MOVIE ADS: THE BLOODY VAMPIRE aka EL VAMPIRO SANGRIENTO
Newspaper ad from EL DIARIO ( from New York city U.S.A. )
THE BLOODY VAMPIRE is from Mexico, and I saw it on television as a kid.
It was written and directed by Miguel Morayta ( 1907 – 2013 ).
It stars Carlos Agostí, Martha Bauman, and Begona Palacios ( 1941 – 2000 ).
I think this movie has got a genuinely spooky vibe.
There's a beautifully filmed scene involving a stagecoach.
FYI: Begona Palacios was Sam Peckinpah's wife.
Begona Palacios in a tv commercial for V8 juice and a newspaper notice of her death ( from the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL - March 3, 2000 ).
This movie contains one of my favorite cinematic bats of all time.
I don't know if this movie was ever released on legit VHS domestically.
As for DVD, BLOODY VAMPIRE is a somewhat rare flick. In fact, it's so rare, I've only seen a few grey-market discs for sale.
The only region one "pressed" DVD that I know of, is UNDEAD: THE VAMPIRE COLLECTION by MILL CREEK. It's a twenty movie collection that usually sells for five dollars or less. The movie is FULLscreen and in decent shape.
