Progressive rock music by a band named Acanthus forms the backdrop as the husband watches his wife become further and further entrenched in the vampires' plans.
Unfortunately, however, The Shiver of the Vampires contains some of the most banal imagery in the Rollin catalog. Virtually all the scenes are brightly lit, destroying any potential for an eerie atmosphere.
The Shiver of the Vampires | Quad Cinema
Even the much ballyhooed scene where a female vampire emerges from a grandfather clock is clumsy and ludicrous. Vampire movies traditionally avoid showing vampires rise from coffins--because the sight of a vampire scrambling to its feet tends to negate the creature's supernatural allure so some movies give us vampires who swing up from their coffins as if spring-loaded and hinged at their feet. The sight of the female vampire awkwardly swinging her shoulders out of the clock's interior creates the same problem as vampires faced with coffins.
Newcomers to Rollin's cinematic universe should not begin with The Shiver of the Vampires. It contains occasional visual flourishes--a naked lesbian couple caressing on a fur blanket, a female vampire using spiked breast plates to kill a troublesome woman, a naked unconscious woman draped over a cemetery vault, etc. Walmart Only 4 left!
