as cheesy as it can get, 17 October 2012
Author: trashgang from Midian

As cheesy as it can get. Really, this is terrible but is a must have for so many horror buffs. The only way to see this Spanish horror is on VHS. It never had a proper release and is only available by DVD-R sellers or on 'Excellent' VHS, a Dutch label. And even then it goes sometimes over 100 dollars. I have found it in excellent (no pun intended) state on a flea market for almost nothing.

The acting is terrible and even the script sucks (again no pun intended). The vampire catches his victims not by his fangs but he strangle them. But it's a must see for the effects. The vampire do attack invisible. So you can guess how the victims move without seeing the vampire, really cheesy. There's also no blood to see just only when the stake is put into the hart of the vampire and even that is done by editing.

But why it's watchable is the fact that all girls strip nude before they are killed. A boring flick with gratuitous nudity.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 2/5 Effects 0/5 Story 1/5 Comedy 0/5
