Cast includes Hammer vets Honor Blackman (TO THE DEVIL...A DAUGHTER) and Geoffrey Keene (TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA), both known for their prominent roles in the James Bond series. Down in the cast list is Ferdy Mayne, unforgettable as Count Von Krolock in Roman Polanski's brilliant comic tribute to Hammer, DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES/THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS.
