The Blood Flows Like Vintage Wine.
|The Werewolf Vs. Vampire Woman|
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.

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.
