    THE VAMPIRE DOLL

    Michio Yamamoto Japan, 1970

    A distinctly chilling response to the 1970s Dracula craze, Michio Yamamoto’s macabre vampire tale nestles among the mysterious woods of the Japanese countryside. Along the eerie hallways of a decrepit gothic mansion, the air is thick with blood-curling dread, as the pull of love triumphs over death.

    LAKE OF DRACULA

    Michio Yamamoto Japan, 1971

    Set in a remote lakeside town where the sunrise cuts across the gloomy sky like a bloody wound, Michio Yamamoto’s moody follow-up to The Vampire Doll chills to the bone. A creepy mix of the gothic and the psychological that aligns the rise of the undead with the fearsome return of the repressed.

    EVIL OF DRACULA

    Michio Yamamoto Japan, 1974

    Fashioning the same gothic atmosphere as seen in the previous entries, the concluding chapter of Michio Yamamoto’s “Bloodthirsty Trilogy” also has the sly mischievousness of exploitation cinema. As prim schoolgirls become enslaved to the night, the lure of vampirism is at once malevolent and erotic.
