The Vampire’s Night Orgy (1973)

If you’re going to tour Europe on a bus, stopping in quaint small towns, check and double check your inventory. There’s a pretty good chance that at least one of those tiny and charming hamlets and burgs will be replete with the undead. Bring crosses and garlic accordingly.

To think that my high school teachers said I’d learn absolutely nothing from watching horror movies!

The villagers of Tolnia can’t be found on any map. That’s probably just as well, as it’s lorded over by a Countess (Helga Line, Nightmare CastleHorror Express) who is served by mute villagers who may or may not be zombies. They’re definitely cannibals, but nice ones, because they’ll cut off their own limbs to feed you. Oh yeah — there’s also a ghost boy wandering about.

Of course, like most Spanish horror made under the reign of Generalissimo Francisco Franco — who is still dead — scenes were shot in nude and non-nude variants. But for a movie entitled The Vampire’s Night Orgy, there is little to no orgy-ing happening.

If you live a stressful life, however, let me give you some advice. There is quite nothing like ingesting your favorite vices and being half-awake through four Eurohorror films of carrying quality in the middle of the night at a drive-in. It’s as close to lucid dreaming as some of us may ever get and it totally reaffirmed my love of life. I didn’t even get a hangover!

  1. LOL! My review is not as coherent as yours, trust me, Sam. I go completely off the rails with my brevity-lacking tomfoolery. Only because of my love for León Klimovsky and bad U.S-editing.
