"Vampire Circus" is one of those Hammer Horror movies that fell through the cracks over the years, mainly because it doesn't star Christopher Lee or Peter Cushing. But this little horror movie succeeds through plenty of eerie atmosphere and bloody deaths, as well as some genuinely spooky vampiric revenge.

The evil Count Mitterhaus (Robert Tayman) has been using his human lover Anna (Domini Blythe) to lure little girls into his castle, where he drains their blood. One day the villagers -- led by Anna's husband Albert -- kill the count and destroy his castle. Fifteen years later, the village is being ravaged by a terrible plague, and the villagers believe that it is the curse of Count Mitterhaus.

While the town doctor goes to the city to find a cure, a gypsy circus called the Circus of the Night arrives in town. Unbeknownst to the villagers, the circus is led by a vengeful vampire who intends to destroy the town and resurrect the Count. When children are found dead and monstrous visions destroy the mayor, they must band together and discover what they are up against.

Shapeshifters, vampires, a ruined castle and a secret conspiracy of revenge. "Vampire Circus" is one of those movies that is rather simple plotwise -- evil vampires tormenting a simple Austrian village -- but it's shrouded in gothic atmosphere and a creeping sense of evil that carries it through. Plus it violates that "No killing kids or animals!" horror rule several times, meaning NOBODY is safe.

Part of the creepiness comes from the subtlety of the vampire attacks, twisting the villagers' fears and expectations so that they blame the Count instead of the true villains. It literally takes them most of the story to figure out what's truly happening.

As a long time fan of Hammer Films, this was one of their few later movies that I missed the first time around (HANDS OF THE RIPPER was another). I guess it never came to a drive-in near me. After 1970 I only saw Hammer Films at the drive-ins which I now know was because they had lost their major American distributors and rarely played first run houses outside of the big cities. I never caught it on cable and after having heard about it for years I finally obtained an all region DVD copy from Asia which looked like it was copied from a worn drive-in print but at least I finally got to see it. It is truly unlike any other Hammer film from that time thanks to the long prelude, surreal circus settings, and the fact that many of the victims are children. Now Synapse Films, with this Blu ray/DVD combo release, has rectified the situation by presenting the film the way it originally appeared along with a ton of bonus features.

The first thing I noticed was the improved picture quality and color saturation which made for an especially vivid viewing experience. Next up was the fact that this version was 4 minutes longer (87 vs 83) than my Asian copy. While there don't appear to be any missing scenes, some of them such as the invisible voices at the circus, the demonic panther attack, and the silhouette sequence run longer and make more sense. I had heard that Hammer had run out of time and money with only about 75% of the planned film completed but through clever editing and skillful transitions it hangs together very well. The film has old favorites Adrienne Corri, Thorley Walters, and David Prowse (6 years before Darth Vader) to give it added appeal. I also finally figured out where I had seen Emil, the panther man, before.

Synapse Blu Ray DVD. I very much enjoyed this vampire movie. If you enjoy the great horror movies that Hammer Productions put together then I recommend this movie. I'm no expert on the difference between regular DVD and Blu ray but I was not very impressed with the transfer of this movie.

"Vampire Circus" is a great little film, one of Hammer's best films from the latter part of it's output.

However, why is this disc not available? Release date was Dec 14 and copies have never been available directly through Amazon.

And shame on the third-party sellers charging $222 for a copy! A sad attempt to fleece horror fans!
