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

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
