Vampires vs Cannibals
26 July 2017 | by shawnblackmanSee all my reviews

Two brothers head off to fight in the Civil War. They survive the war but end up bitten by a vampire, which in turn changes them to vampires. They decide to grow some crops on their land with some recently freed slaves to get enough money for a potion that will change them back. They run into trouble of course, with the man who owns the town. Land claims and prejudices, starts off the feud.

A few genres are blended to give us one crappy movie. John Savage plays the rich owner who spends most of his time drinking and barking orders. This is probably his worst film yet although he was in Bermuda Tentacles.

The whole film just had a hokey vibe. You got the Night Walkers (the vampires) and the Eaters (the cannibals) who are constantly doing battle with Savage conducting everything. It does seem that the vampires always win. Not much in the way of effects just some vampire teeth and the odd red stain. Just avoid this one and you might have a more fruitful life.

4 shipping crates used as coffins out of 10.
