In the early 1970s, British horror studio juggernaut Hammer Films, found a need to re-invent itself. The days of traditional gothic horror sharing (or dominating) the contemporary marketplace for genre cinema had past. Though they would still release ‘safe’ vampire titles featuring their mainstay count, such as SCARS OF DRACULA (1971), DRACULA AD 1972 (1972) and THE SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA (1973), a new batch of films featuring eroticized female bloodsuckers would answer the new, decidedly more scandalous, demands of the growing audience of the genre. They would be known as The Karnstein Trilogy.
