Liked this one. This is only the third Argento movie I've seen, and this might be my favorite. Yes, even more then "Suspiria".

Inferno rules. Honestly, I think the 80's may have been the best decade overall for Argento as a director. My personal favorite (overall, not just the 80's) is Phenomena, but Tenebre shouldn't be missed either.

Thanks for the reccomends. There is a whole section on Netflix in their instant watch section on Italian horror. I've read a lot of articles on these movies, on the "giallo" films that Argento and others made popular back in the 70s/80s but have not seen many of them. Also I love 80's horror generally speaking. Definately for American horror, but it seems it was a great decade for Italian horror as well.

The Shiver of the Vampires


 



 



 



 


French vampire flick - absolutely brilliant from start to finish. A new favorite, for sure. I don't think I've ever seen a film master such strong Gothic imagery with such a psychedelic palette of colors. Reminds me a lot of the trippier Hammer flicks.

One of my favourite horror movies ever. Spot on about the Hammer connection. You can also tell that Rollin was hanging out with all the guys involved with the nouvelle vague. Brilliant film.

Saw "Shiver of the Vampires" available on Netflix. Caught my interest, but is it really that good? Is there more to it then mere softcore titillation? Is is scary at all or is it all about the nudity?

It's not scary at all (as vampire films rarely are) but definitely far more than just mere titiliation. It's more of a kind of Bunuel meets Hammer thing, with some nudity thrown in. I'd recommend any Jean Rollin movie from that period, but I'd say Les frisson des vampires is my favourite of them all.

There's a lot more to it than the nudity. All sorts of really neat shots, camera movements, disorienting use of foreground/background, etc. I just used the best images I could find with a quick Google search. The soundtrack is also quite bitchin'

If you're gonna like it, you'll fall in love within the first 10 minutes or so. The first shot is KILLER.

I watched this one on Netflix too, be warned that the subtitles are a bit sloppy.

Also - what Demonrail said.

DMNR66 - any Jean Rollin recommendations?

Rape of the Vampire/Le viol du vampire - His first film and a bit of a mess but ithas everything a Rollin film should: a beach scene; no logic whatsoever; hippie vampires; nudity. Even by Rollin's standards, though, it's pretty much all over the place. Recommended but by no means his best.

Requiem for a Vampire - Another one for the die hard. The first half hour has no dialogue and features two girls wandering around dressed as clowns. Very dream-like but undeniably a bit boring, too.

Demoniacs - Rollin's attempt at making a pirate movie, which inevitably becomes a vampire movie pretty quickly. I know people who absolutely despise this movie but for me it's one of his best.

La Vampire Nue/The Naked Vampire - Visually very good but I remember giving up on the plot fairly quickly. If you liked Le frisson, though, you should like it. It's got a neat sort of James Bond thing going on.

Fascination - Brilliant. The horror theme is fairly low key and it lacks the madness of Frisson but in many ways this is Rollin's best and almost certainly his most polished film - relative to other Rollin movies, obviously. It also includes probably the most iconic Rollin image ever:


 


Zombie Lake - Even among fans of 'Eurotrash', this seems to get a really hard time. The problem is it has one great scene, when the nazi zombie come out of the lake, but nothing much happens after that. The story is that it was some kind of collaboration gone wrong between Rollin and Jess Franco, with both disowning it. I like it but of all his pre-80s films, it's probably his worst.

The Iron Rose - Probably his artiest and most dreamlike movie but as beautiful as some of the scenes, the film itself can be a bit of a chore to sit through. Great but very much something you need to be in the right mood for. (Although that's probably something you could say about all his films.)

I tend not to like anything he did after those. Some of the later ones have the odd good scene but generally it's his late 60s-70s stuff that I really love.

I don't know if I prefer it to Suspiria but I'd say the scene in the submerged house is the closest Argento came to matching the first 20 minutes of Suspiria - which is, admittedly, pretty much unmatchable.

I'm a big fan of Todd Solondz. I thought this was pretty good. Its not as shocking as "Happiness" but it doesn't need to be. Its still got his brand of dark humor.

So yeah I'm actually just starting out with Godard.





Definitely see "Weekend" and "Band of Outsiders". Both films, besides being two of my Godard faves, will blow you away with the amount of cinematic language and images that have been etched into future films.
