“Some of the most indelible poetic images and surrealist sequences of the horror cinema.” – Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog
“… [a] vexing piece of psychedelic nonsense…” – Robert Firsching, Rovi
A newlywed couple stop by an ancient castle to visit the bride’s two cousins before embarking on their honeymoon. They arrive to terrible news! The two men are two-days-dead! The next day, the cousins mysteriously show up, dismissing their deaths as a village rumour. All is not well…
A grandfather clock; a goldfish bowl containing a skull, a deadly spike bra; terror; lust; a human sacrifice?
Kicking off the September film-cycle ‘Tide of Non-Human Life’ at Sugarhouse Studios, we present The Shiver of the Vampires (Le frisson des vampires), a magical and eccentric film by Jean Rollin. Driven by a complete disregard for rational plotting, this detached and dreamlike vampire fantasy combines piercing black humour, red gels, outrageous aquamarine backlights, pigmented fogs and a generally crazed chromatism in ninety-five minutes of poetical, erotic, and visually inventive exuberance and delight!
