**_Strange, crumbling Village of…The Countess (Helga Liné)_** A small bus of people traveling the stoney mountains northeast of Madrid is forced to bypass to a remote town, which turns out to be a death trap. A Spanish production, “The Vampires Night Orgy” (1973) is Gothic-tinged Euro horror that borrowed its plot from “The Devil’s Nightmare” from two years prior, replacing the castle milieu with an old rural village similar to “Kill, Baby… Kill!” from seven years earlier. People who complain about the title perceive ‘orgy’ in a one-dimensional sense. Actually, an orgy is any actions or proceedings marked by unbridled indulgence of passions, such as an orgy of killing. Redhead Helga Liné naturally stands out in the beauty department, but Dyanik Zurakowska (Alma) is also worth a mention. As usual with these types of flicks, there’s some nudity. Speaking of which, the guy who turns out to be the protagonist has no qualms with a little voyeurism (Jack Taylor). While this is easily on par with “Kill, Baby… Kill!” it’s not as good as “The Devil’s Nightmare” because it lacks the seven deadly sins angle, not to mention the castle. However, the mountain village is awesome in its own way. If you like those two flicks and similar contemporaneous ones like “Messiah of Evil,” you’ll appreciate this. It runs 1 hour, 25 minutes, and was filmed in the heart of Spain, with exteriors shot in the mountains about 25 miles northeast of Madrid in Patones de Arriba and Talamanca del Jarama. GRADE: B-
