Atrocious rapid editing and plenty of silent scenes featuring a narrator add some unintentional humor to this dog about vampires in Greece.
There's some nudity and star power to this flick that makes it somewhat watchable. Parts of the film come across like a Russ Meyer movie, with cheesy rock music and pot-smoking partiers disrobing and feeling themselves up while painting occult symbols on their bodies. The flick is a dog, with a story about an but it is fun to watch. You're left wondering what actors like Cushing and Edward Woodward are doing attaching their names to a sexploitation turkey like this. The '70s, cop-show-drama-style music is also hilarious.
Fans of the Hammer classic "The Devil Rides Out" might be interested to see actor Patrick Mower in a similar role to the one he had in that film—that of a guy who gets so wrapped up in the occult that his friends have to pull him out. Best line of the film: "Are you trying to tell me that a girl sucking blood from a man's neck will produce an orgasm?"
Recommended only if you're into really obscure schlock.
