Editorial Reviews

Paul Morrissey's brash mixture of humor, horror and sex is a bitingly funny satire of modern values--and a revelation to fans of the horror film. In "Blood for Dracula," the infamous count searches Italy for "pure" blood. Criterion presents the long-suppressed director's cut of this outrageous cult classic. "Presented" by Andy Warhol.

Format: DVD
The strength of this otherwise unfortunate movie is Udo Kier's sterling portrayal of Count Dracula. Envision, if you will, Count Dracula sitting lethargically before a baroque vanity mirror, generously painting black dye over his hoary white hair with a brush large enough to swipe a gutter. This chilling, haunting, otherworldly scene sets the tone for all that follows. Faced with doom and obscurity, Dracula must leave his moribund abode and embark on a secret quest to secure the wirgin blood required to maintain his eternal existence. He must lamentably say farewell to his sister, and then board the family car with chauffeur/evil toady Anton for a lengthy road trip.

Operation: 'Wirgin Blood' has now begun.

Eventually Dracula is directed to a large estate, where an aged farmer has in his care a whole stable of absolutely hideous daughters. (It should be mentioned that this film's continuity is backwards or inverted, not unlike that of the Crime Syndicate of Amerika; e.g.: hideous daughters are super-hot; Count Dracula, Prince of Darkness, is powerless; the movie's hero is a lowlife Communist/rapist.) The father invites Dracula into his once-lavish home, and proudly confirms the fact that all of his daughters are in fact good, wholesome, corn-fed wirgins. Count Dracula begins to stalk his prey one by one...

How does the 'Udo Kier' Dracula differ from the conceptual Dracula?

(A) 'Udo' Dracula not only lacks superhuman strength and reflexes, but lacks even the vigor required to fight a frail wine-addled captive wirgin into submission.

(B) 'Udo' Dracula has no demonic powers such as augmented senses, shapeshifting or unnatural magnetism; quite in fact the wirgins are repulsed by 'Udo' Dracula and they mock him behind his back.

Different is what this movie is. I liked the movie for one, it dares to go off in directions the mainstream of film makers usually don't go. The second, I agreed with one reveiwer that you either like the film or you don't. The traditional Dracula plot is non-existent (He can only survive on the blood of virgins and for some reason there are none in his own home town). This movie is more of a parody and is fun to watch if you enjoy the unusual world of filmdom offerings. I would highly recomend this film in DVD format for the director commentaries and publicity stills included. Viewers should also be aware, this movie is not for the younger viewers, due to high explicit sexual content and nudity.

Blood for Dracula is an interesting take on the Dracula legend. Dracula is in this film, a weak, sickly, even depressed vampire. who seems to detest everything in life except for his faithful assistant. They travel to early twentieth century Italy from Romania, in search of "Wergins", so Dracula can feed. They settle in an aristrocratic mansion, where the Lord of the Manor has three sexy daughters, and a 14 year old girl as well. Also, a "fieldhand", who enjoys getting it on with the daughters. This character is misplaced in the film, and his contemporary Brooklyn accent, along with his poor acting skills dont help the film. There is also a disturbing scene where he rapes the 14 year old, in order to deny Dracula her virgin blood. Other than that, the film is a hit. It is high on erotisism, and the two better looking daughters spend much of the film naked, and all over each other or the fieldhand. The neck biting scenes are some of the finest on film, but poor Dracula, he cannot live on tainted blood! All in all, a good film, funny, bloody, and a little sad even.

One of the few truly original and distinguished films of the vampire movie genre. It's basically the story of Count Draculas quest for a virgin with whom he can revitalize himself and his relatives ( who are "asleep" in the family crypt back home ) while posing as a wealthy traveling aristocrat in search of a "suiter". It is dramatic, funny, clever, occasionally gross, and even rather sad and tragic in the end .

Though a Dracula film, this isn't the usual type of vampire flick. It's not like ohhhh, .. 'Lost Boys or 'Blade or 'Twilight( I even suspect that some of the bad "reviews" already here are from idiots who had a movie like THOSE in mind with this one ). It's actually a kind of classy film, .. . more like a funny dramatic film with a vampire as it's subject.
And, though this film does have it's humorous side, it isn't exactly a "comedy" in any conventional sense either. Put another way, this is NOT, I warn you, anything like ohhhh 'Fright Night, or 'Love At First Bite, or 'Vampire In Brooklyn with Eddy Murphy, or 'Dracula; Dead And Loving It, or 'My Dog is A Vampire, or anything else along THAT line, so get THAT out of your head. The humor in this film is actually rather subtle and more in the nature of ironic satire than "comedy" or even "camp".
To give an example of this films humor, there's this one scene ( the opening scene in fact ) in which Drac ( played by the femininely featured actor Udo Kier ) is sitting in front of a mirror and narcisistically primping himself, applying rouge to his callow cheeks, red tint to his lips, and black dye to his blond swept-back hair ( establishing an element of sexual androgyny, ..

Which DVD version is which???
I know this is a bit late but the Image Entertainment version does have commentaries by both the director and the star as well as a screen test segment.
