Movie Info

In this lively horror film, a number of young women have mysteriously vanished and now Inspector Doren is assigned to find them. He goes to the village where the seven murdered maidens lived and ends up assisted by the town witch who leads him to a strange laboratory located in the deepest dungeons of an abandoned castle, where they find the blood-chilling solution to the mystery: the slain women have been rendered undead by their ruthless bloodsucking master, a psychotic professor. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Cave of the Living Dead


These living dead are vampires. They are not the debonaire, classy type vampires, but creepy typekinda like Nosferatu (in fact borrowing some camera angles and style directly). A police inspector travels to a rural European village to find the reason behind the death's of half dozen women in as many months. The lone Black person in the village is thought by many to be the killer, while others blame the vampires who live in the caves and rise at midnight. The Black guy is scared of the vampire also at one point asking curiously, "Do you think vampires like Black blood?" Pretty slow with an odd jazzy soundtrack, only worth a watch for vampire completists or fans of 60s Euro horror.


Plays more like a murder mystery than a vampire film,with a few interesting vampire chicks. Not too much to write home about. One surprize-a breif boobie shot of the female lead! For a film made in 1964....very unusual. This was more than likely the reason the Britsh Board of Censors gave it the dreaded Certificate 'X' rating. Ok time waster.
