The Countess is called away to tend a sick friend and imposes on the General to accept her daughter Marcilla as a houseguest. Some of the villagers begin dying, however, and the General's daughter Laura soon gets weak and pale, but Marcilla is there to comfort her. The villagers begin whispering about vampires as Marcilla finds another family on which to impose herself. The pattern repeats as Emma gets ill, but the General cannot rest, and seeks the advice of Baron Hartog, who once dealt a decisive blow against a family of vampires. Well, almost.

In 2009, Ingrid Pitt write about how she got cast for her role in her column for Den of Geek. She said one night after being in Where Eagles Dare, she went to a reception at the Savoy. "I was a bit disappointed to be seated next to a man I had never heard of. He introduced himself as James Carreras (the head of Hammer Studios at the time) and we chatted amicably while I kept a roving eye on the room in case there was anybody there I could impress. My attention was drawn back to Mr. Carreras when he started saying nice things about my part in Eagles. I am always susceptible to a little flattery. I agreed with him and asked him what he did. He told me that he was a film producer. That got my attention and by the time we left the party I had an appointment to meet him in his office the following morning to talk about a film he was about to produce." She said she was wary because she'd heard it all before and wasn't sure if she should trust him. But she showed up at the Hammer offices the next morning and he cast her for Vampire Lovers. See more

They were all evil and remain evil after death.
The film was cut for its R rating and the old Embassy videos reflect this edit. MGM restored most of the footage for its 1999 VHS release, except for part of the opening decapitation and some nudity in the bathing scene. The nudity was found and added in to the 2003 DVD release, which now presents the film complete save those missing frames in the opening beheading. The UK DVD contains MGM's first restoration that was on VHS in the USA. The R1 MGM DVD contains the more complete edition. See more
