First, a bit of history. The Vampyre was written in 1819 by John W. Polidori. It was the first Vampire story to ever be published in English... Thanks Wikipeidia.com
Now for the movie. Paul Naschy plays Lord Ruthven, a vampire who stalks and kills a young woman. That is really all you get here in this short film. The truth is it sucks! The Vampyre was to dark to see and completely uninteresting. Naschy is old as Nosferatu in this one and it is one hell of a downer. Don't watch it!
