Vampire Circus

Before he is vanquished, a sinister vampire curses the townspeople responsible for his demise. Plagued by a, uh, plague for years, the town tries to scrape along. Then, one day, a bizarre circus rolls in, with a sinister plan seemingly connected to the vampire.

A pretty damn solid 70's Hammer entry; stylish, a little violent, with just the right amount of sexy naked European women. You also got an evil dwarf, death by panther, scary mirrors, glowing crucifixes, a naked tiger woman, and more.

The best detail is that the circus members, despite I guess being evil, are depicted with a certain amount of sympathy. They care for each other, they get upset when one of their own gets hurt or dies. A nice touch.

I guess I don't have much to say about this one other than if you like the lush, trashy/classy 70's Hammer style, this is a good one.
