A peerless example of a bravura visual imagination abstracting cheap sets into psychedelic textures
Planet of the Vampires is not among the best of the scary sci-fi genre, but seen under the optimum circumstances, fans of schlock or/and vintage Italian horror will find it fun.
It's mainly Bava's masterful invention behind the camera that makes the film work. His movement and timing provide an atmosphere that clearly wasn't there in the script.

I lost interest in wanting to know more about the supernatural manifestations.
Looks great, but dramatically lacking
an interesting, if not entirely successful, attempt at genre blending
