Horror - Jean Rollin R.I.P.

I'm a couple of days late to this (due to the debate on the internet on whether he had actually died or not), but RIP to Jean Rollin.  Auteur to such art-house Euro classics such as Fascination, Curse of the Living Dead and Les Frisson des Vampires, he shaped European horror throughout the sixties and seventies - as well as shaping my video collection.  If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't know that French and Italian noblewomen wandered around Chateaux naked, whilst gazing wistfully at newlywed brides.
The idea that vampires were all models for Chanel was completely unheard of, so for that at least, I thank him.
