Summary: Luisa (Helene Remy), Francesca (Tina Gloriani) and her boyfriend Luca (Isarco Ravaioli) have become lost in the forest and seek shelter for the night in an old castle. What they don't know: the castle is called "Castle of the Damned" by the local villagers, who believe vampires roaming the building. While exploring the thought-to-be-deserted castle, the threesome meet countess Olga (Maria Luisa Rolando) and her ugly servant (Walter Brandi). But the countess and her servant are creatures of the night and want to add the trio to the ranks of the undead...
Note: - This film from director Renato Polselli (a doctor in philosophy) was the first true vampire movie ever made in Italy. Freda's "I Vampiri", made in 1956, has nothing to do with classical vampires.
- "L'Amante Del Vampiro" was a very early attempt to combine the vampire and sex-exploitation genres.
