Because local police are unable to solve the mysterious murders of seven young women in a small village, Inspector Doren (Adrian Hoven) of INTERPOL is assigned to the case. As a result of a talk with an old witch, the inspector begins to suspect that the killings are the work of a vampire. He learns more from some of the villagers, who link the murders to caves under an ancient castle where Professor Adelsberg and his secretary, Karin (Karin Field), are conducting scientific experiments. After tracking the professor to his underground headquarters, Doren finds the seven living dead and discovers that Adelsberg is the vampire. Karin is to be his next victim. With the help of the witch, Doren is able to save Karin and kill Adelsberg by driving a stake through his heart.

In this lush Gothic romp from the Golden Age of Italian horror, Walter Brandi (The Playgirls and the Vampire, The Bloody Pit of Horror) and Graziella Granata (A Taste for Women) star as a young well-to-do couple terrorized by a love-hungry vampire (peplum and krimi veteran Dieter Eppler, The Sinister Monk) who makes his nest in the lower rungs of their estate. Before the bloodsucker can lay unholy claim to the voluptuous lady of the land, the couple enlist the unusual services of Professor Nietzsche (Luigi Batzella, writer/director of notable nasties Nude for Satan and SS Hell Camp), who is more than determined to rid the world of all vampires.
Written and directed by Roberto Mauri (Vengeance is My Forgiveness, Madeline: Study of a Nightmare), Slaughter of the Vampires is a Baroque, beautifully photographed entry in the bosom-heaving world of the romantic vampire.
