Movie Reviews

Fangs of the Undead
Steven Hellerstedt | 03/05/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Super-model Anita Ekberg inherits a castle, breaks off her engagement, and falls under the spell of her cold and strange uncle as she learns more of her inheritance and her heritage.
Or something like that. FANGS OF THE LIVING DEAD (aka Bloody Girl, Malenka the Vampire, The Niece of the Vampire and The Vampire's Niece) is hard to follow and probably not worth the trouble. I think Ekberg's grandmother Malenka (also played by Ekberg) was a dabbler in the black arts, outed and burned at the stake by irate villagers just after she'd brought Uncle Max to life, or undeath. Anyway, she's burning while he's fluttering his eyelids and wiggling his fingers. You figure it out.
In any event, there's a spooky castle, a creepy vampire uncle, busty barmaids, a gallant fiancé and trusty sidekick, and bunches of garlic hanging in every innocent window and doorway. This may well have been a satire that will appeal to fans of the genre. I just found it unpleasantly confusing.

St Clair's DVD "Collector's Edition"
Zoveck | Los Angeles, CA United States | 05/04/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, if this is a "Collector's Edition", I'd hate to see the standard edition- this is a sloppy release at best, with a very grainy image throughout. Also, the Amazon description says "letterboxed" - it's not. It's fullscreen. The title sequence is sort of letterboxed (though the credits are still cut off), but that's it.

The Retrovision release is actually better image quality, though both releases seem to be edited for television. Retro's image is much less grainy and seems to have slightly better (more complete) full-screen image information."
I liked this!

"At the onset, Anita Ekberg's glacial Swedish beauty is featured as a portrait on a painting amidst a typically dreamy 70's soundtrack that seems a little too romantic for a horror film. The film is about a young model (Ekberg) who travels to her ancestral castle, only to find herself being held captive by her uncle, a man with incredibly chiselled yet inhuman features, along with a dark vampiric woman who roams about in a very tight low-cut dress? Hmm. Anyhow, I did enjoy the film, it had a sort of "Dark Shadows" aura about it that I found charming. Also, as someone who loves the mod look, I thought that Anita's clothing and eye-makeup were pretty fab."

"This movie started out with lots of potential but went downhill fast. These were the weakest vampires I have ever seen, the movie broke most of the "vampire rules", but on a good note plenty of eye candy."
