I won't go into story detail as I never really like to tell too much to anyone who may want to watch this film; only to reassure you that the DARK SKY print is exceptional and the overall viewing experience was enjoyable. Dieter Eppler made the most of his vampire presence, and Graziella Granata is one of the most beautiful, sexually alluring women to ever appear in a vampire film. Aldo Piga's score was very effective, haunting and romantic and hopefully will one day be available on cd.
I also purchased the RETROMEDIA version as well. I figured that since I wasn't going to purchase either, I'd just go ahead with it and get both for comparison. The RETROMEDIA version is just awful compared to DARK SKY's. It looks like something ALPHA VIDEO would have put out for around 5 bucks. So if you're considering purchasing a copy of this film then please, go with the DARK SKY dvd. It's a great buy for this enjoyable vampire film.
#1. Editing.......They did a brilliant editing job with this version.....The B&W is, in my opinion clearer & cleaner then most films it's age, considering the fact that this film was made in 1962 and that folks is for the most part almost 50 years ago so give credit where it's due, they did a great job bringing this movie back from the dead.
#2. The script.....Well the script is a whole other ball game, 10 minutes into this film and you can just tell that this film cries for help in the script dept because the lines are just so lame that if this were a 2010 movie, I guarantee, people would walk out of the theater or at best, laugh their butts off with every line. One of the stars Walter Brandi suffers quite a few times during the beginning of the picture from scriptural redundancy and talks to his wife like she's a child in others.
#3. The Actors......The Vampire, Dieter Eppler, sinister looking, doesn't talk much, would've been much more efficient a vampire if he was given more beauties to bite but you can only suck so much blood in 79 minutes I guess......
The 1st Victim, Graziella Granata, what can be said about this lady?, she was 21 when she made this movie and IT SHOWS, she was drop dead, knock down, no holds barred gorgeous. If she had dropped her top in this movie, I would've gave it, hands down 5 stars no questions asked because this lady made this movie ANYWAY no matter what and her jog through the castle while being chased by Prof. Nische?, WOWZERS..Read more ›
