If you like 1970s erotic vampire movies then you will LOVE Jose Larraz's'Vampyres'! It's as good as the best Jess Franco or Jean Rollin movies inthis genre. It's very low budget (on the DVD commentary track producer BrianSmedley-Aston claims it was only around 80,000 pounds, and he should know,he mortgaged his house to pay for it when the financing fell through!), butlooks great, especially the new print on the disc I watched. Like Franco andRollin Larraz isn't all that interested in plot as such, more atmosphere anderoticism, and this movie has it in spades. The gorgeous Marianne Morris(brunette) and Anulka (blonde) play a couple of very hot vampires whobetween seducing men and draining their blood, share a passionaterelationship. There's plenty of nudity, especially from the stunning Morris,and some very erotic scenes, though Larraz was constrained by the Britishcensorship of the day. There's also quite a lot of blood, and thesex/violence combo makes it quite special. The DVD commentary is highlyrecommended, even if you're familiar with the movie. Larraz's English isshaky but he is absolutely hilarious! After commenting that the version ofthe movie he owns is heavily cut ("the Vatican version" he jokingly callsit) he gasps with glee at some of the racier scenes, and gets particularlyanimated when Anulka's pubes are briefly seen on screen. I'm very glad heenjoys his own movie as much as I did. 'The Vampire Lovers', 'Fascination','Vampyros Lesbos' are all outstanding examples of 1970s vampiresexploitation. Add 'Vampyres' to that list!

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.
Though filmed in England, high-spirited Spanish director Jose RamonLarraz works hard not to bring a coy, prurient perspective to thisjoyous celebration of steamy eroticism, lesbianism and vampirism. If hehad failed (he doesn't), we would have been saddled with a sexless,potentially arousing work such as Jimmy Sangster's LUST FOR A VAMPIRE,a non-classic that wasted the carnal talents of the smoldering YutteStensgaard.
Featuring some of the most delicious scenes of rampant,sexually-charged blood drinking ever, VAMPYRES (not to be confused withJohn Carpenter's raw but uneven vampire entry) is a minor classichampered only by a half-baked, meandering script and static dialog.
Negatives aside, it still manages to be poetic, sensual, dream-like andgloriously subversive. Afterall, it is a film of genuine atmosphere.
The vampire leads, exuberantly played by the beautiful Marianne Morrisand Anulka Dziubinska, are extraordinary, a horror fan's wet dream madeflesh. Images of them haunting country roads in search of victims ordashing through a cemetery in the late afternoon tattoo themselves intoyour psyche.
One sequence, where they brutally and bloodily ravage a "lucky" victim,is almost pornographic in its single-minded intensity and intention.
Sometimes titled VAMPYRES: DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS, it has little incommon with Harry Kumel's superb telling of the Elizabeth Bathory storyand nothing in common with Hong Kong's gleefully vile sleazefest of thesame name.
Harry Waxman's stylish cinematography is a major asset, as is JamesClark's subtle score.
Stronger than any Hammer film.
Recommended highly for exotic tastes.
