THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE SCREAM FACTORY BLU RAY!

Ingrid pitt plays a vampire out for revenge against a small town. She gets herself invited to various wealthy households and seduces the nubile young daughters of the Austrian nobles (said nobles played by Hammer Stalwart Peter Cushing and Arthur Daley himself George Cole) slowly draining them inbetween some extremely softcore lesbian sexaimed at an audience for an audience growing steadily jaded by an influx of sex filled euro-horror from directors like Jean Rollin and Jess Franco.
Vampire Lovers is a film that has one foot still firmly in the old school hammer gothic tradition with fog shrouded villages, taverns country estates and period costumes galore. The other foot is in the world of the modern (for the 1970's) euro-horror imports that were stealing Hammers thunder. In spite of its attempt to pander to the more purient audiences of the time Vampire lovers is still a lot of fun. The sets are great, the performances are also uniformly good and director Roy ward Baker makes the most of things.
The blu-ray IS region free. A rarity for scream factory releases but it will play on your PS3 with no problems. Its using the same sources as the MGM midnight movies release and looks great. Theres some print damage evident but its still a noticable step up from that release. Extras wise it carries over all the bonus features from the midnight movies release including the commentary track and Ingrid Pitt reading an extract from Carmilla as well as including a couple of short new featurettes as well.

The Vampire Lovers was always one of my fav Hammer films so i was a bit disappointed to find that the UK 15 rated stand alone version is cut. Missing scenes are Ingrid Pitt doing a brief full frontal and some of the blood letting at the end of the movie. However the UK double pack of the Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire are both uncut and both in widescreen.

The picture quality on this Australian blu-ray seems OK, but the audio is horrid. Whether it comes from an inferior source or has just been badly mastered I don't know, but it's overly-quiet and prone to what sounds like wow & flutter from a warped tape. It's noticeably worse than any of the DVD versions I've encountered (both US and UK releases).

I suggest holding off for the Scream!Factory release due in April 2013.

As any fule kno this is the first part of the Hammer's Karnstein trilogy (The Vampire Lovers, Lust for a Vampire, Twins of Evil) based on Irish Gothic-horror writer Sheriden Le Fanu's tales. With the help of The Countess (Dawn Addams) Carmilla/Mircalla/Marcilla is the vampire lesbian parasite who latches onto a host, drains them of their blood until they die and then moves onto the next. That's pretty much it as far as the plot goes. If that doesn't sound too promising it is told with typical Hammer conviction backed up with sets, costumes and the familiar faces of the Hammer stable. The direction by Roy Ward Baker is superb, his graceful camera swooping and panning making the film look incredible, for example, the pre-title sequence involving Baron Hartog (Wilmer) is wonderfully dreamlike and atmospheric. The production values are good too, and the sets superb (later Hammers would have much poorer sets). This film marked a change for Hammer and dictated the direction of the last few years of Hammer productions i.e. an obsession with tits, bums and lesbians (which is no bad thing especially if they look like Ingrid Pitt or Madeleine Smith). The performances are largely excellent, especially Ingrid Pitt who hints at pathos in her role as a vampiress through the ages and there are typically solid performances from the likes of Cushing and Wilmer (two 1960's Sherlock Holmes). There are a few minus points - George Cole is miscast as a squire (I always see him as spiv Flash Harry in St Trinians), Dawn Addams has a weird accent (when everyone else - Mayne excepted - is talking with an English accent) and there's some clumsy back-projection. Apart from that, this is one of the best latter day Hammers.

Grabbed this version for the wonderful commentary by Hearns and Rigby. They do the best commentaries on these classic Hammer films. If you are a commentary fan like me you will not go wrong with this version. The dvd has been cleaned up and the sound is better than previous versions.
Ingrid Pitt Kate Omara, Peter Cushing and Douglas Wilmer bring this film far above material that they are working with. That alone is fun to watch.
I have the original MGM release with commentary by Pitt and director Roy Ward Baker I recommend this one for cleaner presentation.
This plays on my regular and multiregion dvd players

I've always been a fan of horror movies made in the sixties and seventies and this is one of my favourites, mainly because of the delicious Ingrid Pitt who could bare her fangs and hiss with the best of them. I am delighted with this blu-ray edition and really impressed with the bevy of extras, especially the interview with Maddy Smith who clearly enjoyed herself in the role of near-victim to Miss Pitt's avaricious vampire. Heartilly recommended for those who enjoy horror movies set in medieval Europe with not a chain-saw or hockey mask in sight.
