Special thanks to Horizon Video and Karen Wong
a budget that wouldn't be the envy of even the most amateur video directors but
with the benefits of the most sophisticated techniques and special optical effects,
Jess Franco offers us a film undeniably the best of the 1990s within the "Cult
of Jess Franco:" VAMPIRE BLUES. Appearing like a sublime musical comic strip or
an experiment with the devil, the film has a deliberate slow pace which repays
the viewer by being perfectly fascinating. It reflects the most tenacious obsessions
of the auteur and VAMPIRE BLUES is undoubtably the strongest and the purest film
conceived by Jess Franco since his glory days with Golden Films. Outrageous, obessesive,
irritating, hypnotic, and crazily audacious, VAMPIRE BLUES is a superb blasphamy
of cinema, a deliciously toxicating work, a vampire film that resembles no other.
It's a veritable virtual trip which, without a doubt, will be adored by surrealists.
Pardoxically, the thiness of funds serves the film very well and it appears -
at different moments - to give recall the classic auteurs of the American underground
such as Kenneth Angers, Andy Warhol or Paul Morrisey. VAMPIRE BLUES will be adored
by many and even though some may throw up their hands, others will bow down. But
it won't leave any viewer indifferent. The film is a gift and is already - within
this specific genre - a huge classic. Apparently, Jess Franco seems to have found,
in the persons of Kevin Collins and Peter Evanko, the
producers he has been waiting for forever. Bravo to them."
