Editorial Reviews

Fanged terror rises from the tomb in this artfully executed vampire chiller. An upper-class patriarch must keep the body of his deceased wife sealed in his jungle mansion's secret mausoleum because her corpse is now inhabited by a demon. Consumed with a thirst for human blood, the animalistic "Mother" puts the bite on her own son Eduardo, who proceeds to make victims of other family members and their loved ones. But the forces of darkness don't have a monopoly on invading the mortal world... Soon Eduardo is contending with a ghost who has come back for the ultimate battle of good vs. evil.

Director Gerardo de Leon was one of the Philippines' most respected filmmakers and the recipient of eight FAMAS Awards (the Filipino equivalent of the Oscar). He occasionally turned his hand to horror with a human dimension, telling this tragic vampire story with eerie atmospheric effects, action and powerful emotion. Blood of the Vampires scored FAMAS nominations for Best Picture and Best Director while star Amalia Fuentes won for Best Actress. - Tom Weaver

This is by far the best vampire movie I have nEVER seen! I don't understand these other reviews at all. If you want true terror, nostalgic goth and melancholic cemetery scenes.

Ghosts with depth and character support one of the finest vampire renditions ever. This movie is for you! The love scenes were not chick flick in the least and moved me to tears when I was lost in the characters and realizing my own flailing mortality.

GOD I wish I was a vampire!!

...Or, so screams the tag-line for BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRES, the nearly bloodless epic from the Philippines. Actually, the movie is more of a love story w/ a ghost and a few vampires running around. I'm a big fan of the BLOOD ISLAND movies, so I was sufficiently prepared for cheeeze, but the overall dullness of BOTV is almost coma-inducing! It was OK, but I'm in no hurry to watch it again...

Format: DVD
"Blood of the Vampires" is a dreadful horror flick set in nineteenth century Mexico, but made in the Philippines with an all Filipino cast. The acting, direction, film quality, and casting are absolutely bottom of the barrel. When black actors are called for, they simply put blackface on Filipinos thinking the audience isn't smart enough to notice.

The film starts at a large dinner party with dancing in a big old spooky house. There's a romantic subplot about the engagement of the main character to be married to the daughter of Señor Escodero. Note that the scenes of intimacy are more than a bit wooden, like all the rest of the acting here. The family patriarch is also dying in another subplot that festers on and off for the duration of the movie (with a terrifically unbelievable resolution near the end.) In fact, there's no end of pathetic attempts at dramatic subplots which go nowhere, but the film focuses on the fact that Señor Escodero's wife is a vampire locked in the basement of the house. When the kids find out there is no end of trouble, and no end of vampiritic activities. Unfortunately it's sometimes hard to tell what's going on for two primary reasons: first, the quality of the film is relatively poor; and second, the dubbing is absolutely horrendous. Remember, English is the third language of the film.

Watching the unvarnished of this film warrants a single star, but I have decided on a two star rating in the event you see a copy of the Cinematic Titanic version of the movie (which is highly recommended), as the commentary makes it much more palatable; then again, any change would make this film more palatable.

It's a little cheesy now but a great memory from my childhood, that old woman scared the hell out of me when I was little boy I highly recommend the movie.
