PhilaMOCA hosts a screening of Jean Rollin's 1979 cult classic FASCINATION in celebration of Spectacular Optical's book release of LOST GIRLS: THE PHANTASMAGORICAL CINEMA OF JEAN ROLLIN. Book editor Samm Deighan will introduce the screening with a talk on Rollin.

Canadian micro-publisher Spectacular Optical is pleased to announce a new book focused on the career of French fantasy and horror filmmaker Jean Rollin, LOST GIRLS: THE PHANTASMAGORICAL CINEMA OF JEAN ROLLIN, penned by all women critics, scholars and film historians. This collection of essays covers the wide range of Rollin’s career from 1968’s LE VIOL DU VAMPIRE through his 2010 swansong, LE MASQUE DE LA MÉDUSE, touching upon his horror, fantasy, crime and sex films—including many lesser seen titles. The book closely examines Rollin’s core themes: his focus on overwhelmingly female protagonists, his use of horror genre and exploitation tropes, his reinterpretations of the fairy tale and fantastique, the influence of crime serials, Gothic literature and the occult, as well as much more.

FASCINATION (1979):
In turn of the century France, a thief on the run takes refuge in a remote castle occupied by two young women. Thinking them harmless, he decides to take the girls prisoner, unaware that he has stumbled across an all-female cult of aristocratic blood-drinkers in this innovative and erotic twist on the vampire genre.
