El vampiro (English: The Vampire) is a 1957 Mexican horror film, directed by Fernando Mendez. The film is about Marta, a young woman, who travels to her childhood village, only to find that one of her aunts is dead and another is under the influence of Mr. Duval, who later turns out to be a vampire whose name is the Count Karol de Lavud. It is possibly the first movie to actually show a vampire with elongated canines. F.W. Murnaus Nosferatu (Max Schrek) had elongated incisors; Tod Brownings Dracula (Bela Lugosi) did not show his teeth at all.

This film can therefore be seen as a link between the Universal and the Hammer presentations of vampires.

In this Mexican horror movie a scary bloodsucker is loose on the streets of contemporary Mexico and he is trying to con a young woman out of her family fortune. He first tries by charming the girl's vulnerable aunt. Later he buries the girl alive. Thankfully she is saved and soon someone drives a stake through the evil human leech's heart.
