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.
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.
