Fun and entertaining little Italian vampire opus.

Five showgirls and their manager and a bus driver are caught in a violent storm and end up at a strange old castle.

Walter Brandi is the owner of the castle who at first tells them they cannot stay, but then changes his mind after one of the showgirls captures his heart.

he warns them never to leave their room at night, but as usual some of them do and become a victim of a vampire also played by Brandi.

In the end we find that the vampire is a brother of the owner. That makes for an interesting fight scene at the end of the film as well. This film follows the formula of several other classic Italian horror films including "Bloody Pit Of Horror" and "Vampire And The Ballerina" which is still awaiting a DVD/Blu-ray release.

Brandi made three of these types of films including "Slaughter Of the Vampires" and the above mentioned "Vampire And The Ballerina" and this is considered part of the vampire trilogy from the land of Spaghetti.

This DVD is the international cut which means it has a flash of nudity in it that was cut from all US prints. The actress playing the nude vampire Katia is none other than the incredibly gorgeous Maria Giovannini, and she could put the bite on me anytime!!

Brandi is good as the hero and the villain of the piece and I highly recommend this to horror fans. Sadly Miss Giovannini only made six films in her short career that apparently ended after this film was made. Not much is known about her, but her performance in this film is something you won't soon forget.
