Not as good Blind Dead, but a decent slice of Eurocult
Amando de Ossorio is definitely more famous for his excellent ‘Blind Dead’ series, and while this film is nowhere as good as that series (overall), The Lorelei’s Grasp certainly has its moments and the film is mostly fun to watch, although it has to be said that it’s a rather long way away from brilliant. The film is very much in the Eurohorror style; although the plot seems to take more influence from classic monster films of the UK and USA (Hammer Horror’s The Reptile sprang to mind for me). The story is actually quite a good basis for a horror film and follows the idea of a beautiful woman that turns into a horrible monster known as ‘The Lorelei’ when the moon is full. She has been living under the Rhine in Germany for centuries, and hunting for human blood at night. However, when The Lorelei decides to kill one too many young girls at the local boarding house, the authorities decide to hire a hunter named Sirgurd to track down and kill the monster.
It’s obvious that this film was made with a low budget, but even so; the director manages to create a fabulous Eurohorror atmosphere, and not even the special effects are all that bad. There’s a fair amount of gore, and while the monster itself looks silly – that is both to be expected, and kind of fun in its own way. The plot itself is a little choppy, and the film definitely isn’t very well paced. Certain plot points seem forced, while others seem more than just a little bit silly – the section with the scientist, for example. I have to say that this film could have been better; I’d have preferred something more along the lines of a Giallo style monster movie. It’s odd, considering the nature of the plot, that the film appears to be pretty much humourless; but its serious tone only really comes off as being inappropriate when it comes to actually showing the monster. Overall, The Lorelei’s Grasp is a good cheesy little horror film, and comes recommended to Eurohorror fans…just don’t go in expecting too much.
She’ll eat your heart out!
When the screaming stops?!? The screaming NEVER stops, baby! This sadly obscure and obviously cheap-produced gem is an authentic Spanish exploitation highlight and it’s about time it gets the appreciation of real horror fans it deserves! Even though more than 30 years overdue, director Amando de Ossorio finally received the much-earned respect for his “Blind Dead” quadrology and I hope that “Lorelei’s Grasp” follows soon, as it’s as least as fascinating and memorable as the saga of the Templar-zombies. The basic premise of this film is inspired by a terrific ancient myth and centers on a beautiful girl living in a cave underneath the Rhine. When the night falls, Lorelei mutates into a hideous watery creature and sets out to maul defenseless people, as she needs to eat the hearts in order to prolong her own existence. Considering the brutality of the first killing, the concerned teacher of a nearby girls’ school insists on hiring a watchman to protect her students and he the hunky Tony Kendall quickly becomes obsessed with the mysterious Lorelei and, of course, romantically involved with the beautiful teacher. As said, “The Lorelei’s Grasp” is a magnificent film! Amando de Ossorio masterfully combines old-fashioned tension with stylish eroticism and really graphic gore. The build up to when the Lorelei-monster mangles another victim is atmospheric and creepy, yet the actual kill is nasty as hell! The decors and filming locations are often breathtaking and every woman that walks through the screen is a genuine beauty, especially Silvia Tortosa in her role as the teacher. There’s not a single boring moment in the entire film and even the slightly disappointing finale didn’t bother me that much. The monster design and some of the bloody make-up effects will probably seem ridiculous to nowadays CGI-horror fanatics, but they won’t be searching for this rare film, anyway. To any other fan of vintage 70’s euro-horror, “The Lorelei’s Grasp” comes with my highest possible recommendation!
