Erotic horror remake Vampyres coming to DVD and VOD in October

Director Joseph Larraz’s 1974 Spanish/British erotic horror masterpiece Vampyres is one of the high marks of ’70s female vamp cinema, a melancholy, explicit pulp fantasy that has lost none of its power.

Remaking such an important film isn’t necessary and, on the surface, seems like a doomed endeavor. And yet Spanish filmmaker Victor Matellano (Wax) has done just that… and done it very, very well.

Matellano’s Vampyres is an English-language tale that pulsates with raw eroticism, wicked sado-masochism and blood, blood blood! Matellano sets his story in a stately English manor inhabited by two older lesbian vampires and with their only cohabitant being a man imprisoned in the basement. Their lives and lifestyle are upended when a trio of campers come upon their lair and seek to uncover their dark secrets, a decision that has sexual and blood-curdling consequences. The film is infused with eloquent and atmospheric cinematography, impressive special effects makeup from master Colin Arthur (The Neverending Story, Conan the Barbarian, 2001: A Space Odyssey) and stars screen genre icon Caroline Munro (The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, At the Earth’s Core, The Spy Who Loved Me, Maniac, Slaughter High).

Vampyres is coming on DVD and VOD/Streaming from edgy imprint Artsploitation Films on October 18th.
