Salvation Films

Salvation’s origins can be traced back to 1993, when founder Nigel Wingrove started up a film distribution label under the name Redemption Films. Since then, the company has broadened its scope to include the distribution of music and literature.

  • Fascination

    Jean Rollin, 1979
    This is director Jean Rollin at his best; visual delights, sensual, lesbian love-making, the beautiful Brigitte Lahaie as a scythe-wielding avenger and a group of castle dwelling bourgeois women addicted to drinking blood. The story centres on two women, chosen by the group, who have to find a man that they can ritually slaughter and communally consume in a cannibalistic vampiric feast.

  • Marquis De Sade's Justine

    The Marquis de Sade's name gave the world the word sadism: the love of inflicting pain while deriving sexual pleasure from the act. The publication of Justine led to de Sade being imprisoned for the last 13 years of his life after Napoleon Bonaparte described it as the 'most abominable book ever engendered by the most depraved imagination...

  • The Nude Vampire

    Wealthy industrialist Georges Radamante (Maurice Lemaitre) has dreams of immortality. Not through his own achievements, but by finding a way to share the biochemistry of the mute, orphaned vampire woman (Caroline Cartier) who has been raised by hooded needle-stickers in isolation, deprived of exposure to human faces.

    Radamante’s son Pierre (Olivier Martin, Rollin’s real-ilfe brother) innocently complicates matters while trying to infiltrate his father’s private club. It is love at first sight and Pierre determines to liberate his beloved, a gaol which attracts the companionship of other vampires, who plan a torch-carrying siege of Radamante’s palatial compound.

  • The Living Dead Girl

    The Living Dead Girl (La Morte Vivante) is the story of Catherine Valmont (Françoise Blanchard), a wealthy heiress dead before her time, who is accidentally reanimated when some unfortunate movers attempt to store drums of chemical waste in the neglected burial vaults below her uninhabited chateau. Rollin’s "living dead girl" does everything that cinematic convention requires – she kills people, drinks human blood, devours human flesh – yet for all this, we accept her as an innocent. Meanwhile the effect that her resurrection has upon her childhood friend, Hélene (Marina Pierro), is infinitely more conscious, deliberate, and evil.

  • Sacred Flesh

    A tale of a Mother Superior, devout and chaste, who is suffering mental turmoil as her mind throws up increasingly extreme sexual, theological and hellish imagery which both tempts and terrifies her!

  • I am the Ripper

    Taking violence to a whole new level, I am The Ripper explodes out of the screen like The Matrix on crack! Fast, furious and relentless, the Ripper is death himself, let loose on a party of teenagers. The sole survivor is then challenged to a duel to the death in order to live...

  • The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine

    Pursued by soldiers, having been accused of heresy, Esteban (Paolo Malco) seeks refuge in a
    nearby convent - the same convent to which his girlfriend Lucita (Jenny Tamburi) has been banished
    by her parents. In order to be reunited, Lucita must resist seduction by her lesbian cellmate
    (Bruna Beani), endure the deranged torments of the Inquisition, and escape from a madhouse
    within the convent walls. Esteban, meanwhile, contends with the advances of a sensual abbess (Françoise Prévost).

  • The Rape of the Vampire

    A psychiatrist (Bernard Letrou) ventures to a remote castle to convince a brood of four vampire sisters that they are misguided, brainwashed by superstitious villagers, and not truly creatures of the supernatural. The villagers (including director Jean Rollin) confuse and abuse the sisters, before finally storming their castle. The cast descends on a hospital run by a young doctor (Jean-Loup Philippe), charged by the Queen of the Vampires (Jacqueline Sieger) to discover a cure for vampirism. This bewildering action culminates in a 'blood wedding' presided over by Sieger, in her regal hot pants, on the legendary stage of the now-defunct Theâtre du Grand Guignol.

  • The Demoniacs

    The story follows two young girls, the survivors of a ship-wreck, who are raped and beaten by a band of pirate-like cut throats. Left for dead, the girls, who are sexually empowered by a supernatural being hidden in nearby ruins, re-emerge to seek their wrathful vengeance upon their predators. Violently sexual and imbued with French surrealism, Rollin's film is not for the faint-hearted!

    Erotic yet elegiac, tragic and dreamy, Demoniacs is rightly upheld as a Rollin fan favorite.

  • School Girl Hitchhikers

    Best known for his erotic horror films, such as The Rape of the Vampire, Lips of Blood, and The Living Dead Girl, French filmmaker Jean Rollin frequently indulged in the softcore (and occasionally hardcore) sex film.
    Among the more personal of these films is SCHOOLGIRL HITCHHIKERS (Jeunes filles impudiques), which reflects many of the themes and fascinations that run through his esoteric body of work.

    Joëlle Coeur (Rollin’s Demoniacs) and Gilda Arancio star as a pair of lovers enjoying a blissful cross-country hike. But the carefree erotic film turns suddenly dark when the women are set upon by a band of thieves who think they have stolen their loot, and use sadistic means to force a confession.

    Please Note: This film periodically suffers from an unstable image, due to a camera malfunction during the original production.

  • Visions of Ecstasy

    Visions of Ecstasy, a short, 19 minute, experimental art film made in 1989, is the only film ever to have been banned outright in the UK solely on the grounds of blasphemy. Further its depiction and interpretations of the erotic imaginings of the 16th Century Carmelite nun, St. Teresa, were such that the films banning was upheld in an historic judgement at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in a case that took seven years to reach its conclusion. Now, due to the abolition of the UK's blasphemy law in 2008, Visions of Ecstasy is finally being released.
