Passing himself off as a distant relative, he settles in with the Mayberry family in California, where he begins seeking fresh victims. The suspicions of

A Cold War horror movie in which vampirism functions as a metaphor for Communism and the forces of anti-Christianity, with Dracula a shadow version of Jesus who performs miracles (he restores a blind girl's sight) and promises immortality...

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A satisfying low-budget schlock horror flick that has Dracula searching to rebuild his army of the undead in the New World.

Audience Reviews for The Return of Dracula (The Curse of Dracula) (The Fantastic Disappearing Man)

The synopsis on here doesn't remind me of the movie at all, I think it just isn't worded well, the movie is about Dracula taking the place of this distant uncle who's supposed to be visiting his family in America, and the daughter starts to fall in love with him, not realizing it's just his vampire powers, or that he is a vampire. It's a cool movie, I'd love to see it again, I saw it on TV.

Francis Lederer, Played Count Dracula, posing as Bellac Gordal, Though the Name Dracula was never mentioned in the movie. But its an outstanding Black & White movie, and I am sure back in the day it frighten a few people. If you enjoy Black & White Films I would add this one to the collection.
