The Old Woman:
[singing to Lila]
There was an old woman all skin and bones, Ooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh. And she did weep and she did moan, Ooooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh. She walked on through the streets of town. Ooooh-ooh-oooh-ooh-ooh. Where all the dead lay on the ground. Ooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh. Then turned and to the parson said. Ooooh. Will I look like that when I am dead? Ooooh. The parson to the old woman said... BOO!
[Lila screams, the old laughs hysterically]

This movie is a classic on so many levels. I watched an interview with the director where he said he thought he did everything wrong due to inexperience, however, all the things he thought he did wrong--filming at night, using a 1930's setting, low budget, and religious overtones--only served to make this movie the classic that it is. There are truly scary moments and the soundtrack is so creepy you remember it years later. The makeup is wonderful because the vampires truly look like the rabid creatures that they are. The scenes of the child vampires are truly creepy and scary.
The basic premise is that Lemora, a female vampire, lures an innocent young girl to her town by telling her that her father is ill. So the girl goes to the town, at night of course, and finds to her horror that the town is full of rabid vampires. I say rabid because something seems to have gone wrong here. Lemora herself does not understand why her vampires have gone rabid, like some infection turned them into the horrible creatures they have become. It is just a great plot. Rent this movie, buy this movie, just see it. It is simply the best in classic horror.
