A Vampire's tale
8 July 2010 | by stones78See all my reviews

This isn't the strongest episode in Night Gallery's library, but it's not even 2 minutes long, so there's not much time to get philosophical about it. The opening music and painting for this short vignette are both creepy and eerie, but that's as far as that goes. Victor Buono stars as the vampire out to collect blood from a sleeping young lady, although Buono would prefer a man(if you catch my drift), but that's another story for another time. The room's dark atmosphere and open window are OK, even when the bat transforms into the vampire is at least average for the early 70's. There isn't much dialog except the punch line when the woman utters "I gave at the office.", then the once hungry vampire sighs and says "sorry" then sighs and flies away, changing from vampire to bat, after he puts his notebook and pencil back in his pocket.
