The Movie

Elvira (Gaby Fuchs) has an essay to write on Countess Wandessa, famous for draining virgins of all their blood, so she and her friend Genevieve (Barbara Capell), zoom off to find her tomb, the kind of thing that students do all the time.

As night falls and they are desperate for somewher to stay, they arrive at the home of Waldemar Daninsky (Paul Naschy), and by an amazing coincidence, the tomb is on his estate. By another amazing coincidence, he's a werewolf. Which is just as well, as he's ideally equipped to fight the vampires ...

An oversimplified version of a labrynthine plot, but you get the picture!

Review

A lot of people sneer at this movie, and you can see why; the sound dubbing is sad, there are random people thrown in to pad out the plot (the mad sister, the handyman), and the vampire dentition reminds us that sabre-tooth tigers aren't the only creatures in need of a dental makeover (overbite or what?). Not to mention the dire makeup and transformation of the werewolf. I said NOT to mention!

As one reviewer put it "It features, unsurprisingly, a werewolf and at least one vampire woman engaged in an epic struggle to maintain the audience's interest. The audience loses."

But in amongs it all, it does have a certain Hammer-esque charm; the way every fight managed to expose a bit of female breast; the way that victims scream, but mostly just stand there while they get attacked; and the sheer cheek of the film makers in believing anyone could go along with such twaddle!

The DVD

No extras; often on a double bill with unrelated low budget horror movies.
