Editorial Reviews

The infamous midnight movie gem, ZOLTAN: HOUND OF DRACULA, is finally available on DVD. Directed by B-movie pioneer ALBERT BAND (producer of video classics TERRORVISION, TROLL, GHOST WARRIOR and ROBOT JOX), written by FRANK RAY PERILLI, (the demented imagination behind ALLIGATOR, THE DOBERMAN GANG, LASERBLAST and the notorious midget mob movie LITTLE CIGARS), and starring the regal JOSE FERRER (THE RETURN OF CAPTAIN NEMO, DUNE), ZOLTAN: HOUND OF DRACULA also features early work from special effects/make-up legend STAN WINSTON (PREDATOR, "MANIMAL" and IRON MAN). Whilst on an excavation mission, a troop of Romanian soldiers unearth the tomb of Dracula and unleash an unspeakable evil. Count Dracula's faithful manservant and his telepathic, bloodthirsty dog are suddenly resurrected and decide to track down the Count's last living descendant. It's a nightmarish, terrifying journey that involves zombie puppies and killer canines, where no man, woman, child or household pet is safe from ZOLTAN: HOUND OF DRACULA.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Ah, those Communists; it's all their fault, you know. In Zoltan, Hound of Dracula, the forces of Communism unleash a mean, lean, killing machine in the form of a huge, fanged vampire dog on the good old USA. Sure, the film makes it look like it was accidental, but I have to ask: why was the Red Army going around blowing up holes all over Romania? There can be only one explanation: they were trying to find an ancient vampire tomb so they could bring a vampire back to life and enlist him in their cause. And that comrade who sacrificed his life for the cause? Clearly a ringer. Let's say I'm guarding a newly discovered Dracula family tomb when the earth starts quaking and a coffin slides out of the mausoleum onto the floor? Do I open the coffin? Do I then, seeing a stake projecting from the innards of the shrouded corpse inside, reach right in and pull the stake out just for the heck of it? No. Nobody would do that - unless they were acting under orders (or were just born stupid). What soon emerges from the coffin is a huge black dog (code name: Zoltan) who sates hundreds of years of blood hunger on his benefactor. The vampire canine quickly frees his old buddy, one of Dracula's servants, from another coffin, and the two reunited friends scurry off into the night. The servant is only a partial vampire; the sun doesn't bother him and he has no craving for blood; all he has is a fervent need to serve a master and a really silly expression on his face whenever he supposedly concentrates.Read more ›

This film was originally entitled "Dracula's Dog." This was the title of the original theatrical release, the subsequent home video release, and the Saturday afternoon UHF television release.

But for whatever reason, someone got the bright idea of re-titling it for the DVD release. Maybe they thought it would sell better with a new title. So now it's called "Zoltan, Hound of Dracula" . . . because that's so much better. I can imagine droves of people lining up for it now . . . "I'd never go see a movie entitled 'Dracula's Dog,' but "Zoltan, Hound of Dracula' on the other hand . . .

Anyway, the movie itself is a fun little B-horror production from the 70s. It stars the late Reggie Nalder, whom horror fans will recognize as the purple skinned, candy-cane toothed Kurt Barlow from the 1979 adaptation of Stephen King's "Salem's Lot." He was also in a number of seventies B-horror films such as "The Dead Don't Die" and "Dracula Sucks."

In this film, he plays a sort of zombie who take's care of . . . you'd never get this from the original title . . . Dracula's dog. The dog's name is "Zoltan" but in Nalder's thick Germanic accent, I always heard it as "Soita." So Dracula has long since been killed, and they're out searching for a new master. They come across one of Dracula's distant descendants . . . a dog lover who owns several pets. And Zoltan goes biting each one of those little pups on the neck and turning them all into vampire dogs.

Yes, it's ridiculous. Yes, the vampire dogs all look laughable. The music is atrocious.

Who cares??? It's a fun movie.

This is a quiet favorite of mine. It was nice to see a vampire dog for a change. After all Peter Cushing/Christopher Lee/Raul Julia/Frank Langella gave us so many versions lf Dracula, it was nice to see he had a best friend who was just as diabolical. This was a good story

Zoltan is one of those movies that they just don't make anymore. Part Dracula, part Cujo and part Camp Crystal Lake all rolled into one. You know a movie is going to be awesome when you see a growling dog on the cover displaying prosthetic fangs. Although the movie isn't so much about Dracula as it is about Igor and of course Zoltan, that doesn't really matter. The basic premise is that Igor, Dracula's man-servant, is unearthed from his tomb along with Zoltan, hound from Hades. Looking for a new master, Igor tries to stalk Michael Drake who is supposedly a descendent of Dracula (Drake...Drac...tee hee, oh well). Michael has taken his family RV camping along with his two dogs and their litter of puppies. Zoltan terrorizes the campground in an effort to bite Michael and ends up biting every other dog in the process. Igor's mind control of Zoltan is hilarious and pretty basic "no Zoltan, no".....and of course no Drac movie would be complete without a Drac hunter who explains to Michael Drake why the weird occurrences have been happening with Zoltan and his pack of devil hounds. In a last ditch effort to bite Michael Drake and make him Drac, the hounds trap Michael and his vampire-hunting buddy in a small cabin. Help comes in the form of two unlikely heroes - a couple of derelict-looking fishermen - and the deed is done. But like any awesome horror movie, is the deed really done? The most excellent and laughable part of the entire thing comes at the end. This movie is full of glowing eyes, fake fangs, and noises that sound like a Satanic hedge trimmer. Zoltan captures that pure Halloween feel that was very reminiscent of great and fun horror movies of that time. If you're tired of the same old tired vampires, give Zoltan a try.
