Movie Reviews

Fangs for the Mammaries
Joshua Koppel | Chicago, IL United States | 05/09/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A typical plot device has an American heiress arrive in Europe to look over an old castle she has inherited. The help is surprised when she arrives as she looks just like her grandmother who was supposedly a vampire. When trying to prove that vampires don't really exist, the new Countess accidently releases her vampire ancestor. Now with two look-alikes running around the confusion begins to build.

But with the vampire released, bodies begin to pile up. A monastery and a religious school offer up plenty of targets for the hungry vampire. Soon more vampires are running around. But attempts to eliminate the vampire seem to fail as no one can tell which is which. Eventually we get other vampires and even Count Dracula drops in for a visit. Soon it seems like the vampires are completely out of control but being a double does have its uses.

Slightly reminiscent of The Fearless Vampire Killers this film also uses a lot of humor and slapstick in its makeup. But unlike the Polanski film, these vampires are quite debauched. Living and undead seem to spend an awful lot of time running around topless. So much so that one wonders why this is not billed as some sort of nudie-cutie film. But whatever the reason, this film works. The blend of humor and horror is done just right. Both female leads are played by the same actress (the director's wife) so the deceptions work very well. I was expecting something a little less commendable but was pleasantly surprised. Check it out."
The Hip, Happening Vampires...

"Woo-hoo! Now, this is a classic! Yep, young, beautiful Betty Williams (Pia Degermark), international movie goddess has just returned to her ancestral home via Transylvania airlines. Upon arrival at the castle, Betty learns of the grim fate of her grandma, baroness Catali. It seems she was found in bed, naked, with two bitemarks on her neck. Luckily, granny is in the castle crypt, sealed in a coffin. Of course, she's a vampire, so the last few centuries have been VERY good to the old gal! The baroness (Pia Degermark again) gets up and starts hunting unsuspecting victims at the monastary next door. One particular monk ends up at the wrong end of her fangs and becomes one of the most annoying bloodsuckers ever filmed. He soon creeps (more like stumbles) into the nearby girl's school (on the other side of the castle) and feasts upon a sleeping, naked student. Soon, the vampires are all revved up and ready to party! Count Dracula himself shows up as guest of honor at the wild flesh-feast, where most of the babes are topless! Hot diggety! THE VAMPIRE HAPPENING is a goofy, inept monster comedy that has just enough nudity to (almost) make up for it's lack of a decent script. I recommend it as a triple feature with VAMPIRES NIGHT ORGY and INVASION OF THE BEE GIRLS (GRAVEYARD TRAMPS)..."
Strange but different, I suppose

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film is odd. I can't quite put my finger on it, but perhaps it suffers a little too much from its own kookiness and a particular strain of "Laugh-In" type of quirkiness, as well as other things reminiscent of that time. I did think it was visually interesting though, and it held my attention until the very end. Lots of nudity, swinging vampires, and other weirdness from the 70's abounds and is sure to please everyone; you can't help but laugh at some of the antics, even if you try."
