@LoudLon - I've only now seen three Jean Rollin flicks, but so far Living Dead Girl is my favorite.
Two Orphan Vampires (1997) - 7/10
Silly and cheesy as all hell, but still a really enjoyable movie. My biggest gripe with the film is that it runs on too long. The pace of the film falters and makes the movie seem a bit uneven. If it had been cut ten, maybe even fifteen minutes, it would have been just fine. That said, I had a good time with this one. The story is about two (yep, you guessed it!) vampire orphans who are blind and innocent by day, and who are full of vision and viscous blood-lust by night.
One silly scene in particular which made me laugh pretty hard: The two girls sort-of-but-not-really "bite down" on a dog in the cemetery, supposedly drinking its blood for their own vampiric nourishment. The camera shot shows the girls lowering their heads, then cuts to them raising their heads with blood dripping from their mouths. Then we see the dog lying on the ground....wherein one can clearly, obviously see it is still breathing just fine (as its stomach is moving up and down rhythmically), and yet its tongue is half-way hanging out of its mouth and the thing is supposed to be dead as a door nail. You have to watch the scene for yourself to understand its hilarity, I guess.
