The Shiver of the Vampires 04/15/23
A Jean Rollin film scores a first 4K disc release before Bava, Franju or Fisher; we review the Blu-ray edition. Once again dipping into free-form softcore Ero-horror, the French filmmaker imposes his improvisatory style on a fairly conventional vampire story, embracing the lesbian trends of the day (night). Should we be surprised that Rollin is one of the few French directors to consistently work in the horror field? To stay in business, he had to alternate his feature output with straight pornography. Also available on 4K Ultra HD. On Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
