A natural copycat of vampire movies with the erotic touch.
Considered to be a cult horror classic, THE VELVET VAMPIRE is a real gimmick at expressing this, and isn't much of one. Hammer Studios, notorious for British cult movie addicts, developed a new style of their own with female vampire movies, circa 1970. It appeared as though New World Pictures tried to duplicate their thoughtful ideas with this tale of a dark-haired beauty luring victims into her passionate traps. That explains it! Just get a lovely broad who can drive a dune buggy, use the familiar old "Dracula" approach, update the setting to "contemporary" form, and you have this, a rip-off of what we, as die-hard horror fanatics, have seen thousands of times before. There aren't a whole lot of horrifying chills, but it easily makes up for the erotic suspense thrills of Celeste Yarnall, the sexy seductress with an a-"lure"-ing personality. Predictable it is, until you run into one of the most ludicrous climaxes I've ever seen, which is based on the DRACULA legend! Ugh!!! Not a bad little erotic showcase, but DEF BY TEMPTATION and VAMPYRES would be better examples.
