Five years after TERROR IS A MAN became the first international horror hit from the Philippines, producer Cirio Santiago (THE BIG BIRD CAGE) and director Gerry de Leon (BRIDES OF BLOOD) delivered Hemisphere's next landmark shocker: Ronald Remy (MAD DOCTOR OF BLOOD ISLAND) - in a performance Critic After Dark calls "perhaps the most compelling incarnation since Christopher Lee" - stars in this orgy of gothic terror and Filipino pulp, complete with rubber bats, hunchback henchmen, theremin, whippings, rampant Catholicism and radical color tinting that remains unnerving more than half a century later. Amalia Fuentes (CURSE OF THE VAMPIRES) co-stars in "one of the more unusual vampire movies you'll ever see" (DVD Drive-In) - also known as BLOOD IS THE COLOR OF NIGHT and VAMPIRE PEOPLE - now scanned from the only complete 35mm print known to exist.
