CINEMA BIS BELGE: LES DEMONIAQUES
BE/FR, 1974, 35mm, VO FR, 77'
This year in Cinema Bis Belge, our mini-module of Belgian cult and genre cinema, we explore the marine theme by plunging back into the archives of Général Films, Jean and Pierre Quérut’s film company, dedicated to the co-production of genre films with a B to Z label.
Two women make a pact with the devil to avenge their rape and murder in this erotic thriller by the legendary Jean Rollin, who infuses it with his customary dreamlike imagery and pastel coloured chiffon. Co-produced by Brussels-based Général Films; atmospheric Belgian locations include the ruined Abbaye de Villers.
