Lips of Blood features a strong transfer, with excellent clarity, detail and sharpness in the majority of shots. Softness and muddiness creeps in on some low-light shots, but mostly, the transfer is clean and film-like, with only some light speckling showing up every now and again. Audio is reasonably clean and clear throughout.
A slighter crop of bonus material on this disc, with only a short Rollin intro and an interview with Perrey included alongside the trailers and the booklet.
Probably the most straightforward and narratively traditional of all five of these films, Fascination stars Jean-Marie Lemaire as a roguish thief who betrays his partners and holes up in a chateau to escape from them. Convinced of his own charms and intelligence, he encounters two women (Brigitte Lahaie and Franca Mai) preparing the place for a gathering later that night. He’s sure he can have his way with the women easily, but his confidence is subverted as the power dynamics shift and the two women reveal themselves to be part of a cult — not vampires but attracted to the taste of blood nonetheless.
Similar to the Lips of Blood transfer, Fascination only stumbles in darker moments, where detail and clarity drop considerably. Otherwise, it has a pleasingly high-def look, marred occasionally by some significant but brief tearing, rippling and flaring that affects the elements. Audio is just fine, with a little crackle and hiss, but perfectly clear dialogue.
The extras here deviate from the interview-heavy portions of the other discs, presenting two extended soundless sex scenes filmed in case Fascination needed to be marketed as a softcore film (Rollin faced this kind of meddling often) and a profile of Rollin from British TV show Eurotika! Trailers and the booklet are also included.
