1970s and 1980s, films usually imbued with a disturbing mix of hypereroticism and bloody violence. I have often tossed Rollin's name around in impolite company with seeming aplomb even though I had never seen even one of the man's films. You read enough plot synopses about someone and you start to feel as though you know every intimate detail about their work. What I did hear from others about this director oftentimes did not bode well. He is apparently well versed in schlock filmmaking--which in and of itself is not a problem with me, a true lover of bad cinema--but several of his films continue to draw raves from a selected minority of genre fans. Well, I finally sat down with a Jean Rollin film, his 1979 effort "Fascination," and was pleasantly surprised with the results. As I viewed the film with a growing sense of intrigue, I began mentally composing a list of other films from this director that I should watch in the near future. First up is Rollin's 1982 gore opus "Living Dead Girl."
"La Morte Vivante," or "The Living Dead Girl," is a shocking tale of a girl raised from the dead against her will, her ravenous hunger for human blood, and the childhood friend who acts as her enabler. Catherine Valmont (Françoise Blanchard) unfortunately passed away at a young age and was buried in a crypt with her deceased mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars rollin's most commercial masterpiece Sept. 8 2003
for those of you unfamiliar with rollin's works, living dead girl isn't a bad place to start. well, rollin's fans will love this too! although this is perhaps his most accessible or commercial work to date, this film may be a bit gory for those who are more accustomed to subdued, atmospheric horror films. the film starts out with a group of men who are dumping toxic chemical containers inside a vault where mother & daughter are both buried. surprisngly, both cadavers look quite fresh considering they've been dead for atleast a couple of years! for some strange reason, the chemical brings daughter back to life & she attacks the workers who've brought the chemicals & proceeded to rob their coffins. she then decides to return to her childhood home where inevitable memories flood her mind where she is overwhelmed with a great sadness. coincidentally, a childhood friend calls the house & the living dead girl picks up the phone. as the livng dead girl is unable to speak, she plays a music box for the friend on the other end. needless to say, the childhood friend comes running to the chateau in almost disbelief & suspense only to find two dead bodies when she arrives. as the film progresses, the friend makes a decision to help the livng dead girl become stronger by luring innocent victims back to the chateau or attempting to kill them herself. as one can easily assume, the murders here are quite gruesome in the fulci or romero style but should please fans of true zombie horror. unlike previous rollin films, living dead girl delves more into the pyschological or melodramatic & tends to avoid eroticism or gratuitous nudity/sex. on the other hand, rollin supplies more gore than you would normally see in his average film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent but overrated March 23 2003
By Blurb
This film was highly recommended by all reviewers so I bought it and tried it out. It was a good film overall but I was disapointed in a way. The film just didnt have a great climactic tone to just push it over the edge. The movie was however very different than the average zombie films I have watched over the years. One of the drawbacks to this film was it was just too slow paced. I have a sense that the director did it on purpose to give it an odd and chilling feel to the atmosphere. The director also tried very hard to make it sad and while it worked to some extent I just dont think he made his point across. You didnt really feel sorry for the "living dead girl" because you really didnt get to know her and why she was so sad. He tries to explain this with some flashbacks but were just ineffective to make his point across. I'm sure the translation and low budget always has a problem with this but the director should know this. Having said so, usually it must be done with good acting which it was somewhat effective but not really since it is a B film and high paying actresses are not affordable or done with a lot of action sequences in which there was but it was in spurts. So it sped up then slowed down at times to give you a few seconds of gore and excitement followed by long lulls in the film.
The storyline however is not totally original, so a good film must be made up with lots of action in which it was only in spurts as stated above. In fact, if you watch closely the storyline similarly follows the many zombie films that start with a toxic reaction that wakes the dead (in which after 2 yrs of being dead she, the living dead girl, looks pretty good--I also have to say she is actually goregeous for a B-flick zombie movie actress).
