Jean Rollin 1938 – 2010


French filmmaker passes…

There were rumblings of Jean Rollins’ passing yesterday, now Fangoria has confirmed the filmmaker has died at the age of 72.

Mixing blood, sex and sleaze, Rollin has had a long directing career giving us The Nude Vampire, Living Dead Girl, Caged Virgins and more.

Fango editor Chris Alexander, one of the biggest Rollin fans I know, spoke to the filmmaker’s son, Serge, who said: “Jean was surrounded by his friends and was looking at the photos of his two granddaughters when he died.”
