What are people saying?

  • ZYNAB's rating of the film The Blood Rose

    a unique premise executed badly...there are too many characters with too little to them to care about...the film would have benefited from there being less characters with more importance ascribed to each...the visuals are very inconsistent; kind of switching between jean rollin drab and messy hammer-type camp...i wish anne had been the main character instead of her wimpy old 'tortured artist' husband!

  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Blood Rose

    Là où Georges Franju nous entraînait dans un malstrom d'horreur, de poésie et de folie, Claude Mulot bégaie et piétine lamentablement dans une lourde réalisation, parsemée d'un peu d'érotisme bas de gamme et de quelques symboliques reliquats d'un fantastique mal digéré, pour finalement s'enliser dans l'incongru et le saugrenu comme une piteuse et nauséeuse mouche à merde sur son étron

  • João R.'s rating of the film The Blood Rose

    While the premise is compelling and the setting of the story is magnificent, none is sufficient to elevate this rather simple and inconsistent little tale.
