Featuring Britt Nichols, Anne Libert, Alberto Dalbes
Country: France / Portugal

A woman learns that she is a descendant of the Karnsteins. She opens up a crypt and unleashes Dracula, who begins terrorizing the area. She turns into a vampire as well, and engages in lesbian sex. Police investigate.

Well, it’s a damn sight better than yesterday’s movie, I’ll give it that much. Still, it looks like your typical Jesus Franco movie to me. The two most interesting things I found about this one is that it comes up with an alternative way to dispatch of vampires, and Franco has a more prominent acting role in this one than is his wont. Other than that, I found little to hold my interest here, and the fact that the English subtitles were so dinky on my print just made it a bit annoying. I’m beginning to suspect that I’ll never understand why Franco advocates find his work so brilliant, and that may well be my loss.
