Editorial Reviews

"They share the pleasures of the flesh, and unleashed the horrors of the grave!" screamed the ads. The beautiful Marianne Morris and stunning Playboy centerfold Anulka star as bisexual seductresses who roam the English countryside with an insatiable lust for the blood of mortals as well as the succulent bodies of each other. Director José Ramón Larraz packs this landmark adult hit with chilling atmosphere, shocking bloodshed and some of the most torrid sexuality of any vampire movie in horror history.

Also known as DAUGHTERS OF DRACULA, this controversial cult classic was butchered repeatedly by censors around the world. Blue Underground is proud to present VAMPYRES loaded with exclusive new Extras and featuring a stunning new transfer that restores all of the controversial gore footage missing from any previous version. This is the definitive edition of VAMPYRES!

Okay, 1974's VAMPYRES admittedly has numerous nude scenes--full frontal female nude scenes, in some cases--that was a prerequisite for the sexploitation horror pouring out of Europe in the 1970s. And yes, the two female players have hourglass figures, ample bosoms, and beautiful faces. However, this British indie film, directed by Spanish auteur José Ramón Larraz, has a cinematic aesthetic that makes it stand out above its contemporaries as a horror film of true quality. Larraz does a fantastic job of directing, working in close conjunction with cinematographer Harry Waxman to ensure that nearly every shot of every scene is a balanced, well-framed image. In keeping with the spooky atmosphere of the moldering English manor house and surrounding grounds used for location shooting, production designer Ken Bridgeman maintains the perfect ambiance throughout. And unlike many other buxom sexploitation actresses of the era, erotic stars Marianne Morris and Anulka (Dziubinska) can actually act, and they do a superb job in making the eponymous characters both scary and sympathetic.
In addition to the outstanding efforts of cast and crew, the tight, well-written script is refreshingly new--even from this vantage point of some thirty years hence. Avoiding the usual vampire clichés, these VAMPYRES are really more like ghosts who have some inexplicable but insatiable desire to feed on the blood of the living. They don't have fangs, they can tolerate moderate sunlight, and instead of resting in musty old caskets, they sleep in a wine cellar during the brightest of the daylight hours. They also can eat, drink liquids other than blood, and seem to genuinely enjoy sex.

A pair of bisexual women (Marianne Morris and Playboy playmate Anulka) living in a dark, decaying mansion have a craving for blood and sex. Hitchiking in long black cloaks, they lure men home and then take them to bed, slash them with knives, and dump the bodies, making it look like a car wreck. They like one guy so much they keep him around for days and he knows something bad is happening, but he's not sure what. Some people camping nearby also suspect that the women are up to strange things.... The violence is strong even though there's more blood than gore, plenty of sex and nudity, and some very lyrical, beautiful scenes. The ending throws a whole new, darker twist on the proceedings and ties it all together nicely. It has kind of a "Hammer Films" look to it, but the storyline is more along the lines of Jean Rollin. Even though the budget was small, this is a quality-looking film. The DVD looks great and contains a commentary track with producer Brian Smedley-Aston and director Joseph Larraz that's worth listening to - it's informative, and Larraz is hilarious and pulls no punches - ya gotta love the guy, even though he admits he's become a dirty old man (the comment during one of Anulka's nude scenes had me rolling on the floor). :) It's one of the most entertaining commentary tracks I've heard on a DVD, and a quality film besides.

If you watch this movie for anything other than the sexual content you are most likely to be disappointed. The plot is paper thin (hell, I could have written it!) and poses numerous questions without bothering to answer any of them. Even the film's title is a bit of a misnomer. But, let's face it...the whole point of the film is to set up situations that allow the two female "vampyres" to disrobe and display their bodies (no complaints here!). Getting to view the two stunning ladies repeatedly in nude scenes is enough to earn this film four stars in my book! Seriously though, this film does have a Hammeresque quality to it and the setting is very atmospheric (nice blend of mid-70's style with a touch of gothic). The acting is pretty good, too. But, the film loses a star due to it's lack of storyline and departure from classic vampire lore. Classic horror? No. Classic erotica? Yes.

Just wanted to add a brief comment on the Blue Ray version of this film. As I have the orignal Anchor Bay and Blue Underground DVD versions I was very interested in what the Blue Ray version would be like. I pre-ordered the item from Amazon about 6 weeks ago when I saw it listed and received my copy yesterday and watched it last night. All I can say is WOW. What a transfer. The colors are extremely vivid. It looks like it was filmed yesterday. An exceptional job. Oddly, the Blue Underground DVD version has a few extras not on the Blue Ray but no big deal. If your a fan of this film and are into Blue Ray buy this immediately. You will not be disappointed.

I rate vampire/horror movies as great, bad and terrible. "Bad" horror films can be a lot of fun with their unintentional goofs and silly occurrences. Great movies are rarely the low budget Hammer-type films, and terrible is simply that...terrible.

Vampyres falls somewhere in between great and bad to my surprise. The chemistry of the actors was superb, the vampyres always seemed to have a good time and there were some great sex scenes. The violence was pitched just right, and there was some creativity such as eschewing the traditional neck-biting for sliced bloodletting, the vampyres enjoying sex, wine and even a cigarette.

Unfortunately, the "moldering" castle looked like new to me, and the camping couple nearby was a bit annoying. Who would go camping in a tiny trailer near the castle, then sit and polish the silver?

However, another refreshing detail of this film was the lovely nude actresses had genuine breasts! Not something you see much of anymore. Get it guys? [...]
I very much enjoyed this film, it is now one of my favorites. I'm not sure if I'll let my husband see it though, he might really like it!
