Audience Reviews for The Vampire

    A good vampire movie, not great, but enjoyable enough to watch.

    This was actually a great movie. Not sure why they called it The Vampire, but there was 2 punvture wounds to the neck so guess it fits the bill. To me it was more like a Dr Jeckyell Mr Hyde type film, as after taking a pill, which was slipped to the great doctor by his very young daughter, he becomes a Mr Hyde type Vampire, after being bite you don't return from the dead your cells just kind of rot. But it was excellent over all. It comes in the MGM Midnight Madness Collection.

    Thank you Turner Classic Movies for these wonderfully cheesy "B" movies that we just couldn't see anywhere else. John Beal stars in this surprisingly well acted, moderately scripted, camp-fest with some of the worst special effects in the history of Hollywood. I defy anyone not to laugh the first time they see 'the vampire' in full makeup. Could they not afford the extra thirty cents for some plastic fangs?
