Jurek (George Hilton) is a 4000 year-old vampire, has grown wary of his existence and now he only wants to die ... problem is, his vampire instincts won't let him be killed just like that much less commit suicide, so he invites a singer, a dancer, an actor and an actress (who are by the way all terrible) to his castle promising them a role in his next horror film (he is also a movie director) - but actually he just wants them to find out how to kill him (he's immune to the crucifix, garlic and even a stake through the heart) and get it over with. Problem is, he will also be trying to kill them. The other problem is, our youngsters have no idea how to kill him, his only hints are that the secret has something to do with one of his films and with Dorian Gray ... which is not much of a hint at first, but after quite a number of shocks and chases, our youngsters figure out that he's only alive and kicking as long as the movie (a vampire movie by the way) exists - and just as Jurek mounts his final attack, they burn the film, and quite drastically, the vampire burns too and dies ...


As a horror movie, this film is a desaster: It's almost amazingly blunt (without being drastic), the script is just plain silly, there are no shocks as such, the whole thing is totally free of either suspense or atmosphere, George Hilton hams up his role as the baddie way too much, the other actors are just bad, and 80's hairdoes and fashion and the occasional piece of 80's synthie Euro pop doesn't help one bit either. My guess is though that this film was actually intended as a comedy ... as which it isn't much better, despite the occasional attempt at fun the film is almost joke-free, the timing is off and none of the actors seems to have any talent for comedy. What remains is just a bad film that's not even so bad it's good.
