Vampire Movies From 1972

I recently watched two vampire movies from 1972.    The infamous movie posters (shown below) were the inspiration for my 1972-vampire-movie marathon.  “Vampire Circus” takes place in an old European town during the time of the plague.  The circus of gypsies have an ulterior motive for their presence.    I was a bit perplexed by the vampires shape shifting into so many non-traditional forms, such as a black panther.  In “Dracula A.D. 1972, hippies in London resurrect the undead.  While I enjoyed seeing the very authentic culture of the early seventies, the dated soundtrack in this film removes any anxiety that may have been built by the storyline.  If you are a vampire enthusiast, both movies are fun to watch.
