William Hughes – Lust For A Vampire (Sphere, 1971)
Given that the film is so marvelously off the wall, this is a plodding, strangely subdued retelling which doesn’t come close to recalling the glories of the movie. I think t’s possible the fault was with me, reading it when I wasn’t in the right frame of mind, although the way the demise of a central character is skipped over in a couple of “… and then this happened” sentences suggests the author was functioning on auto-pilot.
Mind you, Mr. Hughes didn’t have tops theme song Strange Love to fall back on when the going got ’emotional’, so he was on a hiding to nothing.
