The Velvet Vampire really could have been a good film; the plot is there, but the execution is really bad and serves only in making the film really boring for most of the duration. Things pick up a little for the final twenty minutes; but by then it's far too late. The film focuses on a young couple, Lee and Susan, who meet an older woman named Diane and agree to spend a few days with her at her place. However, Diane turns out to be more than what she initially seems when she at first tries to start an affair with both people; and eventually reveals herself as a vampire. The film really features very little vampire action, and it's a travesty that the word was featured in the title. The main bulk of the film concerns the interaction between the three central characters, and we end up with a sort of love triangle; although this is very dull indeed and most of it feels like padding - in particular the supposed-to-be trippy dream sequences that go nowhere. As previously mentioned, things do pick up a little in the final third when it is finally revealed that Diane is a vampire and what follows is really rather good; but not good enough to save the entire film. The Velvet Vampire is a rare film, and I'm confident that it will stay that way as there's no good reason to track this one down.
