This is a horror movie that I can't remember the title of. All I can remember is that the action happens in a castle or mansion. The people of this place get seemingly drunk on blood for some reason. There is this one scene where the guests that are visiting the castle/mansion are trapped in a cellar.

A bald man, a young woman and a young man are there. The bald man gets dragged behind a white curtain and all you can see is blood on the curtain and hear screaming from one of the men. The killer uses a knife. The killer then feeds blood to the young woman which makes her faint. The killer cuts the bald man up so he can have his blood, and I'm not sure what happened next.

It's from between 1960 and 1990.

This question came from our site for science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts.

It actually sounds a lot like one of Roger Corman's Poe adaptations to me - I'm almost certain it's not though (I'm not totally familiar with them) but the overall style seems to have quite a similarity. – mh01 Mar 16 '13 at 2:09
At first I thought it was Lost Boys, but then the cutting up came and, nope. – Canadian Girl Scout Mar 16 '13 at 20:08
Sounds like maybe something from Herschel Gordon Lewis. Or maybe Warhol's Dracula? Been a long time since I've seen any of those, though, so maybe they're not even close. – user4374 Mar 17 '13 at 4:56
1960-1990 is a pretty wide swath of cinema history. do you have any other details to cut this down? how did you see this movie? when? was it american? – DForck42 Mar 18 '13 at 3:43
DForck42: I think its american, it seemed like it was typical american movie for that time epoke. The young boy and the girl seemed like they were in love and it seemed like they were on visit in the mansion/castle. There is also the blood used is more realistic. Dark, not light. They didn't wore modern clothing, i belive the story takes place in earlier ages: Before girls started wearing pants etc. – Ingeborg Mar 21 '13 at 0:40

This puts me in mind of one of the vignettes from Vault of Horror from the Hammer/Amicus stable, 1973.

The first short story has the following plot: (from the wiki page)

Harold Rodgers (Daniel Massey) tracks his sister Donna (Anna Massey) to a strange village and kills her to claim her inheritance. After settling down for a post-murder meal at the local restaurant, he discovers the town is home to a nest of vampires: Donna is not as dead as he thinks, and he becomes the dish of the night when his jugular vein is tapped out as a beverage dispenser

I distinctly remember a bald man in the story, plus a curtain being drawn back to reveal the blood-letting.

Note: The film is actually in color, not black and white as this photo suggests.

Could this be the film you are thinking of?
