    When a bus load of tourists has to stop for the night in a small European village, they are greeted by no one as everyone is gone. The next morning everyone is back from what was told to them a funeral for a village member. Things then start to concern them. I like this movie it doesn't follow the usual tired tropes that most vampire movies did back then. Fun watch.

    This movie is turrible; the high rating reflects the level of enjoyment I get from watching it! Scary scary vampires go crazy at night and eat body parts to cheesy "Spagetti western"music.

    A group of servants are stranded in a mysterious village when their bus breaks down. Great title, but terribly misleading: a more accurate description for this snoozer would be THESE VAMPIRES MIGHT BORE YE.

    Unfollowable, confusing, and utterly dull. The atmosphere is decent and the characters are s-so, but the forgettable story and the small amount of vampire scenes make this film mostly lacking.

    Despite the title, there isn't actually a vampire orgy in this movie.

    The Vampire Night Orgy (AKA Grave Desires, AKA Orgy of the Vampires) is nowhere near as intriguing as its title would suggest. It may be a cult movie, but its not that great a cult movie. To be fair, its not complete garbage either. It's not nonsensical or full of howl-inducing visuals or dialogue. It has a slight cynical edge to it, and it sort of knows what it is and what it's doing. If you look at it that way, it's actually worth a watch or two. Don't get me wrong though. There's plenty of horrible dialogue and cheesy moments to go around (especially with the vampires themselves), but it seems to be trying to do something more than other movies like it. I particularly liked the seduction scene wherein the Countess bites her lover and then throws him over the balcony to the waiting vampires below. The story seems common by today's standards, too. A group of tourists find their way to a small village after the driver has had a heart attack, only to be taken out one by one by the vampires of the village. I also liked the ax-wielding maniac who will do basically anything that the Countess says, not to mention the cannibalism. It's definitely not a boring movie, but it isn't completely good either. It's very much like The Wicker Man, which I'd say is the movie's biggest cinematic soul mate. I'd suggest a rental, or even pick it up if you can find it somewhere cheap.

    Compared to many of the other horror films that emerged during the 70s The Vampires' Night Orgy is a bit tame. But, it creates such a foreboding atmosphere, and a strong feeling of dread throughout its 80+ minute run-time, that the film easily ended up being an enjoyable watch.

    Hokey Spanish horror film, the acting isn't too bad though and it starts out pretty well, but it sinks into some very silly scenes.

    When a movie starts with vampire love scenes set to jazz music-which are neither sexy nor scary- and ends with a metaphorical gang rape and the murder of a young girl by a ghost-like boy, one realizes that there were some serious directing errors that occurred. On top of this, the story does not presume enough, the filming style is dull, and the music (as already alluded to) is just wrong for the film.

    The discovery of Charles Bronson's long lost brother Guido was definitely the driving force of the film.
