The Bloody Vampire (Spanish: El vampiro sangriento) is a 1962 Mexican horror film directed by Miguel Morayta and starring Begoña Palacios, Erna Martha Bauman, and Carlos Agostí.

It is part of a duology of vampire films directed by Morayta, followed by The Invasion of the Vampires (1963).[1][2][3]


Count Cagliostro (Antonio Raxel), whose family has tried for generations to rid the world of vampires, instructs his daughter Inés (Begoña Palacios) to confront Count Frankenhausen (Carlos Agostí) and his vampire henchmen.



Gustavo Subero's book, Gender and Sexuality in Latin American Horror Cinema: Embodiments of Evil, highlighted the Frau Hildegarda character as a "character that best embraces monstrosity while breaking away from patriarchal society", saying that "she is depicted in many instances as more monstrous and evil than the vampire she serves", as "she is not only a helping hand for El Conde, [but] she enjoys the freedom to exercise evil without having to justify it as carrying out someone else's orders." The book credited this to her "[disavowing] the two main characteristics of the female gothic: the 'natural' physical beauty of such creatures and being a blameless victim of patriarchal oppresion".[4] The book Hampones, pelados y pecatrices: Sujetos peligrosos de la Ciudad de México (1940–1960) reached a similar conclusion regarding the film's portrayal of the archetype of malas mujeres ("bad women").[3]

Rogelio Agrasánchez's Cine mexicano de horror: carteles del cine fantástico mexicano, dedicated to the film posters of horror and fantasy films, complimented the film poster of this film and its sequel The Invasion of the Vampires, saying that they featured "wonderful designs in great color and workmanship".[5]

Alexis Puig in El gran libro del vampiro gives the film 1 out of 5 estacas ("stakes"), with his review simply saying "Only for lovers of Aztec terror".[6]
