The Movie

A california artist, possibly a reincarnated vampire, takes to killing his models; some he dips in wax, others he mutilates and makes a painting of their bodies. One or two get drowned, paintd as if asleep. One shows fang marks.

Though our hero / villain / who knows / who cares? does a fair bit of running after beautiful women to pad out the film, and some interesting underwater stunts when trying to drown them, we only twice see the fangs, and zero evidence of any other vampire signs.

This is a bad film, and - contrary to some reviews - it is not a frightening film. It's a boring film. And that's saying a lot; it was cobbled together from all sorts of scraps by (at least) three directors, working for that shining light of quality movies, Roger Corman. You'd think such a mess would be impossible to predict? Wrong; you can see each 'suspense' moment coming for half a mile, and the ending is so predictable I could cry.

Wikipedia generously (and a little crawlingly) gives quite a detailed history, which is actually more fun than than the movie!
