Storyline

Introducing a devilish new spin to the sexy, twisted 1974 cult classic by Joseph Larraz. Vampyres is an up-and-coming remake roaring with raw eroticism, wicked sado-masochistic behavior and bloody, yet all so necessary, creative gore! Victor Matellano (Wax, 2014, Zarpazos! A Journey through Spanish Horror, 2013) directs this allegory set in a regal English manor occupied by two older female vampires and a man they have under lock & key in their basement. Their lives and lifestyle are suddenly turned upside down when three meddlesome campers come upon their lair seeking to uncover their dark secrets; a decision that has unexpected sexual but highly blood-curdling consequences. Written by Vincent Quinn Knight

Semi-exploitation but inferior remake , colorfully photographed , and dealing with a lesbian couple kidnapping hikers
17 August 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Spanish terror movie about two Vampyre women who cause dreadful murders , being originally directed by the Spanish craftsman Victor Matellano . It begins with a sentence by Teophile Gautier : ¨She sprang from the bed with the force of a savage animal directly to my wound , sucking my life's blood with undescribable voluptuosity¨. Blood-soaked erotic movie upon two gorgeous Vampyres coerce unsuspecting campers to their castle , a regal English manor , for a good time . Introducing a devilish new spin to the vintage movie directed by Joseph Larraz starred by Marianne Morris and Anulka . Here is told a similar story , a lesbian vampire couple (Marta Flich , Almudena León) who would waylay and kidnap various passers-by , both male and female , to take them captive at their luxurious rural manor . It is an allegory yarn set at a luxury mansion occupied by two tempting female vampires and a man they have under lock & key in their cellar . They ensnare victims with their sexy bodies , they lurk the rude woods preying on the innocent and the foolishly valiant to tread solitary , then chew their blood the old way . But their existences and lifestyles are suddenly turned upside down when three meddlesome hikers camping at a tent come upon their lair seeking to uncover their dark secrets . The campers inevitably , embrace their amazing fate as soon as to be aware that some legends are real . A decision that has unexpected sexual but ominous consequences .

This is an up-and-coming remake based on a classic movie by director José Ramón Larraz released in 1974 , a film called Vampyres . In fact , the film is dedicated and in Memoriam to Jose Ramon Larraz , master of arty gore and soft-core . Here Victor Matellano brings this ghastly and stylish story plagued with eerie intrigue , nudism , wicked sado-masochistic behaviors , highly blood-curdling scenes and murders executed in a creepy mansion . The gorgeous protagonists , Marta Flich , Almudena León , deliver the goods , they are are a pair of beautiful vampires who get victims to pull over by hitchhiking , then they proceed to bring them back to their house and drink their blood . Support cast is pretty good , including some grateful cameos as Caroline Munro , Fele Martínez , Antonio Mayans , Lone Fleming , Conrado San Martin and May Heatherly's last film .

This horror movie results to be entertaining but slow-moving , focusing two vampires abduct trippers and drivers , to hold them at their large mansion in the countryside in order to kill and feed on them to satisfy their insatiable thirst for chew their blood . Their starving wishes seem to carry out terrible deaths , which are impossible to stop . As they feed them wine , have passionate sex , and then stab them to death while drinking their blood . The alluring female Vampyres shared the pleasures of the flesh , bloody hungry , and the horrors of the grave . They unleash their fantastic skills and become even more violent and sadistic . A group that has not yet found a better place to remain attempts to find out the rare events leading to an old mansion in bloody results which end in death .

This frightening movie deliberately told contains thrills , chills , suspense , sleazy images and lots of violence and gore , including obnoxious killings . It is a straight horror film that features gallons of sleaze upon sleaze and a lot of sexualized violence . The screenplay is credited to director José Ramón Larraz along with Victor Matellano. This is a Spanish exploitation from Hammer Vampyres vein , as Victor Matellano based on the original plot from José Larraz takes here and there from ¨The Vampire Lovers" , ¨Carmilla¨, ¨Countess Dracula¨, and ¨Twins of Evil¨ , among others . Sometimes weak screenplay is added to well-staged murders and some gory special effects . Furthermore , a scary and thrilling musical score creates a real terror . Colorful but extremely dark cinematography in Hammer style with glimmer as well as lurid colors .

This imitation to sexy , twisted 1974 cult classic was professionally made -but with no originality- by Victor Matellano and was a flop at box office , in fact in Spain was only released in 15 theaters . Victor is an expert on terror movies , as he also directed : ¨Stop over in the hell¨ , ¨Wax¨ , and Short movies such as ¨La Cañada De Los Ingleses¨ , ¨¡Zarpazos! Un Viaje Por Spanish Horror¨ or ¨A Journey through Spanish Horror¨ , ¨Stacatto¨ and ¨Tío Jess¨ . His films are plenty of raw eroticism , grisly killings and depraved gore .
