Product Description


Euro-horror cult director Jean Rollin dives into science fiction with an ultra-low-budget picture that resembles nothing less than Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor by way of David Cronenberg. Though it starts out in classic horror fantasy fashion, with a beautiful young woman (Rollin regular Brigitte Lahaie) in a flimsy nightgown rushing breathlessly though a dark forest, the imagery quickly changes tone when she is returned to the mysterious, antiseptic skyscraper asylum known as "Black Tower." Blank-eyed inmates with dissipated memories wander through the featureless white hallways and empty rooms, helpfully making up stories for one another to stand in for their lost pasts. Like in most of Rollin's films, the story is more fascinating before the exposition and explanations, when the ambiguous conspiracies and the stark landscapes create an unsettling, alienated world out of time and place. The wooden acting is transformed into an asset, a dazed cast of shuffling living zombies somewhere between shock and stupor slowly losing their minds. In true Rollin fashion, he takes time out for gratuitous sex scenes and nudity and weaves a disconnected series of gory murders into a story that never really makes sense in the first place, but the ethereal, poetic imagery creates an enigmatic psychodrama more concerned with mood and texture than narrative. The new Redemption release restores two scenes cut by the producers for its theatrical release. The DVD features the theatrical trailer and a gallery of production stills. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

Stylish, futuristically surreal and a departure from director Jean Rollin's familiar vampire territory, THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTED is Rollin’s contribution the excess of the 1980’s horror genre, complete with plenty of sex and gore. In the not-so-distant future, the residents of a skyscraper asylum are suffering with insanity and collective amnesia. As blank-eyed inmates wander the halls and empty rooms of the "Black Tower", the tension rises… as does the body count!

5.0 out of 5 stars another great rollin masterpiece Sept. 16 2003
if you're looking for something strange that will hold your attention & keep you glued to the screen until the living end, you just might be ready for night of the hunted. rollin's great masterpiece will leave you shaking your head in disbelief but never fails to amaze & excite. those of you gore hounds who just seek out some blood & guts, you will probably find more with his endeavor living dead girl. there is some blood here but the atmosphere is what will grab you & shake you. in the chilling tradition of eyes wide shut or memento, rollin gives you the full effect of paranoia & loss of memory. the film does make sense contrary to what many have wrote here but you have to view this film carefully & look for the hints. in the end, night of the hunted reveals it's dark secrets & the ending is sure to burn it's way into your thoughts for a long time. although we find no vampires here, it's evident that rollin is a serious director & treats his subject matter here with greatest of care. this film will not appeal to folks who tend to avoid pyschological horror or explicit sex. as with most rollin films, night of the hunted isn't intended for all audiences. the film start out with a young girl in a flimsy gown walking in the woods & then a flash of carlights stops her dead in her tracks. the guy naturally picks the girl up & offers to take her home but she can't remember who she is or where home is. in the next scenes, we see she's been taken back to this mysterious tower by a strange man & woman where it seems everyone has lost their mind or they are in the process of losing their minds. here we find a sad building of people struggling to make sense out of the world they are living in or their confusing lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Static psychological horror. Nov. 10 2001
By A Customer
This excellent film deviates from Rollin's vampire obsession in favour of a "parnanoid" tale of urban horror. There isn't much action, but the plot is unnerving.
At times, it seems like Rollin is doing a fine imitation of the early Cronenberg (RABID and SHIVERS come to mind).
As with other REDEMPTION DVD's, this lacks any interesting extras. But again, as with all the Rollin films in this series, the print is of the best quality.
A quirky film that should not be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superdope. April 20 2001
Jean Rollin is one of the most interesting directors alive. The Erotic-horror genre is higly underrated, and needs more attention brought to it. The post-apocalyptic sphere of this movie is undescribable, and the long erotic scenes are downright fantastic. Still, my favourite scene has to be the girl with the scissors in her eyes, and the dude who rapes a girl and then gets beaten over the head with a blunt object. The ending is a knock-out. Only the cool ones will understand. Takk for meg.

4.0 out of 5 stars A weird and disturbing nightmare. April 16 2001
A group of people being held captive in an apparently empty skyscraper are slowly loosing their minds. They are not going insane, their memories and personalities are simply, and slowly, being erased. The whole movie plays out like a surreal version of David Cronenberg's Shivers (aka They Came from Within). This movie really weirded me out and robbed me of a good night of sleep. It took me quite a while to shake the effect off, so I recommend it heartily.

2.0 out of 5 stars New to Jean Rollin . . . Aug. 24 2000
By Tom E
As A huge Argento fan I decided to try out other European directors from the "Euro-Horror" movie genre. This movie tried to be everything from soft core porno to "b" grade horror . I've been told that this is not indicative of his other movies, and I would hope not . I will try other Rollin's movies in the future but will be very cautious in purchasing them . The DVD itself is actually very well done , I just wish they had done a better job on the movie .

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Underappreciated June 18 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Everything I've read about this film fails to appreciate its worth. To me it's a brilliant study of consciousness free of memory in the tradition of zen and tantra. It also reminds me of films by Antonioni and Robbe-Grillet which explore those same meditative dimensions.
