Vampires Night Orgy (1973)
81 min.
Directed by León Klimovsky.
With Jack Taylor, Helga Liné, Dyanik Zurakowska, José Guardiola, Charo Soriano, Manuel de Blas, David Aller.
Letting El Hombre Lobo Paul Naschy sit this one out, director Klimovsky serves up this moderately enjoyable Spanish vampire dish.

A group of service workers find themselves stranded in a small mountain villa while they wait for repairs to their broken down bus.

But slowly the poor posse begins to realize the sleepy town into which they've strayed is home to a coven of ravenous blooddrinking vampires led by Countess Liné.

And on tonight's menu: helpless visitors!

This lowkey eurohorror is not without its charms, including some moody dark photography and a nicely tense climax.

Best scene: the clever vampire ambush in the bus.

Lesson here: a chopped off finger in your meat stew is not haute cuisine.

Aka Orgy of the Vampires.

Spanish: La Orgía nocturna de los vampiros.
