The Iron Rose (DVD)
Gothic horror directed by Jean Rollin. A young couple decide to take a walk through a cemetary, and descend gradually into madness and hysteria when they are unable to find their way out.
In this chilling cult classic from iconic director Jean Rollin, a young couple decide to take a walk through a cemetery, descending gradually into madness when they are unable to find their way out and become lost overnight.
Featuring just one set and two characters, the film has a hallucinatory style and it is this combined with its peculiar atmospherics that has gained it the cult following it boasts today.
Creepy, macabre and inescapably Gothic, this was a total departure from Rollin’s typical style as his only film not to feature Vampires, ghouls or overly supernatural elements.
“The Iron Rose is a haunting experience – a macabre poem about youth and age, love and nihilism, nostalgia and superstition, and above all, life and death” – Twitch
