Dan and Bradley are joined by their good friend JOHN ARMINIO to discuss THE BLOODTHIRSTY TRILOGY. A very stylish series of vampire films from the 1970’s directed by Michio Yamamoto.

Join us while we kind of discuss The Vampire DollLake of Dracula, and Evil of Dracula and then listen to Bradley get kicked out of the library.



THE BLOODTHIRSTY TRILOGY CLIPS / TRAILERS and FREE STREAMS

My usual ‘watch before you listen warning’ is not necessarily in effect for Michio Yamamoto’s BLOODTHIRSTY TRILOGY. It doesn’t matter much in this case because the films are less about plots and reveals and more about mood and vibe. This is warm apple pie cinema. The first time I watched THE VAMPIRE DOLL (1970) I watched without subtitles and still enjoyed it. The movie was somewhat improved by my knowing what the fuck was going on when I later watched with subtitles, but not by much.

All three films in the trilogy were produce and distributed by Toho Studios in Japan. For fans of Godzilla films you will find quite a few crossover actors as well as a score by Riichiro Manabe who composed music for the great GODZILLA VS. HEDORAH.
