Product Description

Andy Warhol protege Paul Morrissey directs this stylised cult adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic tale. Udo Kier plays the vampire count, who needs to consume the blood of virgins to remain alive. Travelling through Italy in search of pure young women, Dracula finds four young ladies who seem to fit the bill. Observing this strange activity is the girls' servant, Mario (Joe Dallesandro), who begins to suspect that their new suitor is not all that he seems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that bloody, but funny! 28 July 2008
By haunted
Format:DVD
This film was made immediately after Flesh for Frankenstein with some of the same cast and much of the same crew.

However the films are different enough for both to be enjoyable in their own right.

The story of the Count trying to infiltrate the down at heel Italian nobility family is quite interesting.
Dracula, the last of his family, can't find any more "werrgens" (as Udo Kier memorably puts it) in Romania so his servant has the idea of going to Catholic Italy, where they must be growing on trees.

In Italy he gets himself invited to visit a poor noble family and their four unmarried daughters. The parents are delighted that the allegedly rich Count may take a shine to one of their daughters and boost the family coffers. However the Count is only after virgin blood!
Unfortunately thanks to Dallesandro's character the middle 2 daughters no longer qualify as virginal, though the Count has to find that out the hard way, leading to much vomiting and blood regurgitation.

Not surprisingly after this he is found out and the films heads towards it's OTT climax.

I preferred it to "Flesh for Frankenstein" for a few reasons. The story is better, there isn't as much "horror" and the characters are (slightly) more realistic. There aren't as many funny one liners as in Frankenstein but the behaviour of the characters is quite amusing. Director Paul Morrissey still includes some striking scenes e.g. the opening credits where the sickly Count dyes his white hair black and reddens his pale lips.

The four daughters are also interesting characters in different ways. Their parents are a bit mad, especially the father, and provide some comic relief.

5.0 out of 5 stars interesting 13 Feb 2013
By blelly
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe that I'm going to say anything original about this film, but I first saw it around 30 years ago and I flipping loved it. It's so quirky and weird but also really watchable (apart from the copious amounts of blood), that when I found this copy on dvd I had to have it, especially as my old vhs version had given up the ghost many years ago. It looks fantastic, the costume and styling is terrific and the music beautiful. The acting and action is completely mental, seeing as most of the cast can hardly speak English and it's mostly improvised, the cast do a pretty good job. The wirgins (intentional) are lovely and Udo Kier and Joe Dallesandro are very cool. Not a horror then, but a really interesting movie with a horror theme. Quality

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing the point 4 Mar 2007
Format:DVD
I don't wish to criticise Mr. G. Lee, however I'm afraid you've missed the point...The acting in this film and it's companion piece Flesh For Frankenstein, is DELIBERATELY bad and deadpan, Udo Kier, the german actor playing Dracula (and Frankenstein) is a very good and respected actor. The hammy style is how it's meant to be. The gore is deliberately over the top. These two films are classic italian horror/comedy films and thoroughly enjoyable too!!

Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camp Classic 17 Sep 2009
By ams
Format:DVD
It's a camp horror classic! One of the best! If you have a kitsch sense of humour you will love it and enjoy the hammy acting, the blue blood, the "wirgins". Udo Kier lost a lot of weight in order to play the part of the deadly sick Count and was amazing (as usual) and very funny!
