4.0 out of 5 stars well presented obscure slice of euro-horror. 21 Mar 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Deimos/BCI/victory films have been releasing a ton of spanish horror from sixties and seventies lately, mainly Paul naschy flicks which means half of euro horror fans reading this already bought most of them, while the other half think people like me are total idiots with far to much cash. Mixed in with these releases have been a coulple of amando del orissio films (lorely's grasp and night of the sorcerers) and thisleon klimovsky's Dracula saga a weird but entertaining tale of draculas granddaugter (oblivious for some reason grandpappy is a vampire) married to a foppish cad and 3 months pregnant. While staying at casa del dracula hubby gets seduced by dracula's brides while dracs granddaughter begins to suss the family heritage! (she's a bit slow!)
This is one of those sex-fuelled weird eurohorror entry's that ends up being a guilty pleasure, modern horror fans might hate it but if you like sultry vamp girls, cheap gore effects and bizzarre dream sequences with a cheap-as-hell looking bat mask then this is for you.
Like all the other releases this looks insanely classy in it's black slip case and once the disc is on looks and sounds amazing. Plus has dual spanish and english audio with optional subtitles and is uncut in full screen (unmatted) so presented with no loss of picture round edges. Like other releases not stuffed with extras but has some trailers and alternate footage including clothed footage used for spanish theatrical release (WHY!).
Definately euro-horror fanatics only, I loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Leon Klimovsky's Masterpiece! 19 Nov 2008
By PRESTOENDO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
After I saw Klimovsky's excellent Werewolf vs. the Vampire Woman, I knew I had to check out some of his other movies. When I saw the trailer for this on YouTube, I knew I would dig it (Don't watch the whole thing, it gives too much away!). It's creepy and cheesy (in a good way) and so cool. Gore, nudity, and weirdness abounds, but it has a classy look to it...and the harpsichord music is a perfect fit. Move over Lugosi and Lee, Narciso Ibáñez Menta is the best Vlad Tepes ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dracula Saga 24 Mar 2008
By The Blood of Roses - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am a film junkie! And I can say that if you love quirky, rather esoteric fims, this one is a pure gem. I'm not big on the average fair of spanish horror films; however, Victory's The Dracula Saga stands out as the premiere example of excellence in Spanish horror. I rate this film up there with Vampyres and Alucarda, and Spider Baby, reminiscent of Polanski's The Fearless Vampire Killers, it is that great: great character development, great atmosphere and mood, great story development with a black humor tinge. I would recommend this film to anyone who is into 'not the usual' and is looking for something worth watching over and over again. The dvd quality is excellent, despite some visible artifacts like the netting used to soften scenes at certain points; color is vivid, picture is clear, and sound is nicely ranged. This is a collector's prize!

I edited this review (12/03/2011) to expunge a rather uneducated and truly untenable opinion of the films of Paul Naschy. Since I first posted this review, I have been seriously viewing his films, and have acquired a completely different opinion of him as an actor and screenwriter. The Dracula Saga is not the kind of film to be compared to Naschy's films; his films seem to be an entirely different style and orientation. That said, along with The Dracula Saga, which stands alone in its own right as incomparable, I have collected most of Naschy's films that I could acquire. He was in his own right a true master of not just Spanish cinema, but world cinema, and I prize my collection of his films on dvd. I can't wait for his last film to come to dvd in the States, Empusa! To those whom the previous version of this review offended, I do sincerely apologize. I have become a true Naschy convert!

I am still waiting for Blood and Roses to come out on dvd, though - this movie is the absolute best of the best, another in a class of its own!

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring. If only Naschy had been involved 22 Nov 2009
By e1x56u$*w# - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As soon as I saw the name Leon Klimovsky I knew I wanted to see this movie. The film "Werewolf Shadow" that he directed is one of my faves, and even though I knew Paul Naschy wasn't involved in this one, I hoped that some of his genius might have rubbed off. Plus I've been very impressed with all of the Spanish horror movies I have seen so far, so I was hoping for the best with this one too.

But unfortunately this film was just not up to the standards of Naschy or de Ossorio.

The problem this time out is that the script is just not that interesting. While watching this I found myself literally falling asleep and had to turn it off and watch the rest another day.

Yes, Narciso Ibáñez Menta does make for a distinguished looking Dracula, and in other hands I think he could have gone down in history as one of the great ones. But unfortunately his character just doesn't get to do very much in this movie.

The story has ol' Drac longing for a male heir because the family line is dying out (wait a sec, I thought vamps were supposed to be undead and immortal?). But his only male offspring is a twisted one-eyed deformity, so now he is placing all his hopes for the family's future on his pregnant granddaughter who is coming for a visit with her husband. (But it is never explained why she is not a vampire, and why she doesn't seem to know that the rest of the family are vampires.) Oh, and somehow these vampires can go out in daylight for short periods of time too -- or is that just more low-budget cost-cutting day-for-night filming in broad daylight? Yeah this plot doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense and is full of unanswered questions.

When the film finally drags to a close, the ending is actually not that bad if you like black humour, but it just feels like getting there has been a pretty tedious chore.

The DVD looks great and seems to be part of the same Spanish horror series that has been issuing very nice versions of the Naschy back catalogue. But this is one of the lesser entries in the annals of Spanish horror. Overall I would only recommend this movie to really die-hard hard-core fans of 70s Eurohorror. Everyone else can safely pass this one by without missing anything.
