sorry for the mistakes!
"I want to feel Their bones breaking between my finger"
Rollin has great intentions, like those of his first films, for "Les
Demoniaques " defined by himself an expressionist movie. He tries to do a good work with a good story that is inspired by the classic
adventure's movies, with a good location and he is looking for aesthetics, a good cinematography in (almost) every frame.
this title brings with it a cursed fate and "Les Demoniaques "
it's a film not one hundred percent successful. Part
of the blame can not be attributed to French director but is the sum of
unfortunate events which undermine the quality.
of all, the title is changed from "Les Diablesses" due to copyright reasons,
then the producers Wallman and Quérut aim to save as much money as
the cast and crew, wanted by the production doesn't enter into
symbiosis with Rollin, is sorry because he can't works with Castel twins and at the end
of production he has to be hospitalized for too much stress.
All negative vibes, evident at certain times and perhaps guilty of some absurd choices that break down the film. We take
for example the beautiful Joelle Coeur, really bautiful, who passing eighty
percent of the film with her tits in her hand and the rest with someone
who touches them. A great vision, no doubt, but too redundant and absurd when
she has an hysterical crise and she pullout the already lightweight
dress, or when she have sex on the rocks with the chief of the pirates.
there are pirates among the protagonists of the a story that has as
its main theme in the revenge of two girls raped by them, and they ask help to a dark force that lives in a ruined church. Their
vengeance is relentless, announced by the host or the madam of a
tavern (which also ruin the surprise!) a place in which women are obviously
The bad guys then end up in a classic meat grinder of human lives, falling one at a time and in a not credible manner not credible. The
devil, however, as it is often called the being that lives in the
church, as well enjoy himself it's beautiful and as usual
he does nothing for nothing.
cast aside Joelle Coeur here the third and last participation in a
Rollin's film, has a faithful French director, Mireille Dargent that as
in "Vierges et Vampires " re- interprets a clown. To the well-known French actor Paul Bisciglia the role of a pirate.
