Summary: A vampire couple is chased through the night by angry villagers. While the female is caught and staked, the male (Dieter Eppler) manages to flee into the wine cellar of a nearby castle, where he - unrecognized - attends a ball. He seduces (and bites) the nobleman's wife who becomes sicker by the day, so the nobleman calls in Dr. Nietzche (Luigi Batzella), a vampire expert, to help him fight the menace.
Note: - Released in America in a re-edited version as "Curse Of The Blood Ghouls", that eliminates around ten minutes of footage, which are key to the continuity of the film.
- Luigi Batzella had quite a career in Eurotrash, directing everything from Spaghetti Westerns to Gothic horror (The Devil's Wedding Night 1973). Another future genre director, Alfredo Rizzo, went on to direct his own vampire film, "The Bloodsucker Leads The Dance" (1975).
