3/10 **/5 ~ Vintage Mexican Vampire opus with spooky atmosphere but poor comedy.
15 October 2002 | by Doctor_MabuseSee all my reviews

Échenme al Vampiro (1963) (Bring Me the Vampire) is an unfunny "spooky comedy" set in an Old Dark House and reminiscent of The Cat and the Canary and Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians/And Then There Were None.

The film is contemporary to, but no match for, the classics of the Mexican vampire cinema (notably Fernando Mendez's El Vampiro/The Vampire (1957) and El Ataud del Vampiro/The Vampire's Coffin, and Alfonso Corona Blake's amazing Santo Contra las Mujeres Vampiras/Samson vs. the Vampire Women) which are rich in shadowy atmosphere carefully modeled on the Hollywood Gothic films of the 1930's and 1940's. Students of international mid-century genre films might enjoy the pleasantly spooky visuals.

The low-budget film is one of dozens of Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction films imported to U.S. television and kiddie-matinées by American entrepreneur K. Gordon Murray with unintentionally humorous dubbing done at the infamous Soundlab Studios in Florida (where people must have been literally dragged off the street to do the readings).
