  • Vampire Lovers Super 8 4 x 400

    Hi folks
    Does any one know who distributed a 4x400ft version of Vampire Lovers on Super 8 ?

    John,

    Was there a 4x400' version? There is a 3x400' Italian cutdown. Here's Brian Hendel's thread about that release.

      I have a vague feeling it was Derann, but will need to check.

        I think it was Derann. Good print a bit grainy in places but covered the story very well.

          Hi all! There is no official super 8 release of The Vampire Lovers... except for a trailer. Unlike the other two Karnstein films, Lust for a Vampire and Twins of Evil - for which there were features and digests (Derann & Walton, respectively). I once had a 4 X 400' bootleg of VL in the 70's (from a bootlegger in Louisville) that was awful quality and that Italian release is clearly an unauthorized dupe.

            How coincidental, here's a listing of VAMPIRE LOVERS with good color:

                I would beware …. Definitely a dupe. Notice the color shift… I predict there’s a splice every 50’. If this was officially released I would know.

                Def not Derann!

                  Thanks for the information Brian. Yes that listing is ours hence my question as we couldnt find any information either. It came as part of a large collection from the estate of a horror/sci fi collector. We have provided a range of screenshots and condition description but cant attribute it to a distributor. So we will leave it to potential bidders to decide their interest in this one

                    One of those under the counter jobs we don’t talk about. You know Derann weren’t saints 😇.

                    My print wasn’t bad I got it from Derann second hand. It’s not as good as Lust for a Vampire and not in the same room as Twins of Evil but not bad. I’ll stick to Blu ray.

                      Do you know what film stock it is on that could help. Various labs used certain stocks and some distributors used only one lab.

                        Hi Brian. I have put a photo of the film stock on the listing.

                          Ah, I see! The black edging rather than clear is a bit of a giveaway for it not being a legitimate print.

                            Legitimate smidgemite! It exists on super 8 and isn't so danged bad! Be Happy and say "thanks" to those who loved the film so much that they would print it on super 8, no matter what the bloody stock!

                              We were all only trying to help John find out the answer to his original question "Who released it?" not judge them.
