Werewolf vs Vampire Woman (1971)


Since we just had a full moon and the remake of Wolfman is coming out soon, I thought I would break out some old movies for your enjoyment.

Werewolf vs Vampire Woman aka ‘La noche de Walpurgis’ is a film directed by León Klimovsky and stars Paul Naschy.   Paul Naschy has been refereed to as the true king of Spanish horror cinema.

It shouldn’t be a huge surprise that  the Werewolf vs Vampire Woman has received some bad reviews.

I personally think the bad reviews are sparked because fans expect too much from Naschy and considering the time this film was made it is not all that bad – sure I can list about a hundred other films that are better, but why?

Some critics even say that the trailer is way better than the film – but I let you decide.

First, the trailer…

Elvira is traveling through the French countryside with her friend Genevieve, searching for the lost tomb of a medieval murderess and possible vampire, Countess Wandessa.

They find a likely site in the castle of Waldemar Daninsky, who invites the women to stay as long as they like. As Waldemar shows Elvira the tomb that supposedly houses the countess, she accidentally causes the vampire to come back to life, hungrier than ever. Daninsky has a hidden secret of his own, but will it be enough to save the two girls from becoming Wandessa’s next victims?

Now the film…

Let me know what you think – Is the trailer better than the film?
