French title SUCE MOI VAMPIRE [Suck Me, Vampire]
director: Jean Rollin (as Michel Gand)
starring: Jean-Loup Philippe · Martine Grimaud · Eva Kwang
· Sylvia Bourdon · Beatrice Bourdon · Lionel Wallman
film was secretly made by Jean Rollin [he denied it for years] to cover
the boxoffice loses of LEVRES
(Lips of Blood) in 1975, using footage from that movie plus numerous
hardcore XXX scenes with some of the same actors,
shot in the same locations. The plot is different from Lips of
Blood. An alternative story is concocted here as the character
Frederick (Jean-Lop Philippe) becomes narrator for a tale of female
vampires who attack him when his car breaks down in the wilderness.
Jean Rollin initially denied involvement with this production because
Lips of Blood had been such a personal, delicate
project for him. And turning it into a Hardcore sex film may have seemed
demeaning. Despite the obvious clues [an abundance of shared footage,
same cast members in both movies, plus on-screen participation from
his producer Lionel Wallmann and Rollin himself (playing a hunter)],
Jean Rollin did not acknowledge this motion picture for two decades,
finally admitting it in 1998.
Kwang is a significant new cast member, playing the vampire who got
away... to become Frederick's personal sex servant [see disturbing pic,
below left, second row]. Ms Kwang would also appear in some subsequent
Rollin XXX endeavors. As mentioned previously,
when it was originally released in Europe (1975),
Lips of Blood was a boxoffice disaster [in retrospect,
many years later, it is considered one of Jean's best films]. But, at
the time, Rollin faced financial ruin and he agreed to create this version
for release to the Grindhouse market to repay his backers. Ironically,
Suck Me Vampire would gross much more money than the original.
It's success guided Jean Rollin into Hardcore, including PHANTASMES:
SEDUCTION OF AMY. For the next three years he made nothing but
XXX fare, finally returning to the horror genre
with GRAPES OF DEATH in late 1978.
