Le Frissons Des Vampires 

Those were years of couples who went around and entered into wrong castles. Years of people who found themselves with all the cornerstones altered. And Jean Rollin too has two that he disrupts life. Perhaps needless to say he does it with the vampires, to which he adds a little 'pagan myths, a bit' of lesbianism, but less erotism than the previous two films.

The french director, however, carries with him something from his past films, such as the concept of sect and revolution of the "Viol du Vampire" and the usual beach in Brittany.
As usual he choose very well  the locations, creating with castles and cemeteries a a really impressive Gothic scenario. But unfortunately , "Le Frisson Des Vampires" slides, as well as the other two films, in the artistic performances of the actors, who manage to flatten each possible depth of the characters.

And this is the fatal flaw in a movie that apart from some high and low structural points, could be a good sexy horror, and a criticism of society as well as "La Vampire Nue". Instead, we stay bit 'disappointed by everything or if you prefer, only fascinated by the soundtrack, a kind of white rock/blues very intense and vy a couple of situations such trash to be "cult".

Among these, worth the long vision of the movie (1'36 "), there is the exit of a vampire from a pendulum, which seems a bit a Mornau's solution. There is a murder with a pointy bra (?) And there is an escape that is made so grotesque that seems a comedy sketch.

With his slow hand and his good cinematography Rollin sometimes, offers good images that drive the story of Ise and Antoine. On their honeymoon they decide to stay in an old castle inhabited by two cousins ​​of the girl. They are a bit  strange these relatives middle-aged, and look like hippies exhausted and spend their time in strange rites and discussions on ancient religions. Antoine starts to worry, to fear, while Ise relives the family air becoming conquer by a mysterious woman (the one that comes out of the pendulum).
Soon the couple turns out to be a protagonist in this strange place where death and life are one.
Rollin then tries to trigger events in the last ten minutes of film using situations already used.
"Le  Frission Des Vampire" exercises in each case a certain charm in vampiristic particular vision of the director. It isn't at the levels of "La Vampire Nue" in style and plot, but, as usual, it's a nice pastime.

Uncles are played by Jean-Marie Durand and Jacques Robiolles, two French actors of great experience, only familiar faces here, out of the Rollin's cinema.
