Vampix was a British video label imprint that specialised in horror films. It was a subsidiary of distributor Videomedia.

Most Vampix releases were British and European horror films from the 1960s and early 70s. They included several Tigon films, Mario Bava’s Black Sunday and Shock, and Dario Argento’s The Bird with the Crystal Plumage.

The label also released two Lucio Fulci titles, The Beyond and The House by the Cemetery, Norman J. Warren’s Prey, Umberto Lenzi’s cannibal shocker Eaten Alive and the Canadian revenge film Death Weekend. Their version of Peter Walker’s The Flesh and Blood Show was poorly presented in 3D.

Unlike many labels in the pre-cert era, Vampix only released BBFC approved (and cut) versions of their titles. Despite this, their version of The House by the Cemetery still ended up as one of the official video nasties even though the release was identical to the version that had played UK cinemas!

Interestingly, Videomedia released Argento’s Tenebrae under the main label name, again in a cut BBFC-approved version, and this too ended up as one of the films banned as a ‘nasty’.


Like many smaller video labels, Vampix and Videomedia did not survive the transition to a post-Video Recordings Act world although a label named Stablecane re-released much of their catalogue of titles.
