Faithful to the sexy, twisted 1974 cult classic by Joseph Larraz, Vampyres is an English-language tale that pulsates with raw eroticism, wicked sado-masochism and bloody, creative gore. Director Victor Matellano (Wax, 2014; Zarpazos! A Journey through Spanish Horror, 2013) 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 will be released October 18, 2016 on DVD and VOD/Streaming.
