fine gothic-horror film from Mexico, 24 August 2003
Author: django-1 from south Texas USA

This review is of the English-dubbed, K. Gordon Murray presentation of the film as THE BLOODY VAMPIRE. From the first frames--with a slowed-down horse-drawn carriage almost floating through the fog-shrouded trail, the soundtrack containing an eerie wind punctuated by a slow churchbell and wolf howling--you know you are in the hands of filmmakers who know how to capture a disturbing setting of gothic horror. While this film does have some slow talky moments, I would rate it among the finest vampire films of the 60s, equal to the best ones coming from Italy and the Philippines. Director Miguel Mortaya is a master.

The SWV video (which may no longer be available, for legal reasons) is from a fine print, and contains the outlandish and LONG K. Gordon Murray spoken prologue with a swirling, headache-inducing spiral on the screen.

If you were to buy only one of the K. Gordon Murray mexican horror imports, this may well be the one to buy. The film is so visually stunning that even those who dislike dubbing may be able to get past it here and let the film's shadowy images wash over them.
