this is the funniest and most ridiculous dracula ever seen
Relatively speaking, it's a better film than Paul Morrissey's previous film "Flesh for Frankenstein" but ultimately "Blood for Dracula" suffers from a poor script, poor acting and poor direction. Count Dracula is weak and dying and he needs the blood of a virgin, so he travels to Italy and finds a family on the verge of bankruptcy with four daughters looking for a wealthy suitor. Surprise cameo by director Roman Polanski and Vittorio De Sica.
El excéntrico Udo Kier interpreta al Conde Drácula, quien busca desesperadamente la sangre de una virgen, con desastrosas consecuencias. Andy Warhol produjo y Paul Morrissey dirige este clásico de culto lleno de sexo, violencia y pésimas actuaciones y que llega a divertir por momentos.
After making Flesh for Frankenstein (1973), director Paul Morrissey and producer Andy Warhol, shot this very gory take on Dracula back to back with the Frankenstein film in Italy, using much of the same cast and crew, and much of the film was improvised on the spot. It has a schlocky, Euro-pudding spirit that separates it from the cheesy Hammer Dracula's that were being made around the time. In the 1920's, Count Dracula (Udo Kier) is dying and he must drink the blood of virgins in order to survive. He has his servant Anton (Arno Juerging) transport him from Transylvania to Italy after Anton suggests there might be more virgins in a Catholic country like Italy. Dracula takes up residence in a grand estate belonging to Marchese di Fiore (Vittorio De Sica), who is trying to marry off his daughters in order to get some money. His daughters are Esmeralda (Milena Vukotic), Saphiria (Dominique Darel), Rubinia (Stefania Casini) and Perla (Silvia Dionisio), 2 of them have it off with handyman Mario (Joe Dallesandro), but that doesn't stop Dracula's wicked ways. It's a very daft film, but for it's low budget values and dodgy acting, it does have a likable and compelling charm about it. There is a lot of blood and gore on display, and it's interesting that Kier's portrayal Dracula is a very ill man, which gives it depth. Plus it does have a shocking conclusion which is quite effective.
Part elegy for Europe's aristocracy, part satire of class politics, and part grindhouse horror flick, Blood for Dracula is wholly unique. Between the poor acting and Udo Kier's over-the-top Count Dracula, few scenes pass without a chuckle or complete confusion. Oddly enough, the set design is gorgeous and Claudio Gizzi provides a superb and at times haunting score. Nevertheless, the film's sex scenes frequently feature disturbing moments of rape, which can't be excused, even in hindsight. The film is all over the place, but it certainly amounts to a unique moment in late 70s film.
Iz not eazy to be ze Dracvla vho requires virgin blood to survive. Bloody sexy and mostly improvised story of the hunt for virgin blood with plenty of forbidden scenes. Vampire tale that differs slightly from Twilight, True Blood and the kin.
Campy by its offbeat of everything.
Well... my friend Aaron and I were THIS CLOSE to switching the station, but one scene later, we had some topless women and we knew what we were in for. Worth all the bad acting this film can offer for the blood and violence found at the end of the film. Also, every time Dracula throws up blood? Perfect (still a god awful movie).
I don't believe for a second that the creators intended this to be as funny as it is.
Can't stop laughing when Dracula was sick after sucking the blood of 2 virgins, who were in fact no longer virgins
