Horrorfest 2021 Presents: Vampyres (1975, José Ramón Larraz)

When I’m viewing a movie, it’s never a good thing if I start thinking about better movies I’ve seen before. Well that applies to Vampyres, a movie where not much of anything interesting happens until midway through. I wish I was kidding, alas I am not. So disappointing, especially since vampire lesbians has resulted in some good horror films. I’m reminded of when Roger Ebert said that if something of remarkable interest did not happen in a film in the first 20 minutes, it wasn’t worth seeing. He definitely had a point with this movie.

Also the vampires keep stabbing people with knives when they’re vampires. Even in low budget horror movies the vampires regularly bite people so this one choosing to not have much if any vampire moments is a head scratcher to me. I liked the scenery and the actors were fine, I was just left completely unimpressed by anything happening on screen except for some decent gory and bloody moments. Skip this, view any other 1970s vampire movie instead.
