Plot
The Grapes of Death is one of the most mainstream films of Jean Rollin, which doesn’t mean your mother will approve. At one point, you’re going to get boobs, and you’re going to get blood. You’re going to get them simultaneously. Just make sure your mom isn’t in the same room. The movie’s melodramatic, but it isn’t a soap opera. This is Rollin’s very own Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
This script is weak, and it took three people to come up with it. The execution is rough around the edges. We go from delirium to cacophony, unable to distinguish the good guys from the bad. The antagonists are undergoing a mutation that turns them into violent jerks. They’re not exactly zombies and they’re not just contaminated. They’re uber ass holes with cheap make-up.
I wouldn’t call the gore realistic, but you probably shouldn’t be eating hot dogs passed the first act. You shouldn’t be drinking wine, for that matter, because that’s how you turn into a revenant, or ghoul… or zombie, in 1978 France. This is a fucked-up movie, and there’s nothing quite like it. It is oddly paced, anticlimactic, poorly edited, and the dialogue is atrocious.
