Virgins and Vampires: The Expansion of Gothic Subversion in Jean Rollin’s Female Transgressors

I have written about Jean Rollin’s virgins and vampires for The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies (Issue 18, Autumn 2020), looking at the way in which they develop the subversive aspects of the persecuted maidens and fatal women of 18th- and 19th-century Anglo-Irish Gothic novels into the 1960s-70s.

Jean Rollin’s films are now available to stream on Redemption TV.
