Night of the Hunted

Night of the Hunted

Directed by Jean Rollin

In French auteur Jean Rollin’s high-rise horror tale, a woman is pursued by the staff of a mysterious clinic after escaping. When Elizabeth (Brigitte Lahaie) is rescued by Robert, she can’t remember who she is or what she’s running from. In between bouts of passionate sex, Robert quickly realizes Elizabeth is deeply damaged. But by who - or what? Soon they both find themselves on their way to the secret sanitarium, hoping to discover what caused her memory loss. Fans of early David Cronenberg flicks like STEREO and SHIVERS shouldn’t miss this underrated chiller.

After escaping from a mysterious clinic, a woman is pursued by the staff.

Cast: Brigitte Lahaie, Vincent Gardère, Dominique Journet

Classic French 70's, Classic Rollins. Do doctors make things better or make things worse?

A long, slow burn that will delight fans of 70s French films and bore those looking for action and violence. There's little gore, lots of darkness, lots of nudity/sexuality and much mystery. Once the mystery is more or less resolved, the rest feels a bit tacked on. Depicting Sex assaults that double as cinematic exhibitionism (or opportunities for the audience to play voyeur) are not OK in my book, but they were fairly typical in horror and action films at the time, sadly. This middle of this film is a keeper.
