This is the second Louis Feuillade series I've watched, the first being Fantomas. Well, I enjoyed Fantomas very much and, in my opinion, Les Vampires is equally as good. It's presented in a similiar format, 10 episodes of varying length, each very inventive and entertaining. Les Vampires are a gang of criminals and the stories invlove them being pursued by journalist Philippe Guerande, while holding Paris in their grip of terror. Irma Vep is particularly strong and seductive as their female leader. The episodes are visually very impressive often having a surreal, dream-like quality to them. There is a strong musical score to compliment this. One of the main reasons I've written this review is previous comments have referred to the lack of tinting in this edition. This is true but having researched this, I've found this this version to be the best available. The tinting is effective but this monochrome version has far better picture clarity, without losing detail which can happen with tinting. Overall, this is an excellent, entertaining series and I'd highly recommend it.
