Description by OLDIES.com:
The monstrous vampire Marco is determined to raise his beloved Katrina from the dead. But in order to do so, he needs to transplant the heart of her living sister, Charito, the sweetest, loveliest girl in the village. Unleashing his murderous giant bat and his evil minions, Marco spreads terror and death through the community as he attempts to abduct the innocent girl. But a priest, a detective, and Charito's friends risk their lives in a desperate attempt to save her from Marco's hideous surgery.
The Blood Drinkers, originally released as Kulay Dugo Ang Gabi (Blood Is The Color Of Night), was directed by Philippine horror maestro Gerardo de Leon who also helmed the 1959 cult classic, Terror Is A Man. The director fills the screen with exotic jungle locations, Catholic iconography, graphic lighting and creative color effects as this vampire saga hurtles towards its bloody conclusion.
A strange yet affecting vampire story, THE BLOOD DRINKERS tells the tale of Marco, (Ronald Remy), a nouveau, modernized Dracula type. Pining for his long dead sweetheart, Marco finds her dead body and brings her back to life using the blood of his victims.
