OK, so I picked up one of those cheap Madacy Killer Creature Double Feature disc's the other day, lol. It was only like 6 bucks and featured both "Track Of The Vampire" and "Nightmare Castle" with Barbara Steele. "Nightmare Castle" was tough to watch because the print was so bad and so old and scratchy. Also, the dubbing was completely out of synch. The words would come out and then the mouth would move. The film lists a run time of 90 minutes but it actually ran more like 80 so I have no idea how much was cut. Anyway, back to the main reason for my post, the saving grace of the disc was a film starring William Campbell called "Track Of The Vampire". The film was in black and white and ran 80 minutes. It was made in 1966 and directed by Stephanie Rothman and Jack Hill. Campbell is an artist living in Venice, CA. who thinks he is reincarnated from a 15th century ancestor who was also an artist but burned at the stake as a vampire. His mania leads him to stalk women, kill them, dip them into molten wax and then paint their bodies. In the end, the victims return to life for revenge. OK, the film sounds hokey but I have to say I really enjoyed it! The movie was photographed in a bizarre manner, creating a surreal and extremely atmospheric feel. There are many outdoor location shots that seem downright eerie allowing the film to act as an almost extended episode of "The Twilight Zone" or "One Step Beyond". There is some odd history to the film also because director Hill was fired by Roger Corman during shooting and Rothman then took over. Also, Rothman then had to incorporate footage from a Yugoslavian film Corman bought the rights to. Really weird but probably also explains why the outdoor Venice, CA. locales sometimes appeared beautifully European. Anyway, I thought it was an excellent and interesting film and I'd love to see it get a respectable DVD release sometime in the future.
