Cult director Jean Rollin's most unusual and haunting film was this poetic tale of two young lovers (Francoise Pascal, Hugues Quester) lost in a cemetery overnight. With only one set, two characters, and a hallucinatory style which could provoke unintentional laughter in some audiences, the film was a commercial disaster. Quester was so embarrassed that he had his name taken off the credits, where he is now listed as "Pierre Dupont." Still, as time passed and audiences grew more sophisticated, the film's uniquely peculiar atmospherics have gained it a cult following, and some even consider it on a par with the original Carnival of Souls as among the simplest and creepiest of macabre films.
