Episode #006 – The Vampire Lovers
After last month’s discussion of Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter (insert the Captain Kronos opening theme stinger here!), the Down Placers continue their look at 1970s Hammer Vampire films by taking a good hard look at Ingrid Pitt in the first installment of the Karnstein Trilogy, The Vampire Lovers (dir. Roy Ward Baker). This film is one of Casey’s Top Five Hammer films. Derek has seen bits and pieces of the film over the years. Scott is watching it for the first time. They may have differing opinions about the film, but they all agree on one thing – Peter Cushing is amazing.
