Storyline

The German police cannot solve the mystery of the seven murders which have alarmed the local villagers. They call in Inspector Doren of Interpol,and the only clue the Chief Constable can give the detective is the fact that, each time a murder was committed, the electric lights in the whole neighborhood went out. The locals believe that the killings of the young girls are linked to the vague shadows in the caves under the local castle and to the mysterious Curse of the Green Eyes. They distrust inspector and offer no assistance when still another murder takes place in the village inn---in the room next to that occupied by the inspector---and the body disappears. There are many suspects: the chattering innkeeper; the servant John ; the deaf-and-dumb Tom; and the inscrutable doctor, Profesor Adelsberg who has been issuing strange death certificates. Doren moves to the castle where Professor Adelsberg is carrying out some scientific studies. There, he meets the Professor's pretty ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A fairly traditional vampire film
15 August 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Six mysterious deaths of women aged between 18 and 22 years occur over the course of six months in a small, European village. Inspector Frank Dorin (Hoven) is sent to investigate. Thought by some to be murders, Dorin is informed by the village doctor (Mohner) that all of the deaths were natural. It seems that each seemingly healthy young woman died of heart failure. Many local residents believe vampires are responsible. A seventh death occurs in the inn in which Inspector Dorin is staying the first night he is in the village. Legend has it that two hundred years ago, a curse forced the vampires to take up residence in a well known grotto in the area. They are said to emerge at midnight every night, but can remain at large for only one hour minus one minute. Inspector Dorin must determine the true cause of the series of deaths before they become a public scandal and before more people perish. In many ways, this is a fairly traditional vampire film with a bit of humor tossed in. Fans of the genre should probably give this one a chance. It was filmed in black and white which many will find adds to its atmosphere. Actor Adrian Hoven who played the inspector is better known for his part in the making of "Mark of the Devil" (1970).
