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.

Blood and Roses (1960)

AKA: Et Mourir de Plaisir

Starring: Mel Ferrer, Elsa Martinelli
Director: Roger Vadim

A woman's best friend is about to marry the man she has secretly loved her whole life. She ends up finding a lost tomb of a vampire which causes things to change around the country estate.

My Take:
A stylish and loose adaption of the classic "Camilla" story. The movie probably packed a bigger punch when it was released fifty years ago.
Worth a watch.

Rating: In the middle
