The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

I, Vampiri (1956)

AKA: Lust of the Vampire / The Devil's Commandments

Director: Riccardo Freda, Mario Bava



Premise:
Dead women are being found around Paris with their blood drained. The police search for reason why with the help of a reporter.

My Take:
This notable film in Italian horror cinema comes off looking great. I'd imagine Bava's influence has a lot to do with it. The story is a bit all over the place with several horror cliches tossed together (except vampires) but remains interesting. A person could watch far worse movies from the era.

Rating: In the middle
