Fun Vampire Fluff

"This isn't your usual high budget hollywood blockbuster sort of affair, but it's campy, it's gory, and it's sexy. Everything you want to see when you're in the mood for some horror movie fluff. The dialogue is indeed kind of boring, and there are a few scenes which one is at a loss to discover their good purpose, but the editing is very nice, there are some surprisingly wonderful scenes and sequences in the movie, and the whole effect is charmingly, endearingly creepy. In my opinion, the best actors are Mrs. Amworth (played by Magenta Brooks- worth seeing this movie just for her! hot hot hot!) and the guy who plays the boss of the female costar. The acting is appropriate to the film, serious, understated, and yet brimming with camp.
In summary, this is a good movie to invite a bunch of friends over for. The horror is silly enough to have fun with in a group, but gives you enough real scares, and leaves you with a strong enough feeling of uneasiness, that it's not quite MST3K enough to just make fun of.
Watch this for a fun, spooky, sexy, gothy evening."
NOT the Mrs Amworth of 1975 (or 1977)

"Mrs. Amworth This is NOT the Mrs Amworth of 1975 (or 1977 as Amazon claims), it is a 2006 remake, and is not to be confused with the original. It has been cheaply made by a very small production company, and is so obscure that if you search on imdb you will not find the film or most of the actors.
The film is not without its merits, but I like all vampire films and find something of interest in all of them. However, if you are chasing the original, keep looking!"
A sexy vampire film

"I was a fan of the original tale when I read it in high school and was looking forward to seeing the two movies based on the classic short story. Neither film, either the 1970's version with Glynis Johns or this one with Magenta Brooks, followed the story very closely so they must be judged on their own instead of as adaptations. The Johns movie is disappointing since it is neither scary nor sexy, however, the Brooks movie is both. Production values are very low and the sound and acting is just passable but the star, Magenta Brooks, is sexy, elegant and carries the film effortlessly. She wears her costumes with the grace of Sargent's "Madame X" and steals every scene she's in. Buy it just to see her. Mrs. Amworth"
