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>

Somewhat Entertaining Vampire Film
24 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say some of the cinematography is outstanding - deeply and eerily Gothic. At times it reminded me a bit of Nosferatu (1922). The way the vampire came creeping into the bedroom, black magic, the grotto and the spirits dancing around the fire for examples.

The film plays out like a horror mystery rather than pure horror. It is more or less a detective story and not a bad one. Of course this detective has a witch helping him get to the bottom of the mystery. In a lot of ways it's your average vampire story: do vampires really exist, some believe it while others don't, a search for the vampires, etc. So it's not a bad watch.

Curse of the Green Eyes, Night of the Vampire or Curse of the Living Dead -- some the names you can find this film under.
