Blood Bath (Track of the Vampire) (1966)
Movie InfoThis low-budget vampire quickie is distinguished mainly by the presence of director Stephanie Rothman, who emerged from Roger Corman's New World Pictures (for whom she directed the exploitation classic The Student Nurses) to become an acclaimed feminist filmmaker. The piecework story incorporates footage shot by original director Jack Hill, combined with incongruent elements from a Yugoslavian supernatural thriller titled Operation Titian which Corman obtained for a song, tied loosely together by new vampire material shot by Rothman. This may partially explain why the ancient Slavic vampire featured in the film decides to possess the body of a cheesecake photographer in California, who then murders his models in the name of Art. As one might imagine, this is pretty difficult to follow, but there are some good performances -- particularly from William Campbell as the haunted shutterbug -- and some fairly suspenseful scenes. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi … More

... plays like a serious version of Corman's cult black comedy Bucket of Blood, with William Campbell as the tormented creator whose paintings meld art and murder.
Audience Reviews for Blood Bath (Track of the Vampire)
Not sure why this movie has two titles, and not sure why it even had the title vampire in it, as the killer in this movie attacked both day and night. Nither title fit the movie,A movie made during a time when beatniks were cook, yes even before the hippies, and trash art was cool, we have a artist who paints portraits of women in bloody scenes, his models are all killed. No police on the case as women disappear and mo one seems to care, movie has many unexplainable cuts, and many mistakes, in final chase scene you see 3 guys chasing killer, then sometimes two or one or four, it just doesn't make sense, a very bad copy of the film most of the time scenes were very dark, no one would waste the time restoring this one. This was most defiantly in the drive -ins. 2 starsMore
