Description: The film “Blood Spattered Bride” was based on the novel of Sheridan Le Fanu, “Carmilla”. Newlyweds come to her husband’s family estate, where they’ve been faced by familial curses. Wife, haunted by the ghost of lady in white, pushing the bride to the senseless and brutal killings.
Groovy Sexy Euro Horror, vampires, lesbians and touches of surrealism. Some of this movie is slow moving, but it looks fantastic. Other parts of it are barkingly mad and oh so bloody Yrupian. Maribel Martin and Alexandra Bastedo are both very easy on the eye. However they both turn in excellent performances. On the whole the acting is surprisingly good for an early 70’s Euro shocker. The dubbing is also of a very high standard. All in all very watchable movie, lacking in blood and boobs of Say “Vampyres” but none the worse for it. Enjoy I’m off to watch Vampiros Lesbos
