In 1974, an English horror film titled VAMPYRES, written and directed by José Ramón Larraz Gil , premiered to an unsuspecting world. Soon, it became a cult horror sensation because of its sensuality, its gruesomeness and its twisted atmosphere. This new version keeps those graphic elements and the twisted atmosphere, but includes more action, more horror and more gore in telling the story of two vamps that “live” in a dark manor where they bring men with the promise of sex orgies that ultimately become blood orgies. Horror.
“A pulsating remake…It’s bloody, gory, and definitely pushes an erotic edge at the viewer. Those looking for erotic horror will want to check it out…If blood, nudity, and vampiric sex are your thing, Vampyres surely delivers in spades. – DoBlu
“Vampyres is a hell of a good film, and I highly recommend it. The concept here is simple, but the execution is excellent…The special effects in Vampyres are outstanding. There are many blood-bursting throat slashes throughout the film, and they all look excellent….I recommend giving it a look if you are a fan of Jess Franco or Tinto Brass, or just erotic horror in general. Well-executed with a lot of heart, this visual feast should definitely earn a place in your film library soon. – ShatteredRavings
