Grave of the Vampire is a 1972 American horror film directed by John Hayes.
In the 17th C, Charles and Sarah Croyden were vampires hunted by the Church of England. In 1846, Sarah Croyden was burned as a vampire in Salem, Mass. In the late 1930's, Caleb Croft [Michael Pataki], murderer and rapist, was accidentally electrocuted in Boston. Three years later he rises from his grave.
Based on the idea that Croyden and Croft are the same 'man', the movie opens in the graveyard where Croft awakens, kills a college student, and rapes the girlfriend. She gives birth to baby James Eastwood [William Smith] who prefers blood to human milk. Some 30 years later, James attempts to avenge Mom by seeking out his vampire father who has now become Adrian Lockwood, college professor of mythology. A few night classes, seances, and cold murders later, son exposes father and stakes him with a table leg through the heart. At this moment, son cuts his vampire teeth, and the movie ends with "The End--or is it?
The film is also known as Seed of Terror.
Several years after his death by electrocution in the late 1930s, ghoulish rapist/murderer Caleb Croft (Michael Pataki) rises from his crypt and brutally assaults young Leslie Hollander (Kitty Vallacher). Leslie becomes pregnant by Croft and delivers a baby boy, whom she nurses with bottles of blood. The child matures into the ruggedly handsome James Eastman (William Smith), who sets out on a mission to find and kill his diabolical father. Eastman enrolls in a college night course that his father is teaching as Professor Lockwood. Following a seance hosted by the professor for his students, James confronts his father in a showdown between good and evil.
