Very well done.
19 June 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I know I've commented on this film before, but my first review made it seem like this was just another movie that I like. Actually, it is so much more than that. The fact that it is actually a couple of films edited together is enough for you to try and find this (it is very rare.) I have the version under the title "Track of the Vampire", which apparently has more footage than the original release in 1966, which was under the title "Blood Bath", and although people say it's confusing, it's rather easy to understand, although the foreign footage is sometimes obvious. This is one of my favorite movies, to say the least. There is something about this certain vampire film that I like more than the others, maybe it's just how it's put together, or how it is sometimes bizarre. The credits were a little strange, or at least how they are listed in movie guides: certain actors are listed as main stars although they have lesser roles. The acting wasn't bad, nothing oscar winning of course, but it wasn't horribly wretched or anything like that. Roger Corman was involved in this, and he did a fine job. When the film was originally released, it was double-billed with "Queen of Blood", which also used footage from a foreign film (a Russian sci-fi.) Now, to say that the film is very scary or exciting would be a lie, but it is entertaining. In fact, it is so entertaining that you should try and find it on video (although I don't think it has been legally released on laser disc or DVD.) The one thing that I really don't understand is why Marissa Mathes was credited before Lori Saunders even though Saunders was the only one to survive in the end and was in it more than Mathes. Another thing about the credits, why isn't Karl Shanzer listed in some movie guides, he seems to be the hero in the film, although there is no particular real hero. Like I said, my print was the one with more footage, so it might seem a little strange. But despite that, you should go out and find this film, because it is somewhat forgotten today, which is un-fair, because it is very well done.
