THE PLAYGIRLS AND THE VAMPIRE (1960)
The Count explains his research into vampirism without explaining the presence of Katia's exhumed corpse on the table before them. That evening, a very much alive (and naked) Katia appears in manager Lucas' (Alfredo Rizzo) bedroom. Vera, on the other hand, notices someone (or something) attempting to enter her locked bedroom, naturally she unlocks the door and goes off wandering about the castle, accidentally opening a secret passageway that leads to the Kernassy family crypt. There she's confronted by the Count and vampirized. Coming to her rescue is...another Count! It turns out that Gabor's 200 year old undead ancestor is responsible for the murders associated with the castle and Gabor's promise of the release that the vampire seeks falls on deaf ears, setting up a final confrontation between the two.
