A Gem

A fan of the late night horror, black and white genre, a fan from early childhood. The title to this movie is tantalizing of itself. The date of production early 60's adds another level to curiosity.

The campy movie is undeniable every cliché is in this movie. Don't go down this road. Don't leave the castle. Don't leave your room. You are for a surprise as the girls are beautiful and you care for them with little to no character development.

Maria Giovanni (Katia) early demise leaves one scratching his head. The end of the movie, you realize that Pierno Regnoli crafted a minor masterpiece.

Erika Di Centa dance performance rivals Salma Hayek's From Dusk to Dawn performance.

The dialogue is campy and compelling with dashes of comedy interwoven.

This is not your typical vampire movie; Dracula having side chick problem?

Scantily clad women, sensual dance number and a minor plot twist: worth the late night or rainy afternoon.
