The American Cinemateque gave a hundred or so lucky viewers the opportunityto watch what is likely to be the only surviving 35MM print of thisfilm.Having seen dozens and dozens of Vampire-themed pictures, VAMPYRES certainlyrates as one of the better little-seen titles in the sub-genre. Erotic,atmospheric and genuinely creepy, this film deserves fuller treatment ingenre cinema studies. It is certainly the most 'oral' of all vampirepictures (you'll fully comprehend what I mean when you seeit).A perfect double bill with the similarly themed (and even better) DAUGHTERSOF DARKNESS.

This movie doesn't leave an awfully big impression but it still is somegood fun for the fans of the horror genre and vampire genre inparticular.
The movie has a splendid visual atmosphere which is mainly thanks tothe beautiful English countryside. Yes sir, the English countrysidestill looks better than any other average Hollywood set for a moviefrom the same genre. Also the atmosphere of the movie in general istypical British, so I can truly recommend this movie if you're fan ofthe old Hammer movies and stuff like that. Even though the movie neverreally gets scary, it still knows to create a certain creepyatmosphere. Also the movie is filled with some good graphic goryscene's, which worked well for the movie and its atmosphere.
The story is just as thin as the ladies clothes. The are quite a fewthings that don't make an awful lot of sense and there are some momentsthat the movie just drags on for far too long, such as all the eroticscene's, which only all felt totally pointless.
I am also ashamed to admit that I actually rather liked the unusualmusical score by James Kenelm Clarke.
All in all it is a movie that is worth seeing but granted that you haveto be a fan of the genre to be able to appreciate this movie. And hey,it has got Michael Byrne in it, better known as über-Nazi Vogel from"Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"! Another reason why this movie isperfectly watchable.
Have you ever been bored of either the pathetic shot-on-video gothfantasiesthat seem to clog up the shelves, or even good old Jess Franco's cool butboring sleaze epics? This film is pretty much alone in the LesbianVampiregenre in that it has real zeal - the girls really seem to get into theirroles and the result is the most erotic non-porn feature I've ever seen.Excellent stuff.
