Blood and Roses (1960)

Directed by Roger Vadim
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

At a remote castle near Rome, a fireworks celebration for an engaged couple accidentally leads to an explosion which uncovers an ancient tomb which town rumor claims harbors a vampire. A young woman is bitten, unleashing her suppressed desires for the couple. A lush romantic melodrama with hints of lesbianism and incest. There is a memorable dream sequence in black and white, except for the blood, of course. A wraparound narrative (deleted in the English language version) suggests it was all just delusions.
