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>

A True Classic
28 February 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Any one who calls themself a horror fan should have this in their library. It is a true classic. While it is painfully slow, It place as a low budget flick and the devotion of Paul to the old-time horror feal makes this more of a labor of love, than a b-movie. It was made to have an old-time Lon Chaney feeling and I think that works. You just cant find a movie of the same calibre as this anymore. Anyone patient enough to sit through it with out pushing fast forward will definatly find a new favoraite. Waldamar isn't your average hell's-fire werewolf. He's been isolated too long. He's tragicly desperate to be around people to the point where he takes an almost subservant demeranor to the cop. He beleaves that he is damned and somehow less than human, when he is infact, much much more.
