The Vampire and the Ballerina
Trailers From Hell welcomes all movies great and small but sometimes a particular trailer may not be up to the visual quality of the rest of our catalog or is simply too oddball to present in our usual format. Nevertheless, there’s such a wealth of exciting, strange and unusual films out there, we’d be remiss not to call attention to them. We’re happy to present the TFH Misfits.
The Vampire and the Ballerina (L’amante del vampiro) was the second in an unofficial Italian trilogy pairing up a licentious bloodsucker with a sexy dance troupe. The titular star of Vampire and the Ballerina, Walter Brandi, also appeared in the first of these sex/horror outings, The Playgirls and the Vampire. The Monster of the Opera (directed by Ballerina‘s helmer, Renato Poselli) was the third in this shortlived series.
And if you can’t get enough of these sexy vampire shenanigans, check out Joe Dante on Blood and Roses (which just got a proper dvd release in Germany).
