A toxic spill revives a beautiful, dead heiress (Francoise Blanchard) who, with the help of her childhood friend, must quench her insatiable thirst for blood…
“Even those not wild about Rollin’s earlier, abstract and sometimes nonsensical bloodsucker endeavors might enjoy what The Living Dead Girl has to offer. Though not as heavily surreal as some of his other films, it manages to tell a rather straightforward yet absorbing horror tale that’s both poetic and overtly grisly at the same time.” George R Reis, DVD Drive-In
“I guess this is Rollins most violent film too, a lot more graphic stuff than his other masterpiece Grapes of Death. The gore is bloody, disgusting, graphic and sometimes cheap – but it’s powerful, and it feels painful and terrible. This is poetry crossed with splatter, and it warms my heart and soul that a movie such as this one exists.” Fred Anderson, Ninja Dixon
