Synopsis

The Vampires of Bloody Island is a cult British vampire comedy that injects a strong modern humour into the classic vampire films of the Hammer generation.

In her crumbling castle clinging to the rocks of a Cornish island, a vampire noblewoman, Morticia de'Ath (Pamela Kempthorne), aided by an unconventional alchemist Dr N. Sane (John Snelling) and a resurrected corpse, Grunt, (Leon Hamilton) makes a radical scientific discovery of importance to vampires worldwide.

To complete her mission, Morticia commands her dead manservant to lure two innocent soft drink sellers from London towards the deeply superstitious village of Bloody Bay, and the much feared Bloody Island.
Morticia ensnares the pair but is interrupted by the vampire hunter (and ex-window cleaner) Professor Van Rental (Oliver Gray).

Morticia revives her vast and heavily armed vampire army and engages in two similtanious battles: one large, loud and bloody, the other small and deeply personal!
