Planet of the Vampires

"Grim"

Planet of the Vampires Review


1960s sci-fi was always a budget affair, and Planet of the Vampires is no exception to the rule. Directed by Mario Bava, who would later go on to fame as a master of the splatter genre, the vampires here are more like zombies who embody the minds of the hapless explorers who land on this otherwise desolate world, The Thing-style. Unfortunately, even Bava's camera tricks and boxum heroines can't save a plodding story and typically cheesy sets. The ending's a hoot, though.
