The village of naked bloodsuckers.
24 December 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The action of "Curse of the Vampire" takes place in a small rural Spanish village.Sexy Dr.Dora Maeterlick arrives to a nearby castle to cure the father of Baron Carl von Rysselbert from a strange blood disease.Her sexy assistant Erica falls in love with Carl who turns her into vampire via sucking her blood.Vastly entertaining and colorful vampire flick with a bit of full-frontal nudity and lovely lesbian scene.I have seen Jose Maria Elorrieta's "Feast of Satan" too and I enjoyed it more than the previous reviewer."Curse of the Vampire" is nothing special,but if you are a fan of Hammer vampire flicks or Euroexploitation you should give this one a try.7 lesbian vampires out of 10.
