“Is it the sadness that scares you?”

Basically a story of two young lovers roaming around on a cemetery they can’t get out of.

A dark poem hidden in a trashy low-budget art-flick. One of the best Rollin movies I’ve seen. The acting is very nice, and the settings is perfect. It is ultra-slow but intense. Worth a watch!

The Redemption release looks mighty good. Loads of extras, with commentaries, interviews and a nice booklet. Another dedicated release from the company.
