overlooked classic vampire film?

While reading a great vampire book for Halloween--Charlie Huston's Already Dead (New York:  Ballantine Books, 2005)--I came across mention of a film by George A. Romero that I had never heard of before!  (I thought I had either seen, or at least heard of, practically every horror film made in the 20th century!)


George A. Romero wrote and directed a vampire movie called Martin, in 1978.  To me, the surprising thing is that the hero of the story comes from Indianapolis, where I live now!  It received a 96 percent approval rating on one review site, but I had never heard of it until I read about it in Huston's novel.


And, today, a zombie film shown on the Syfy Channel said that one of the victims of the bad guys was from Evansville, Indiana (Avery Brooks' hometown, I think).  You don't usually hear about Indiana much, and yet here are two tales that mention it prominently.  Strange, heh?

Spookier than spooky but then again most art connected to George Romero (not forgetting the A) has a life of their own.

miklamar;  You should check out just about any "Hammer" produced flim.  Some were very cheesy, but many were pretty darned good;  Countess Dracula and Vampire Cirucus are well doneVamipre films.   They sound cheesy, but trust me, they are damned good Vampire films.
