More than likely if you've ever heard of Spanish filmmaker José Ramón Larraz, it's because you know of his erotic vampire classic Vampyres starring the lovelies Anulka Dziubinska (Playboy's Miss May 1973) and Marianne Morris (who also did a nude pictorial for the British men's magazine Mayfair in October, 1976). Vampyres is a dreamy, atmospheric gothic tale filmed on the set that Hammer Films made famous, Oakley Court. Larraz would become known for his moody, soft- focused look of his films, including the super sleazy Satanic horror of Black Candles (aka Los ritos sexuales del diablo) from 1982. But a few years before that in 1974, the same year as Vampyres, Larraz went the opposite way and made a slow burning, suspenseful, darkly psychological and yes, atmospheric take on Roman Polanski's Repulsion called Symptoms.
