Naschy as the Amorous Dracula sets out to seduce his one great love, with the help of his trio of sexy Vampiric Mistresses. This one is chock full of Naschy Eroticism and Gore.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the cheesy fun I remembered September 24, 2006
Format:DVD
I haven't seen Elvira since I was a teenager back in the early '80s, anxiously awaiting her cleavage...er, her appearance each weekend as she poked fun at some schlocky movie. I really got a kick out of seeing her again. I forgot how cool the opening and closing sequences were for her show. I also forgot how extremely corny and cheesy some of her segments were. She's got a "Cooking with Elvira" segment on here that takes corniness to new levels.

The movie itself wasn't too bad actually. It's a Spanish film from the early '70s about four women and a man who are riding a horse-drawn carriage through the Transylvanian Alps in the summer. A wheel falls off the carriage and wouldn't you know it, the only place that they can go for help is Count Dracula's castle. Of course they don't know he's Count Dracula, they think he's a doctor. So they spend a few nights there (help is a long way off). Of course their numbers start dwindling rather quickly. Unfortunately the second half of the movie seems to lose its way; it just gets rather boring. The ending comes as a bit of a surprise though - it's the first time I've ever seen a vampire do that! Overall it has some nice Gothic atmosphere and I think just about every babe in here gets topless at one point or another. They also wear these low-cut dresses throughout the whole movie that show off plenty of cleavage.

As far as the technical aspects, it's an old, unrestored print, but it's exactly what you would expect for a 30+ year old Spanish film being shown on Elvira's Movie Macabre. It's perfectly watchable, and I was actually impressed that it looked as good as it did. It was originally widescreen, but here we get it in fullscreen. The opening credits now display the title as "unt Dracula Great Love".

While Dracula's Great Love has a few problems, I'm quite taken with this movie. This Spanish vampire film from 1972 actually gives you blood flowing from open veins, a pretty Gothic atmosphere, lovely women running around in rather revealing clothing - sometimes licking blood off of one another, gratuitous nudity, and even one good virgin-whipping. What's not to like? Admittedly, the film is a little bit on the weird side, sort of coming unraveled a little bit during the final fifteen minutes, but the ending is nothing if not unpredictable. I'm used to seeing Paul Naschy playing a werewolf, so it was nice to see him shed all that hair and try his hand at channeling Dracula; I imagine he enjoyed himself, as well, since vampires - not werewolves - get all the women. As strange as it sounds, Dracula's Great Love is actually a rather tragic love story.

That story seems to take place somewhere around Borgo Pass, near the spot where Dracula was supposedly killed by Van Helsing. We hear the whole story from a fellow who is traveling through the region, via stagecoach, with a bevy of lovely ladies wearing low-cut Victorian dresses. Just about the time they pass by the creepy sanitorium on the hill (which one must assume is Dr. Seward's old stomping grounds), they lose a wheel, a horse kills the driver, and they have no choice but to seek refuge in the sanitorium. They are greeted there by Dr. Wendell Marlow (Naschy), who seems rather charming to the ladies (except for the one scaredy-cat of the group). Marlow, as it turns out, is actually Dracula, whose evil has survived his apparent death at the hands of Van Helsing. In order to fully regain his great power, though, Dracula must win the human love of a virgin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Film, So-So DVD January 11, 2004
By ACS
Format:DVD
In this 1972 film from Spanish director Javier Aguirre, four women and a man wreck their stagecoach and must take refuge in a nearby castle. Unfortunately for the travelers, the castle's owner, Dr. Wendell Marlow (Paul Naschy), turns out to be none other than Count Dracula. After Dracula falls in love with one of the women, she must decide whether to live eternally as Dracula's bride or reject him and continue to live as a mortal. Her not-so-surprising choice leads to a strange and surprising ending. Like a lot of '70s European horror movies, the film suffers from slow pacing and a somewhat muddled plot. But there's lots of gothic atmosphere and a few creepy moments here and there to keep things interesting.
If there's anything to complain about, it's Sinema Diable's cheapo packaging. For a mid-priced DVD like this, you'd expect to see a reasonably sharp video transfer and decent audio, but both are very marginal here. In fact, the picture and sound quality are comparable to what you typically see in bargain-bin DVDs costing a third as much. There are no extras, either, like a trailer or talent bios, which are almost always included in DVDs in this price range. So I've deducted one full star for the low overall quality of the release. Hopefully, we'll see a little more bang for the buck in Sinema Diable's future products.

Of course, if you're a Naschy fan, or just can't get enough of these low-budget Euro-horror films, these faults probably won't bother you too much. Besides, until Anchor Bay or another company comes along with a better release, this may be your only chance to see this lesser-known, but worthwhile, entry in the Naschy catalog.
Two out of five stars.
