John Carradine in 'Las Vanmpiras'
… but I think those are words John Carradine must have muttered to himself on a regular basis. And this movie, Las Vampiras (“The Vampire Women”, 1965), probably had him saying it to himself even more than usual.

I’d planned on doing an Al Adamson movie for this Roundtable, but instead I ended up with something much worse. Las Vampiras is one of five — count ’em, five! — movies that Carradine made in Mexico in the late 1960’s. Excluding Carradine’s performance, it’s terrible. Factor in Carradine, and suddenly it becomes terrible in a whole new wonderful way. It wasn’t supposed to be a comedy, but John had other ideas…
