La Strage Dei Vampiri (Slaughter of the Vampires) is one of those rare Italian Gothic horror films that is spoken about in near reverence and awe among cognoscenti of the genre.Dieter Eppler, a frequent presence in German "krimis," shines weirdly as the unnamed vampire. Hidden in the bowels of a wine cellar, he spreads a rat-like black death through a castle and into the psyche of the women living there, who accept his fanged penetrations with sighs and entreaties. Sex, just as love, is surrender, its orgiastic release a sweet expiration. These are the ancient lessons of the vampires, resonating with melancholic wonder after destructive dawn.
In an eerie chateau, a young bride feels the sting of fangs piercing her tender neck. Dubbed Italian production. AKA: "Curse of the Blood-Ghouls" and "Curses of the Ghouls."
