 I've been wanting to see this Japanese Toho-produced vampire flick for a long time now and finally sat down and watched it and was pretty disappointed. The movie moves at a snails pace and not a whole hell of a lot happens that anyone would consider exciting. This does emulate some of the duller English Hammer bloodsucker movies being made at the same time. There is some cool creepy atmosphere and it's all like an Asian take on Dracula set in a school. I also got a strong SUSPIRIA-vibe thanks to the setting and artsy-style, which is a little weird since that movie hadn't been made yet. Perhaps Dario Argento  was more of a fan of this than I was. Maybe if there was more neck-biting and less talking and lame fights I coulda got into it more. AKA BLOODSUCKING ROSE and THE BLOODTHIRSTY ROSES
 This film is actually the last part of a trilogy of Toho vampire flicks. The other 2 being 1970's THE NIGHT OF THE VAMPIRE and 1971's LAKE OF DRACULA. I've heard those two are superior to this one so maybe I shoulda started at the beginning.
