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.Read more ›
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, ..Read more ›

Best vampire movie EVER! It's strange and wonderfully written; and the acting...is crazy
mesmerizing! It's a must-buy!
A very dated and some what nonsensical 70's era vampire drama. Basic plot-line: Dracula needs the blood of virgins to rejuvenate himself, and moves to a mansion in Italy owned and... Read morePublished 3 months ago by American Samurai-Soldier
Had a much stronger shock value in the 70's, in that respect it hasn't aged well... but I like the twist on the typical Dracula story.Published 5 months ago by Gerald H. Beever
