Movie Reviews

Poorly plotted but somehow erotic
lecudedag | NSW Australia | 07/06/2007

"A Spanish vampire filem (La Noche de los brujos), set in Africa, it has a touch of voodoo and S&M about it.

Starting some years earlier, the film has a woman attacked by an African tribe where she's whipped and then beheaded and then returns as a vampire.

Jumping to the present a small group of people camp near-by and one by one the women of the group are drawn to the same sacrifice area where they are tied up, whipped until their clothes are in tatters and then bitten to become vampires.

As a vampire, the pale woman skips about in poorly lit jungle wearing a tiger-fur bikini (see woman on front cover)... where they got these from is not known.

That's pretty much the film there. One by one women become bikini-wearing paled vampires leaping about in slow motion."

"I must thank Deimos DVD for finally making this sexy horror favorite of my youth available in such a beautifully preserved and presented form. It's taken awhile, but I knew it would happen eventually and now it is here.

If you grew up in Southern California, Night of the Sorcerers (aka La Noche de los Brujos) was a regularly run Spanish origin horror film, usually popping up on channel 13 or 9. I have even seen it more recently on the spanish language channels. Yes, the plot is silly. Yes, the dubbing is atrocious. It's even kind of dull in spots. But if you've ever seen it, I doubt you can forget it.

Written and directed by the late Amando de Ossorio (Tombs of the Blind Dead, Fangs of the Living Dead), this voodoo/vampire hybrid is gory, sexy, stupid, scary, dream-like and unintentionally funny all at once. Ossorio often references his other films in his movies, and here it's no exception (the ending will remind many of the finale in Fangs). However, I don't mean to say the film is derivative. It's actually very unique. Certainly, it's wonderfully trashy, even after all these years.

The full-screen image quality is outstanding- the HD transfer is flawless. Bright, vivid color and crisp, clear, sharp detail. You can either pick dubbed english sound or original Spanish with or without subtitles. Extras include a theatrical trailer (!), alternate scenes, spanish language titles and a still gallery. I'm a little aware of some online controversy regarding the "uncutness" of this new Deimos/BCI release. All I will say, having seen the other versions, is that I am very happy with this edition.

While I doubt this will be appearing on the Oxygen network anytime soon, it is certainly a must buy for any Euro-horror buff. What are you waiting for?!?"

"A group of explorers arrive to study the wildlife in the same area a brutal murder happened in 1910. Nobody cares and, of course, things start to happen to them. Mostly at night when the guys asked to keep watch over the camp are either making out or sleeping. Easy camp to sneak into, really. Anyway, people are killed, the sexy Spanish actresses end up as vampires, dressed up in skins, running slow motion through the jungle, jiggling the whole way and things get weird. You get the picture. Witchcraft, vampires, sexy women, stupid men. Heavily armed men, but pretty stupid and easy to distract.
Loved the alternate footage, the still gallery, and the insert of liner notes. Sometimes it was hard to see what was going on because most of the night scenes were really day scenes with filters and stuff. But the film was still fun to watch. In a twisted, B-movie, half-clad vampire women kind of way."

"A different twist on the vampire scene. Beautiful women find strange zombies and a woman dressed in leopard skin outfit only to thirst for their blood. one great scene where a beautiful victim is whipped and clothing torn from her body only dangling from the ropes she is bound with to have her neck bitten from behind by the leopard vampire woman."
