I have always been a fan of the Carmilla story from Joseph Sheridan le Fanu and Vampire Lovers is one of my favorite movie remakes of his book. Naturally then I have heard about Blood and Roses.
This movie is not as faithful to the story as say Vampire Lovers, but certainly more so than Twins of Evil. The relationship between Carmilla and Georgia is less overt and less explicit than in either telling (short story or movies) but that could also be the time it was made.
As far as horror films go, there are movies with more blood and more outright horrors. But this is a beautifully crafted movie with great acting. You could almost see it as a tamer sequel of The Vampire Lovers.
Tally: Watched 19, New 15
