Ever since I first saw TRACK OF THE VAMPIRE a.k.a. BLOOD BATH (1966) on a Friday night late show back in the '70's, I've had a special fondness for this low budget, patchwork of a movie. I found its premise of an artist/vampire terrorizing the beatniks of Venice Beach, California rather compelling and the location photography wonderfully atmospheric. Little did I realize then the complex back story about how this obscure horror gem came to be.

It all started in 1963 when B-movie maestro Roger Corman secured production of a Yugoslavian crime thriller, OPERATION TITIAN and, hoping to appeal to an American audience, cast William Campbell and Patrick Magee in principal roles. Unhappy with the result, Corman re-cut and re-scored the film, as well as added a few scenes and released it as PORTRAIT IN TERROR. Believing he could still fare better, Corman had the premise re-structured into a vampire tale requiring more extensive reshoots resulting in BLOOD BATH, which itself was expanded for TV distribution as TRACK OF THE VAMPIRE. Although he was the guiding force behind this convoluted venture, Roger Corman received no onscreen credit on any of the four BLOOD BATH incarnations.

In retrospect, the source for all the subsequent versions - OPERATION TITIAN - isn't bad at all, with fine direction by Radoš Novaković and fabulous location photography of the ancient, Adriatic coastal port of Dubrovnik. BLOOD BATH was directed by Jack Hill and Stephanie Rothman, and likewise generates great atmosphere derived from footage of TITIAN's exteriors coupled with the scenes shot at Venice Beach which sort of resemble Dubrovnik. Indeed, they recall DEMENTIA a.k.a. DAUGHTER OF HORROR (1955) and Orson Welles' TOUCH OF EVIL (1958), two other films that also make splendid use of Venice.

“Blood Bath," 1966 feature overseen by Roger Corman, has been given a luxurious box set release containing four different versions of the lurid horror tale.

William Campbell stars as Sordi, a painter who works in a bell tower, lures beautiful women to his studio, kills them, covers them in wax, and paints their pictures. He believes he is the reincarnation of his ancestor and the lovely Dorean (Lori Saunders) is also a reincarnation. In addition to all this baggage, it is suggested that Sordi just might be a vampire.

Corman invested in a Yugoslavian picture called “Operation Titian” just before it went into production. Insisting that it be filmed in English, he sent actors William Campbell and Patrick Magee and uncredited story editor Francis Ford Coppola to Dubrovnik to make a U.S.-friendly movie but wasn’t pleased with the result. First he had it recut and re-scored to create “Portrait in Terror,” a film more compatible with the tastes of drive-in movie fans. Next he gave it to Jack Hill, then Stephanie Rothman, each director undertaking reshoots that resulted in a vampire picture called “Blood Bath.” When a TV version was required later on, scenes were eliminated and others added to create “Track of the Vampire.”

The 2-disc Blu-ray edition contains all four versions, newly restored. Bonus extras include a new interview with actor Sid Haig recorded exclusively for this release; archive interview with producer-director Jack Hill; stills gallery; double-sided fold-out poster; reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork; and limited edition booklet containing behind-the-scenes information about the cast and the making of the film.

“Blood Bath”
Now a 2-Disc Limited Special Edition on Blu-ray

“Blood Bath” has quite a perplexing plot to say the least. It is about an insane artist (William Campbell) who believes that he's the reincarnation of his ancestor, a madman burned at the stake centuries ago. Campbell lures women to his studio above a bell tower, paints their portraits, kills them, and then dips them in wax. There are four different versions of the film and all four are included in this release from Arrow Films. “Track of the Vampire” is the television title of “Blood Bath” and it is ten minutes longer that the movie house version. The film’s history is quite interesting. It began as a Yugoslavian production called "Operation: Titian" that was helped set up by Corman himself who found the film to be unreleasable, but it later showed up on TV as "Portrait of Terror" (the second version). Then producer/director Roger Corman hired Jack Hill to shoot new scenes in California with Campbell, Sid Haig, Jonathan Haze, former playmate Marrisa Mathes, and others. Later, Stephanie Rothman was brought in to film even more scenes, mostly involving a subplot with Sandra Knight and the search for her missing sister.
“Sordi” (Campbell) is a painter who firmly believes that he is the reincarnation of his ancestor and that the beautiful Dorean (Lori Saunders) is also a reincarnation. He e kills Dorean's friend Daisy
and Daisy's sister Donna (Sandra Knight). A group of comical artists come to the rescue and in the end, we see several wax-covered victims come to life and turn on their creator.
In some cases the acting is terrible but horror fans will find it to be a treat.
