Blood of Dracula’s Castle

boxghmv5bmtywmzk4odm1mf5bml5banbnxkftztgwmtywmtkwmze-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_From Imdb : “Count Dracula and his wife capture beautiful young women and chain them in their dungeon, to be used when they need to satisfy their thirst for blood.”

I’ve actually seen this one before on Svengoolie’s show. It actually always made me think of Happer’s “Scars of Dracula” from 1970, with a dash of Elizabeth Bathory thrown in and then set in a modern setting. It’s not the masterpiece that the Hammer Dracula fims are, but it’s  certainly cut from the same cloth, but executed with a bit less skill and money – and unfortunately it shows.  It’s a genuinely fun film for the halloween season, but I’m not sure that there’s much more to it than that. Box sets and horror host shows are the perfect homes for this particular kind of movie.
