The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman (1971)

The Blood Flows Like Vintage Wine.

The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman
I watched this film many years ago and quite enjoyed it but the quality of the VHS copy was so horrible that it detracted from the movie.  The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman is the original English title for this film but I recommend you track down a copy of the "recently" released DVD called Werewolf Shadow if you want the best version of this movie.  It's the same film but uncut, in widescreen and remastered by Anchor Bay.  Now onto the film.

The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman has a Hammer Horror feel to it and a werewolf that looks straight out of a Universal Pictures monster movie.  I like both of these things.

Our story begins as two doctors remove silver bullets from the body of a man during an autopsy while dismissing local werewolf legends as superstition.  The corpse returns to the land of the living once the silver is extracted, and escapes. 

Later, two lovely young ladies are driving through the countryside to examine the tomb of an alleged vampire countess when they realize that they are lost and almost out of gas.  Luckily a local man, Daninsky, is nearby and invites them to his estate until his hired help can drive them to the distant village for gas in a day or two.  Once at the estate, the two girls are molested and/or physically assaulted by the man's psychotic sister.  But whatever, back to the main plot.

"I've seen the Samburu do this on the National Geographic channel."
Daninsky and the two girls hike to the tomb of the vampire countess and accidentally awaken her from her undead slumber when one of the girls cuts herself and drips blood into the mouth of the corpse. 

The Countess soon gets to work draining the blood from the girls after they return to the estate and tries to turn them into undead bloodsuckers like herself.  However, Daninsky and one of the girls have fallen in love and he will do anything to protect her from "Satan's favorite mistress."  Oh, and I forgot to mention that he's the werewolf.

This is another tough call.  I liked this film but I'm not so sure others will.  The pacing is often slow and the effects are dated.  I guess if you are a fan of old school monster movies or like the style and atmosphere of Hammer horror films, you'll probably like The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman as well.

I think this would be better with zombies. Zombies always make things better.

Werewolf vs Vampire woman? Sounds like bestiality to me. Though the last pic is pretty sexy with the exception of the look of intense horror on her face.

I've never really been much a fan of Hammer films, because most of the ones I've seen are so campy they play more like comedy than horror.

Tasos said...

helloooooo Mrs. Vampire! the trailer kind of conflicts with your review. I was to read just your review, I might just watch it, but the trailer is soooo bad....

Moob said...

Jeez, not even sure which one I would pick! Looks like a hairy video to me.

Robert Fünf said...

Sam said...

Old school monsters rock

DYLON said...

sounds pretty good.

Kicking Rocks said...

This sounds like it would be at least as good as any of those damn Twilight films. That and people need to learn never ever to run out of gas, because crap like this inevitably happens.
