Before he brought us the Blind Dead
4 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got Fangs of the Living Dead as part of a 3 DVD set including 9 living dead films. Having seen the first two in Amando De Ossorio's 'Blind Dead' series I had a feeling I was in for a treat, if a minor one. What I saw clocked in at 73 minutes, so obviously I did not get the uncut version which usually I would prefer. But honestly despite the short length I quite enjoyed this great little piece of Gothic Eurohorror trash.

Pros: Vibrant colors. Beautiful locations, especially the very spooky castle, where most of the action takes place. The score, which is permeated by organ music, is excellent. Just about every Gothic horror cliché in the book is present here and most still work. Aside from a couple spots that drag, the pace is even and fast. Some good atmospheric moments. The actor playing the count is the best actor of the bunch.

Cons: Some of the dubbing is poor, especially Anita Ekberg's. The pace drags in a couple spots. Lacks originality. Most, but not all, of the acting is mediocre at best. One very poor bat effect.

Final thoughts: After seeing vampire films such as 'Blade' and 'Van Helsing' where the vampires are more cool than scary, it's nice to see a more classic approach to the vampire subgenre. This film won't win awards for best screenplay or acting, but if you love Eurohorror as much as I do then this might be up your alley.

My rating: 3/5
