At the 12:20 mark, kneeling over the entrance to Hannah's tomb, Chris is wearing a white turtleneck. In the tomb the turtleneck is brown. But the white turtleneck returns in the next scene after they ascend from the tomb. (Possibly explained by director Ray Danton filming additional scenes at a later date.) See more »

Below average vampire film
11 July 2008 | by mvescoviSee all my reviews

Andrew Prine's father is crushed by the marble tomb of a 700 year old vampire, and Prine goes to retrieve the body which is still under the 3 ton tomb. this is just a set up so he will open the tomb and release the beautiful female vampire. It is a very low budget movie filmed in Turkey of all places,is pretty slow, and some of the minor actors can't act. The film does have a good low key performance by Andrew Prine (I don't think he every turned in a bad performance), some good sets, some creepy atmosphere and s somewhat better ending that i expected. I would like to see the original version to see if it is better than our reworked and greatly shortened version. You can tell the original footage from the newer footage.
