VAMPYRES

A re­make of José Lar­raz’s 1974 cult Bri­tish hor­ror film, this is, if any­thing, even more par­si­mo­nious than the orig­i­nal. And not as good ei­ther.

Two volup­tuous fe­male vam­pires still butcher any­one who comes near their re­mote dwelling, but miss­ing the strange, heady charge of its par­ent this new ver­sion comes across as vac­u­ous and point­less. A de­scent into tor­ture porn flags up its re­dun­dancy.

Ex­tras A Mak­ing Of (13 min­utes); in­ter­view with cast mem­ber Caro­line Munro (four mins); teaser; trailer. Rus­sell Lewin

He’d over­done the Lynx.
