More than 50 such films included A Sailor's Journey (1963), The Rape of the Vampire (1968), Shiver of the Vampires (1971), Requiem for a Vampire (1972), The Iron Rose (1973), Lips of Blood (1975), The Grapes of Death (1978), The Night of the Hunted (1980), Zombie Lake (1981), Sodomanie (1984), Emmanuelle 6 (1988), Killing Car (1993), Two Orphan Vampires (1997), Dracula's Betrothed (2002), La Nuit des Horloges (2007) and The Mask of Medusa (2009), his last. Born Jean Rollin le Gentil, he died from cancer.
