Goofs

Like most traditional vampires Khorda is repelled by the sight of the cross, and is upset by Monk's Iron Cross necklace, which he tells him to take off. Monk never does, and is still wearing it later when Khorda attacks and kills him. How exactly Khorda overcomes Monk's protection is never explained. See more »

Monk: "You know what you all are? You're all a bunch of friggin' freaks and honkies! Every damn last one of you! I'm going to town to get me some steak and whiskey!"

Actually, it's quite good for the 70's
27 September 2003 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure if I would like The Deathmaster or not, since I really didn't personally care much for the Count Yorga movie. I liked some of Robert Quarry's other work in films though, so I figured I would give this one a shot.

I must say that I liked it more than I thought was possible. It has a distinct and unmistakable 1970's cheesy "vibe" running rampant throughout the movie. That actually works in favor of the movie, it gives it an authentic flair of the era. The story is nothing too fabulous or original, but it was the visuals that intrigued me. The cinematography work on The Deathmaster was well above average.

So, it's a pretty good vampire flick of the early 1970's. Definitely worth a look for both Quarry fans, and also for Vampire aficionados.
