Actually not too bad
29 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fascination with vampires may be as old as the mythology itself. They've been the subject or countless films, books, television shows, video games, and who knows what else. Just about every country has made their own films about everyone's favorite bloodsuckers, but not always successfully. There are many genre gems from Britain, but other European countries like Spain have taken a crack at it. This little known feature is a take on the Dracula legend and features many of the staples we've come to known and love. It's hardly a classic, but you really could find much worse.

Pros: Adequate performances. Nice eerie score. Lovely Spanish scenery. Beautiful production design. A few genuine frights. Some really spooky imagery, especially in the last few moments. Director Javier Aguirre does a good job of creating atmosphere and injecting the film with some style.

Cons: Virtually plot less. Badly dubbed in that most of it isn't in sync with the actors' mouths. Too much exposition, which includes some really annoying narration. You've seen this all before a hundred times. Most of the film moves at a really slow pace, often painfully so.

Final thoughts: I watched this as part of the 'Elvira's Movie Macabre,' which is a really fun way to watch it. Unfortunately the print is not in the best shape, but you can see and hear what's going on well enough. It's not something I'd go out of my way to find, but for fans of silly and melodramatic Horror, including European, I'd recommend giving it a go.

My rating: 2.5/5
