Previously filmed in 1932 as Vampyr, Sheridan LeFanu's classic psychological horror tale was given a second go round in 1961 as Blood & Roses (Et Mourir de Plaisir).

Audience Reviews for Et mourir de plaisir (Blood and Roses)(To Die with Pleasure)

One of many films which attempt to recreate Sheridan LeFanu's "Carmilla" but not the best by any means.
Roger Vadim certainly knew how to cast good looking women in his films and everything looks nice but it's supposed to be a vampire film! It just isn't a patch on Hammer's efforts from the same period.
