Jean Rollin's twins of evil Fascination (1979) and Requiem Pour Un Vampire (1972) Previously unreleased full soundtracks!
New twin soundtrack of vintage French synth experiments and free-rock from art house femme vamp film director Jean Rollins. Comprising key scores by two of his regular collaborators, and bookending his most creative and lauded decade, the release of two original soundtracks to French director Jean Rollin's Fascination (1979) and Requiem Pour Un Vampire (1972) mark Finders Keepers’ latest release in a series of tributes to 'Frances first-ever vampire film director' and a long running patron of the Paris underground theatre, comic art and alternative literature movements.
An early exponent of the growing trend of synthesizer music in horror soundtracks, Philippe D'Aram and his 1979 score for Jean Rollin's Fascination treads the same ground as early John Carpenter and Suzanne Ciani film music while maintaining an essential Gallic charm shared by a young Jean-Michelle Jarre or Philippe Besombes.
Having previously provided music for an under the counter Rollin sex film called Jeunes Filles Impudiques the obscure Pierre Raph's energetic drum and organ based soundtrack for Requiem Pour Un Vampire from 1972 earns its place around the feet of other French Horrotica soundtracks like Francois De Roubaix’s Levre Rogues or British soundtracks to Psychomania by library music ensemble Frog.
