Oxford professor Richard Fountain (Patrick Mower) apparently is involved in some scandal in Greece, so a motley crew (including his fiancee Madeline Hinde, government agent Alex Davion &, Patrick Macnee thrown in just for good measure) go there to get him back. 

But it soon turns out they might have taken a larger bite than they can chew on, being sucked into the evil-doings of Imogen Hassall & her satanic cult - & they might be vampires (or perverts, as it is). 

Still, the gang manages to get Richard out of Greece even though Macnee has to die while doing so. & Richard seems to be adapting to university life again pretty well - that is, until his fiancee wants to have sex with him, & he, being impotent (this is explained rather early in the movie) reverts to being a vampire (!). 

Is this borne out of sexual repression or from Imogen Hassall's bite ? 

For a time it actually seems Richard is getting better again, until, in a speech at Oxford university, he manages to insult every professor who happens to be in the room (& there are quite a few, this being Oxford) then escaping with his girl only to bite her to death. He is finally staked in a freak accident, though. 

Second-billed Peter Cushing plays the headmaster & father of Madeline Hinde.


Apart from being just a little too clever for its own good - explaining all the superstitious gobbledigook away as sexual deviation, only to in the end blame everything on superstitious gobbledigook -, this film is one of these nice little chillers from early 70's England, a time & place where (& when) they made many a nice little chiller.
