| I LOVE this movie!
This movie is good old fashioned scary fun, like walking through a "haunted house" at Halloween. The songs are fun. My ten year old niece really likes "I'm just a sucker for your love" (sung by a vampire- get it? "wink-wink"). It's a great Saturday afternoon- popcorn- scary- movie for the whole family (those old enough for trick-or-treat type scares. A refreshing break from the slasher, gory, sicko movies that they keep churning out at an annoying rate these days.

Vincent Price is charming as a sweet, non-lethal vampire (the only time he ever played one, by the way.). Patrick Magee and Donald Pleasance, veterans of the old Amicus films, are terrific also. Rounding out the cast are Britt Ekland, Stuart Whitman, and Simon Baker. I really wish Hollywood would make more movies like this- imaginative stories with great spooky atmosphere instead of gallons of fake blood and body dismemberment.
