Blood of the Vampires is a 1966 Filipino horror movie directed by Gerardo de Leon and starring Amalia Fuentes, Romeo Vasquez, and Eddie Garcia. The movie revolves around two siblings, siblings Eduardo (Romeo Vasquez) and his sister, Virginia (Amalia Fuentes) who are traveling to their father's castle in the countryside to visit him. Upon arriving at the castle, they are met with strange occurrences.
Soon after they arrive, strange things begin to happen- Eduardo is seemingly entranced by a woman named Anna, who inexplicably appears around the castle despite no one knowing who she is. Virginia becomes drawn to an old painting of a man named Armand that hangs in one of the castle's rooms. To her surprise, shortly after the discovery of the painting, the man in the portrait, Armand (Eddie Garcia), appears in the flesh, seemingly drawn to Virginia.
As the siblings explore the castle's many rooms and dusty corners, they begin to uncover the dark secrets that the castle and its inhabitants are hiding. Elvira (Vic Silayan), the family's long-time servant, warned Virginia and Eduardo about the many spirits and malevolent beings residing in the castle. Eduardo has a close encounter with what appears to be a ghost, and Virginia stumbles upon an old diary filled with dark spells and incantations.
Suddenly, Virginia becomes the target of the local vampire queen, who seeks revenge for the loss of her own son who was killed years earlier at the hands of Virginia's father. As the siblings try to unravel the mysteries surrounding the castle, they soon realize that they are not alone - dark forces are at work, with long-standing family feuds and rivalries pitting brother against brother and father against daughter.
As the plot draws to its climax, love, deception, and betrayal combine to create a frenzied and terrifying atmosphere. The movie's climactic finale sees the castle caught in a chaos of magic spells, bloody showdowns, and fiery explosions. But the vampires' reign of terror is over, as the siblings escape to freedom and to a new dawn.
In summary, Blood of the Vampires is a movie that offers a dark and stylized interpretation of traditional vampire tales while showcasing a surprising level of complexity in plot and character development. It's a classic Filipino horror film that offers plenty of suspense, scares, and tense moments, and fans of the horror genre should definitely check it out.
