At the end of the film, "Fin--ou peut etre pas," appears on the screen. It's French for "The End -- Or Maybe Not." See more »
The UK Vipco DVD release is identical to the old cinema print which was cut by the BBFC to remove a shot of a woman cutting her breast with a knife to feed a child and shots of blood running down her arm during a syringe injection. See more »
I wasn't really expecting Grave Of The Vampire to be very good. I bought it because I found it in a bargain section for only a couple of bucks. I must say, that it was well worth what I paid for it. Grave Of The Vampire has one of the most atmospheric graveyard scenes that comes to mind. Weird lighting, fog, and sinister music really make the opening scene in an old cemetery quite effective. Michael Pataki makes a great vampire. Actually, he looks like a zombie vampire during the opening scene, which I really liked. The film is very dated, so don't go into it expecting it to be comparable to something like Blade for example. However, for a good, spooky night movie it certainly hit the mark.
