WANT TO SEE THIS FILM?

Those brilliant unsung heros and creative people who make our favourite films worth watching, the make up artists, scene painters, camera assistants, special effects programmers and people in the 100s of other jobs that make up the film industry are having to give up working in film - victims of those who think downloading films "doesn't hurt anyone". Sorry to point that out!
Whatsmore, film companies large and small are going out of business because people think it's "allright" to download films for free. Again, sorry to point that out too!
That's why there's not so many good films being made anymore. And it's a real irony, because it's people who like to watch films who are causing all this trouble! They just don't know any better.

If a film's worth seeing, then it's worth paying for. It's obvious really!
Don't download it. BUY IT!

Please copy this message and email it to any of your friends who still thinks it's allright to download films for free. Quickly. Before they ruin it all for the rest of us!

Hooray! A British vampire comedy and a blooming funny one too. Although you can tell instantly they made it on a shoestring, but they did well with it, filling it with exploding vampires and a spooky clifftop castle.

Pamela Kempthorne plays Morticia de'Ath, a vampiress who lives in an old castle on a Cornish island. (Who knew Cornwall had islands? Go figure!) The jokes come pretty thick and fast and it manages to rip the piss out of th old Hammer films, while maintaining the feel (and indeed budget) of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Expect an army of vampire soldiers rampaging through the woods, foggy boat rides, creepy castles, some fantastically funny werewolves and some really funny dialogue.

Also expect some pretty cheap looking special effects. But I think these rather add to the cheap and funny charm of the movie!

reviewed this film and gave it:


This film came out exactly the same time as Lesbian Vampire Killers. You wait years for a British Vampire Comedy then two come at once!

As I recall the press slagged off Lesbian Vampire Killers and pretty much ignored The Vampires of Bloody Island. Pity, cos they're both very funny films.

It's just great to see a British film do vampires and do it in such a funny way. The Brits invented vampires, The Americans just turned them into wusses. Sparkeling in the sunlight- pur-leeze!

The Vampires of Bloody Island keeps to the old idea of vampires being pretty horrible people, but does it with such a strong sense of comedy that tickles my ribs.


MIKE
reviewed this film and gave it:


Are we all talking about the same film here? It's badly lit, badly focused, badly shot, badly acted and badly edited. The 'crew' and I use the term losely, who made this film must have been just out of film school. Everyone's going on about how funny it is, but a few tired old jokes doesn't make up for the fact that it's a very poorly made film. Do yourse;ves a favour and watch a REAL film like The English Patient or The Madness of King George.


DANCING HELENA
reviewed this film and gave it:


Mike, it's a vampire film. No one expects a vampire film to be an Oscar winner. I don't think anybody on this forum cares about lighting. we care about story and entertainment. The Hammer films were badly lit, the Carry On films were badly lit, but did they stand the test of time? Yes. they're still going strong and people love them. And the same is true of The Vampires Of Bloody Island. People love it because it's funny. People love it because the crew that you obviously hate so much obviously loved what they were doing, and that comes across in the film.

I'm not giving it 5 stars, because it's not as you say technically perfect. but is it entertaining? Yes! And that's what I want from a vampire film, TO BE ENTERTAINED. I'd like to see lots more films like this. It's a cult film and deservedly so. You stick to your boring well lit English Patient and Madness of King George. I'll stick to my fun and entertaining (and badly lit) Carry Ons, Rocky Horrors, Monty Pythons and the Vampires of Bloody Island.

Find the fun. You're too uptight!

I'm a BIG fan of Inkubus Sukkubus so wanted to see a film they were on. I love it. It's got some great music on it and it's funny. I love Grunt. Great character. I want a butler like that!


DAVROS
reviewed this film and gave it:


found it on amazon and thought I'd give it a go as I love anything vampire. Glad I did. Like the first reviewer said it's got charm!


NIGHT WING
reviewed this film and gave it:


Vampires of Bloody Island is the ultimate cult movie. Low budget but bloody funny and entertaining. Ideal for a Friday night midnight movie. If you've never seen this film I strongly urge you to hunt down a copy.


TERRY BROOKES
reviewed this film and gave it:


Like a lot of independent films this one can be hard to find. There's usually a few kicking around on Amazon although the price can be quite high. You can watch the trailer at www.bloodyisland.com

Vampire Shop sell it too. Don't know how you managed to miss that one, Terry. Their ads are all over this site! :) www.vampireshop.co.uk
