Another horror icon sadly gone...RIP poetic French director Jean Rollin, who created some of the most surreal, atmospheric, erotic and beautiful horror films ever made. I remember buying David Pirie's 1977 book The Vampire Cinema while on vacation in Cairns (Far North Queensland) when I was a kid, and was mesmerized by the stills and poster images from Rollin's films that were in it...I was in love with his films for years before I even got to see any of them, and when I finally did I fell in love with them all over again and in a totally different way...
