Guy (John Landon) takes his girlfriend Angelica (Claudia Barron) to the Castle, a combination of haunted house and restaurant, run by a certain Adrian Alucard (Des Roberts) - Alucard being of course Dracula in reverse. Angelica was never too big a fan of horror and thus she insists on leaving prematurely. yet the next day she meets Adrian again and finds him fascinating - and he has soon enough hypnotized her and sucked some of her blood. The two of them meet again and again over the next few days.

Soon enough, it becomes apparent that something is wrong with Angelica and that she's losing blood, but her doctor, Harris (Robert Branche), can't find out what, and he dismisses Guy's suggestion that a vampire might be involved ...

Eventually, Adrian invites Angelica to a ceremony to be held in the Castle - but little does Angelica know that during that ceremony she will be turned into a full-fledged vampire.

Around the same time, Guy persuades Doc Harris to go to the Castle with him to investigate, but when Doc Harris realizes they are already expected, he hightails it. Guy on the other hand comes face-to-face with Adrian - and it turns out that it was actually Guy who sold Angelica to Adrian in exchange for an acting career, which is now about to take off. But now Guy wants Angelica back ... but too late, in the end, he is bitten to death by none other than Angelica ...

 

This very cheap vampire movie is not entirely without interest, as much of its mood and indeed also its story is carried by colours, achieved by coloured lights and tinted lenses, much like the tinted black and white films from the silent era, which of course gives the film a very unique look - especially since I'm not talking about isolated scenes but the entire film. That said though, the film is far from great: Apart from fancy colour effects the direction is merely functional, the story seems to be endlessly dragging up until the finaly, and the actors and actresses uniformly lack charisma to carry the film.

Not withjout interest for sure, but by no means great.
