Storyline

Elvira is travelling through the French countryside with her friend Genevieve, searching for the lost tomb of a medieval murderess and possible vampire, Countess Wandessa. They find a likely site in the castle of Waldemar Daninsky, who invites the women to stay as long as they like. As Waldemar shows Elvira the tomb that supposedly houses the countess, she accidentally causes the vampire to come back to life, hungrier than ever. Daninsky has a hidden secret of his own, but will it be enough to save the two girls from becoming Wandessa's next victims? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Positively one of THE most stunning werewolf or vampire films ever made!
17 February 2002 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Despite the low budget of this 1971 Spanish film, Wolfman vs. The Vampire Woman (Noche de Walpurgis) is a stunning and marvelous film to watch. The color and shot composition are amazing (along the lines of Bava or Argento) and the main charachter (played by Paul Naschy) is THE most ferocious wolfman I have ever seen. I am not necessarily a fan of werewolf movies, but Naschy's performance is truly gifted.

The sex appeal of the movie is perfect for the time. Breasts are exposed at the drop of a hat, and it actually adds to the tone of the film. Wolfman vs. The Vampire Woman esily competes with all but the best of the seventies Hammer Films, and surpasses most horror movies that have ever been made.
