Nice mysterious town story falters at the end, 17 October 2013
Author: Aaron1375 from Alabama

I got this movie on a collection of 50 films...all in the public domain. So, I guess I should not be too disappointed with the film, but it started out so promisingly. Of course, one of the main problems with the film is the title I watched it under which is The Vampire's Night Orgy which kind of removes any mystery qualities this film may of had. Instead, we are already told what is lurking within the town, but it still plays out interestingly enough at first as I was wondering what was the deal with the mysterious countess and what was going on at the cemetery. What kills this movie is they do not really address any of this, which means the makers of the film brought stuff up they would never really explain which is going to detract points from me.

The story has a bus load of people headed for a town where they are apparently going to be working at a mansion or something. They are a group that consists of a limo driver, a maid, a tutor and the like. Why they did not make these people tourists or something is a bit baffling as the fact this people are servants is not really used much either except to make them tell others that they are in a hurry. The bus driver dies from a heart attack and the group drives to a nearer town to figure out what to do and to rest. They find a town that is devoid of people. They spend the night there anyway as the inn is nice and inviting and one of their group encounters some of the townsfolk during the night. In the morning, the group is being served breakfast as the town is full of people. Something dark is going on though, and it may be already too late for the group of stranded travelers.

It had its moments, but I did not care for the fact that so many things the film brought up were never addressed. The film also had a strange elevator mixed with 70's porn soundtrack that really detracted the film as I was getting a headache during certain points of it. I also did not care for scenes that lingered on too long such as the hide and seek one that seemed to have a payoff as the little girl witnesses something horrible, but she never tells anyone. A surprise or two near the end, but it also just kind of falls apart at the end as well. I did find the film a bit humorous during the stretches where the vampires had to do some interesting things to get meat for their guests though.
