Trivia:
There is a smiling skull-and-crossbones insignia on the posters and lobby cards, with the words "Recommended by Young America Horror Club". There was no such organization; it was an invention of producer K. Gordon Murray to boost ticket sales.See more »

Vampire looking for payback, 30 March 2014
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Vampire's Grave is the second of two films concerning the character that German Robles played in the first film. The film is from Mexico and apparently it has a certain cult status that has thoroughly escaped me.

This is the kind of film that Universal Pictures used to do so well and I suspect had it been done there where they mastered the art of Gothic horror, it would rate a lot better from me. German Robles is no Bela Lugosi, he's not Christopher Lee either.

This vampire is dead and buried in his grave with stake plunged through his heart when some scientist decides to steal the body for experimentation. Pull out the stake and you've got troubles as Robles remembers all the people who did him in in the previous life and film. He's out for a little payback.

Universal did these so much better.
