Release date: 1998
I do like to share rarities with you and this certainly is a rarity. A French language gore movie, which is a totally amateur production directed by Antoine Pellissier. I first heard of Pellissier through the series Eurotrash – which has a lot to answer for, in a totally good way – and he is an amateur director and practising Doctor. At the time of writing the review there is no imdb page for either the film or the director.

So, where are the vampires, you may ask. Well Lucy, Christina, John and Paul get to the castle and manage to get inside but before we follow them I must mention Mina hiding out in the woods, hearing someone coming and braining them with a rock and stick, before realising it is her (still human) son Tony. It was a moment darkly poignant in what amounts to a cheap splatter fest.

If you like a lot of low budget gore and little else this one will satisfy you. For those who demand a little (or a lot) more, the film will not hit the mark that well. 3 out of 10.
