Anthony Higgins in 1970s
You haven't seen it yet? Really?
Hammer Production made one of the greatest vampires' movies in 1972. Plot: people who killed a Count, the vampire, and their families should be killed for his resurrecting. Revenge, death and hell waits for you. I was very surprised when in 1990 the director of this movie, Robert Young, made some "Jeeves and Wooster" TV series episodes.
But we are talking about Anthony Higgins' role. After his "brave boy" part in "Taste the Blood of Dracula" two years later he appears as Emil, a gypsy, who is a vampire and a werewolf (oh, no, his an animagus, cause he is a black panther, not a wolf), and he is also a dead Count's cousin. It takes him fifteen years to come to the aid to his cousin. Well... he came with a circus where the most of the troupe are vampires too.
Anthony is very handsome as the swarthy gypsy in red shirt and has very big and white canines when he needs a new victim. He plays good and in the end his personage dies fast. I was frightened in my childhood. Nevertheless, I still like this movie and it seems to me it is not as boring as some other Hammer's films of these years.
