Orgía Nocturna de los Vampiros, La (1973, SPA) C-79m. SCOPE ** D: León Klimovsky. Starring Jack Taylor, Dyanik Zurakowska, Helga Liné, Manuel de Blas, Fernando Bilbao. Average Euro-horror with some redeeming features. A group of people travelling in an old bus are stranded in a remote village, where everybody seems to have disappeared. Wait for nightfall! Interesting vampire-zombie combination, obviously influenced by Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968), has some chilling moments. Some poorly paced sequences mar the fun (for fans), the score is overbearing and sometimes inappropriate but mostly quite creepy. English titles: THE VAMPIRES' NIGHT ORGY, ORGY OF THE VAMPIRES, and GRAVE DESIRES.
