The Vampire Lovers

So, I haven't posted any Hammer film fan art in awhile so here's a good way to (almost) end the year. 'The Vampire Lovers' from 1970. This is one of my faves, and Ingrid Pitt is just fantastic in this one.


  1. Oh my!! That has to be my favorite that you have done!! It is perfect! :D


  2. fantastic, & feel free to show us any Vampire Circus art you might've done too!...

  3. Man, I REALLY need to try to track down all those great Hammer movies. Of course, I'll probably buy all of them, only to have them all released on Blu-Ray 6 months later!!

    Great piece!

  4. Thank you so much!!

    Frog Queen, I'm glad you like it. :D
    Since it's one of my favorite Hammer films, I really wanted it to turn out nice. I was pretty pleased with the results.

    Prof. grewbeard, Vampire Circus is one of the few Hammer Horrors that I've NEVER seen. I am hoping that it will get released on DVD soon, along with 'Hands of the Ripper' and 'Twins of Evil'. I have a really old third gen VHS copy of 'Twins'.

    Gill-Man, I'm going to try and hold out on upgrading to Blu-Ray as long as possible. In fact, the only way they'll get me to switch is when they stop making DVD's altogether. I will say that you can get some Hammer for very cheap. There is a Dracula disc that has 4 movies on 1 disc. And 'Vampire Lovers' is available on a Midnite Movies double feature disc with 'Countess Dracula'. Both are about $10 each.

  5. I agree with the other comments; it's definitely among my favorites. I am a HUGE fan of Ingrid Pitt and am absolutely head over heels in love with her.

    In other news, I've bestowed upon you an award:

  6. Thanks!! I also love Ingrid. She is one of my favorite Hammer Girls.

    Thanks for the award! I will try to post it as soon as I can.

  7. this is so rad. I'm blown away by the art and it's inspiration .
