The storyline follows Dracula's disturbance by a Chinese vampires servitor who has travelled to his keep to inform him of the misfortunes of his seven Golden vampires. Dracula isnt played by Christopher Lee, the make up is a bit of a disappointment and he appears, no doubt unintentionally like a stage magician. Anyhow, Dracula is pissed off and kills the servitor, takes on his appearence and high tails it to China. Unbeknownst to Drac is that Van Helsing, thankfully played by Peter Cushing, is on tour in China and while receiving a negative reception initially is called upon to lead a band of vampire hunters.
From this point its pretty much a Chop Suey Kung Fu flick, Van Helsing's band first battles a gang of criminals, the armies of zombis which are resurrected from a graveyard with a gong, then the golden vampires themselves and finally Van Helsing has a final battle with Dracula rounding up the picture.
There's a lot of elements in this movie which where becoming Hammer Cliches at this point, bodices being ripped and women running squealing topless around the place and obviously plastic bats on strings. The edition which I saw first was a lot more gory than this one, including scenes in which lots of people had their throats cut and it all drained from autopsy tables into a great big cauldrin, some of this has been toned down or cut and I thought some of the fight sequences where shortened too. Its a shame, even if the original amount of garish red paint blood gore was seriously OTT, but it doesnt spoil the movie.
There are some odd elements in the picture, such as Van Helsing's explaining how Buddhist icons will mess up vampires as well as crucifixes or these big daft golden bat disco talismans which the vampires wear. That said the vampires and some of the zombis do resemble something more like those in MR VAMPIRE SAGA 4 Legendary Collection DVD (All Region) (NTSC) but I dont know if that's research shinning through or merely a coincidence.
The actual kung fu battles are much like those featured in Monkey! - The Complete Series [DVD] or similar TV and cinema at the time. It is great if you are interested in that kind of thing, the film is a cult gem, discussed as either one of the worst examples of Hammer's dying breaths and attempts to coin in some how on a passing craze or something which prefigured the martial arts vamp slayers like Buffy or Blade.
