Ancient Vampires need the Most Attention
25 November 2007 | by (Satan's Colon) – See all my reviews

CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the title given this movie on the copy I watched, is a bit misleading in that the term "living dead" typically signifies a zombie flick. This is not, of course, a zombie film, as any of the alternate titles (HANNAH: QUEEN OF THE VAMPIRES, for example) would correctly suggest that this is a vampire movie. It was released in Spain and apparently dubbed into English, although some of the actors were very obviously speaking in English.

As a vampire movie, CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD is fairly interesting after one gets past the first forty or fifty minutes. It begins with an archaeologist exploring a 700-year-old crypt, coming across the tomb of Hannah (Teresa Gimpera), an ancient vampire. He doesn't get far before two guys (cultists?) come along and kill him, stuffing him under the tomb and breaking the tomb's legs. Flash forward a few days, and the archeologist's son, Chris Bolton (Andrew Prine) arrives on the island to deal with his father's death. After being shown where his father died, he is told that the tomb is far too heavy to be moved. Bolton then arranges to have the tomb taken apart, so that they may remove his father's body and give him a proper burial.

Unfortunately, Bolton's father had the misfortune to be buried under a tomb that most of the locals knew was occupied by a horrible, yet extremely sexy, vampire queen, and Bolton has a great deal of difficulty getting assistance in taking the tomb apart. Although he doesn't believe in the vampire legend, once they crack open the coffin and the 700-year-old woman looks closer to her mid-twenties, Bolton gets involved in the action to stop her. She does get an opportunity to terrorize the island a little bit, but her movement rate is far too slow and she has to rely upon her sheer sexiness to draw any victims near. While this movie does have its problems, I have to say that Hannah's death scene was genuinely eerie and unique.

My copy of this movie comes from the "Chilling Classics" 50 movie boxed set, but it should be known that this movie probably could be found online for free. Fans of vampire movies should get a kick out of this, and general fans of horror may enjoy it as well.
