3.0 out of 5 stars Gothic vamp film with a flair for the visual April 30 2004
Format:DVD
This movie is quite different from the usual Jean Rollin film. There is practically no nudity or blood or softcore eroticism. It is tamer however it is visually more impressive than most of his other works. So those who prefer to watch Rollin films for purpose of atmosphere, elaborate sets and artistic value might find this to be one of his better efforts.
Two blind young women enter "Les Glycines", a religious orphanage in rural France. Apparently, the two lost their sight at a very early age and for no apparent reason. Assigned to the case is Dr. Dennary, an expert eye specialist who seeks to unravel some of the reasons for their condition. Little do the doctor and the nuns in the orphanage know that at night, the two girls can see just fine. At night is when the two girls turn into vampires and sneak out of their bedroom window to scour the orphanage's external surroundings for human blood. After a while, Dr. Dennary and the two orphans will relocate to Paris in an apartment, which suits the two orphans just fine since in the city the streets at night are a haven for fresh blood...
"Two Orphan Vampires" captures a good 70's eurohorror vibe but with a modern look and minus the grainy picture. There is precious little gore effects in this one, besides a sickening scene involving the throat-ripping of a dog in a cemetery. Mostly it's just a few blood capsules dripping down the orphans' necks when they kill a victim. There is only one scene of nudity, where the two orphans (who barely look older than eighteen I might add) bare all at dusk during one of their night crawling expeditions. Despite the absence of nudity and blood (or action, for that matter) what kept my eyes glued to the screen was the amazing sense of atmosphere Rollin created.

4.0 out of 5 stars because they were blind... Dec 23 2003
Format:DVD
this may very well be the most tame jean rollin film ever made. in fact, you could probably watch this one with the whole family. two orphan vampires is actually based upon jean rollin's vampire novel trilogy although most of the story will come from the first two entries in the series. while this isn't his greatest work, it's indeed one of his more sophisticated works with terrific acting & enough surrealistic dialogue to satisfy most hardcore rollin fans. two orphan vampires does recall some of the childlike innocence of rollin's earlier & more popular films but almost completely avoids any erotic or sensual activity which would normally predominate his great works. at times, we are reminded of the childlike innocence of requiem for a vampire although the stories have little in common. it should be clearly evident after seeing the interview that rollin would consider this to be one of his most personal efforts right beside requiem. as with any great cult director, fans will & probably have flocked to the orphans with little hesitation or perhaps know the lines backwards & forwards. i'll admit i am great fan & admirer of mr. rollin & this film does indeed get better with each & every viewing. while the film does have it's moments of outrageousness or ridiculous elements, fans will adore these blind twins who only have vision in the dark. i don't believe we are clearly meant to understand where these beautiful ones came from but we get the feeling they never truly die. or if they should happen to die, they will always manage to come back into our world & end up together again. if you aren't a true fan of rollin, you will probably not care too much about this film but you may actually love the beautiful cinematography of the twin towers in new york.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still at it Oct. 7 2002
Format:DVD
It's nice to see that time has not diminished Jean Rollin's obsessions or eye for the macabre. In this relatively recent film, shot in NY & Paris, Rollin continues his fascination with vampires, in this tale of two girls who are blind and normal by day, but sighted blood-drinkers by night. This film is perhaps not quite as hallucinatory as earlier efforts, notably Shiver of the Vampires, but it still has the dream-like acting and hypnotic atmosphere that is typical of his mise-en-scene.
And the girls are quite adorable, whether tapping their way in a cemetery or ripping out some guy's throat on the Brooklyn Bridge.
The film is also a nice companion to Le Fiancee du Dracula, another recent effort, which mixes Rollin's ideas with a bit of Clive Barker, and features the splendid Brigitte Lahaie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Silly Jan. 11 2003
Format:DVD
Two vampire girls are blind, but only in the daytime! How on earth they ended up in a orphanage (oh, that's right, they're orphans!), but surely this one, run by nuns, must have driven them nuts with all the religious imagery around.
Anyway, there's very little vampire imagery, except when they feed briefly from each other.
The dialogue is terrible. They're in a graveyard ambushing someone. A young couple going there to make-out , see them hiding. One says "Look, they are evil creatures!" like they can spot them a mile away.
Very, very silly.

4.0 out of 5 stars This proves Rollins still has IT Oct. 10 2002
Format:DVD
This film felt very slow to me, and was almost hard to get through, but when it was finished I felt good about it. Now looking back I love it. Hey! Wait! Thats how I feel about all Rollin films [except Requiem and Demoniacs] I loved them instantly!
