Vampires And Hippies
10 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a bit different for a vampire film - the idea of vampires and hippies together. The movie does have entertainment value for fans of vampires in film.

For a budget film it's pretty good. The acting is much better in this film than you'd expect. The story is interesting enough and the costumes and sets are good.

Robert Quarry make one creepy looking vampire - he's a bit scary in this one. He plays Khorda a mysterious man that ends up with a following of hippies.

Overall this is a fun vampire film - it may not be the best vampire film made but it's an entertaining one that is enjoyable to watch.

6/10
