| One of the last of the Hammer classics
I first saw this movie years ago in a chopped-up edited for television form, although I was recently able to see it in what looks like its complete version.

I remember distinctly that Vampire Circus got terrible reviews in the 1970s. Our TV Guide rated it at ZERO stars, but time seems to have softened that harsh criticism, and it's now regarded as a semi-classic.

It's got the great look and feel of classic Hammer horror, and it gets by without Lee, Cushing and the rest. David Prowse makes an appearance as the strongman, one of the few times you see him not heavily made up. For what it's worth, the script is actually a little better than some other more highly regarded horror films.

While it's not the best thing Hammer ever produced, you'll want to see it at least once if you're a fan of those movies.
