El misterio de Cynthia Baird aka El retorno de los vampiros is an ultra- cheap exploitation picture. It was shot in one location in Madrid in the early 1970s and then sat on the shelf for more than a decade. It was finally released in 1985 to cash in on the video rental boom. It has a cast of four, little action and no thrills or chills. It seems to be a talky meditation on marital relations in Spain during the sexual revolution. When one of the two main actors looks at a copy of Goya's Saturn Eating his Sons, they fall into a trance, sprout fangs and attack the other actor. This silliness is accompanied by clips from Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique seemingly chosen at random. The sound editing is so poor that you can hear the needle drop on the recording. There is some plot about the main actors really being long dead lovers, but it is undeveloped. Director Jose Maria Zambalza specialized in bottom-of-the- barrel westerns, gangster pictures and comedies. He is best known for The Fury of the Wolfman, the worst of Paul Naschy's werewolf series. Naschy had nothing good to say about him. El misterio de Cynthia Baird is talky, unimaginative and almost fatally dull.
