    I remember a Hammer one with a woman who was an Ancient Egyptian Vampire. May have turned into a black cat or just had one around. For some reason it scared me a bit.

    I saw Suspiria not so many years ago, very weird but it made sense, and had Joan Bennett in it who was earlier in the Dark Shadows gothic soap (and many movies before that).

    Another I remember liking was Blood On Satan's Claw which had Anthony Ainley and Wendy Padbury... one was pre-Dr. Who and the other post.

    I remember enjoying "Dolls" very much when it first came out to rent. I preferred it to the similar "Puppet Master", though "Dolls" didn't spawn the sequels that "Puppet Master" did.

    The Egyptian vampire does sound like "Blood from the Mummy's Tomb". Peter Cushing was supposed to be in it, but had to pull out after the death of his wife.
