Deathmaster [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Absolute hockum, though Quarry is excellent. Made to cash in the Charles Manson case a vampire takes over a hippy commune and makes hippy vampires, so much for peace and love"
Vampiyaz [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Vampiyaz [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Really quite poor. hip-hop, gangsta vamps, but with a story that is poorly scripted and acted"
Forest Of The Damned [DVD]
Forest Of The Damned [DVD]
"Fallen Angels who have become nymph like creatures  - this has more than a touch of the vampire genre to it. However, despite the legendary Tom Savini, poor acting and a confused ending spoils this"
The Monster Club [1980] [DVD]
The Monster Club [1980] [DVD]

Doctor Who - The Curse of Fenric [1989] [DVD] [1963]
"this is better than I remember, as when the McCoy era Who came out I turned against it. Still too childish in some of the scripting but it has a dark heart that should have been exploited. Haemovores!"

Count Yorga Vampire [DVD] [1970] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Let's Scare Jessica to Death [DVD] [2006] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"stunning film that is criminally not well known, having a lot in common with ghost story type films the vampire elements are understated but as a study in (in)sanity it can't be beaten"
Criterion Coll: Blood for Dracula [DVD] [1975] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Criterion Coll: Blood for Dracula [DVD] [1975] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Zoltan: Hound of Dracula [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Zoltan: Hound of Dracula [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

After Sundown [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Dracula Prisoner of Frankenstein [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Crypt of the Vampire [DVD] [1962] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
