The Anchor Bay release of the film is in English, also dubbed in English to clean up the Spanish accents of the actors attempting English throughout. It is not likely that a Spanish language version of this film exists. See more »

It's also a great exploitation film. Pop culture battle of the sexes in which age old vampires use modern wedge between husband and wife to work its way between them. There is one really silly scene on the beach which stands out in this otherwise smart and lurid, justified luridness, but lurid in a good way story and film. At times you side with the wife at times with the husband. It is really one of the last "modern" vampire films to really fit much social reality into the vampire framework of seduction and betrayal. And talk about a tough film, this takes no prisoners, be they animal or child if it gets in the way of the male hero look out. Good production values on all levels, perhaps the score could have been better but that's looking for problems where not many exist. Still shocking violence, sex, and style does mesh the source material with a very European man threatened by modern woman story. A number of memorable scenes, one of the better versions of Carmilla. A must see. The dubbing into English is a bit better than usual for the time which helps too.
