Lucille has died, and the vast fortune she has left behind calls every greedy relative to her mansion, and soon enough, the bunch of greedy relatives decide to gang up on Barbara, Lucille's innocent and honest niece, and her husband Lake.

Then though, Lucille starts wandering the premises as a vampire (or so it seems), people start dieing starting with Barbara's uncle Flinch, a sinister butler and his assistant Lobo are introduced into the plot, and mysterious Doctor Acula shows up, giving enigmatic advice, and nobody is sure if he is here to help the greedy bunch at the mansion or just trying to scare the shit out of them.

Ultimately, all the greedy relatives who have not yet died (and some who have died actually) kill each other, until only Barbara and Lake survive, Doctor Acula is revealed to be nothing more than an insurance investigator and Lucille the vampire actually her sister in disguise.

Well, all's well that ends well.

 

Originally, The Vampire's Tomb was a scrip Ed Wood wrote with Bela Lugosi in the role of Dr.Acula in mind, but when Bela died, the whole thing came to nothing ... until Andre Perkowski got his hands on the script of course, and turned the whole thing into a film in best Ed Wood-tradition, with Lugosi stand-ins doubling for the late actor himself ... and the film turned out pretty weird and pretty well, as Perkowski is one of the few directors that uses the Ed Wood reference not as an excuse for bad directing and numerous angora sweater jokes, but diligently tries to replicate the style and feel of an Ed Wood-movie, but without giving up his own, personal style: So The Vampire's Tomb is filled up with lots of intentionally-unintentionally silly dialogue, mismatching stock footage taken from wherever, Criswell-predictions making little sense either in the movie's context of taken out of context, campy performances, and clumsy attempts to cover up the absence of lead actor Bela Lugosi. Now this all still could have added up to little more than a bad comedy, but Perkowski's inherent understanding of his source material (and of Ed Wood in general) paired with his own skills as a director instead turn this into a great piece of weird, surreal, dreamlike cinema that somehow has to do as much with the masterpieces of Guy Maddin as with the (highly enjoyable) drive-in trash of Ed Wood.

Recommended.
