Jean Rollin&#39;s Les Raisins de la Mort (The Grapes of Death) is often classed as a zombie movie, but it&#39;s actually more along the lines of an &#39;infected&#39; film (a la The Crazies, 28 Days Later), featuring human &#39;monsters&#39; who have not risen from the dead, but who are slowly deteriorating, physically and mentally, due to chemical contamination, their unfortunate condition driving them to kill.<br/><br/>Pesticides sprayed on a vineyard are responsible for the outbreak, the workers having breathed in the fumes and the locals having drunk the contaminated wine produced from the harvest. One of the vineyard&#39;s infected employees boards a train and attacks two friends, killing one and chasing the other, élisabeth (Marie-Georges Pascal), after she pulls the emergency cord and runs away. The remainder of the film follows élisabeth as she wanders the countryside, trying to find the vineyard where her fiancé works. Along the way, she encounters several crazed villagers, a blind girl called Lucie (Mirella Rancelot), and two men who only drank beer at the local festival, and so are unaffected by the illness.<br/><br/>Rollin successfully conjures up quite the creepy atmosphere, making great use of the rugged French countryside (élisabeth running across a foggy railway bridge is like something out of Silent Hill). His approach is measured - perhaps a little too slow for some - but he punctuates the funereal gloom with bursts of graphic violence guaranteed to satisfy the gorehounds, grisly highlights including a topless woman pinned to a kitchen table by a pitchfork, and another victim nailed to a door before having her head chopped off with an axe.<br/><br/>This being a Rollin film, there is gratuitous nudity to go with the splatter: there&#39;s the aforementioned topless pitchfork victim, Lucie being stripped by her crazy aide Lucas (Paul Bisciglia), and sexy Brigitte Lahaie, who steals the show as &#39;La grande femme blonde&#39;, obligingly removing all of her clothes to prove that she isn&#39;t infected.<br/><br/>A suitably downbeat ending closes what is easily the most entertaining Rollin film I have seen so far.<br/><br/>7.5/10, rounded up to 8 for IMDb.

IF NOT the best ever, and the ancestor too. You had Georges Franju&#39;s features, but that&#39;s another kind of approach of horror. Of course, there are some ankward moments and acting elements in this film. And that belongs to its charm too, such as this blind woman walking alone in the landscape, that&#39;s so improbable !!!<br/><br/>But what I found very interesting is those two men chasing the infected, two men explaining how they were at first involved in all that mess; as the Ben character in Georges Romero&#39;s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Yes, I loved those two characters and I would have loved to know more about them. And it&#39;s also very interesting to hear one of them, the youngest, speaking about people behavior during WW2, when France was occupied by nazis. The man explains that there was a difference between résistants, patriots and anti Nazis; does that supposes he was a communist, fighting against facism instead of only defending his countryland? . Why talking about that subject in such a film? Like this...I guess the screen writer just wanted to put here a kind of message.... Funny, interesting but not bad at all.<br/><br/>I really love this film. Especially the ending. Far better than most of &quot;infected&quot; or zombies films made since a decade now...

Though not up to Rollin&#39;s ROSE OF IRON (1972) or THE LIVING DEAD GIRL (1981), this is still pretty good - forming with the latter and ZOMBIE LAKE (1980; which I haven&#39;t watched) a very loose trilogy.<br/><br/>Still, it&#39;s not strictly a zombie film (as the &#39;monsters&#39; here aren&#39;t flesh-eaters and don&#39;t even rise from the dead!) - though it carries much the same kind of menace as LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE (1974), also largely set in the countryside and displaying a concern for ecology in the modern world. As with many of Rollin&#39;s work, this is actually more of a hypnotic mood-piece with very little dialogue: languorous, often lyrical and undeniably haunting. In this respect, the dreamy cinematography (which is sometimes out-of-focus) and the simple yet agreeable score (despite the admittedly grim subject matter) emerge as indelible assets to its ultimate quality.<br/><br/>The film is quite gory and the ending downbeat, but Marie-Georges Pascal&#39;s bewildered heroine generates genuine audience sympathy - even if it&#39;s a fetching yet duplicitous Brigitte Lahaie (inexplicably unaffected by the plague which is ravaging the village) who steals the show with her brief but striking role!
