Hello and welcome once more to TimeVault. This time we’re back onto Hammer films and, in a belated tribute to the late Ingrid Pitt, we’ve chosen one of her earliest films in a leading role; The Vampire Lovers (1970), a film based on Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s novella Carmilla.
This film will eventually form part of a loose series with Lust For A Vampire and Twins of Evil known as the Karnstein Trilogy, although Ingrid Pitt does not appear in either of these “sequels”.
I’ve put my favourite of the original film posters here, and linked to the British one here (although it’s so far removed from the actual content of the film it’s not true…). They’re so wonderfully over the top I had trouble deciding which one was preferable!

See you in a fortnight for some foamy fun and farewells with Doctor Who: Fury from the Deep…
