Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Morrisey long showed that his films, although more implicit in sex, drugs and characterizations, were really Hollywood films at the core."

"Stylishly directed, atmospheric, funny, and intense enough to please gorehounds--especially at the climax."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide

"One of the two schlocky horror comedies Paul Morrissey made in Italy in 1974... Blood for Dracula is the sexier and funnier."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Outrageous, hilarious and shocking, this is trash art at its very best."
‑ Ben Cobb, Film4
"Pretty funny, especially Roman Polanski's cameo, though not nearly as wild as Flesh for Frankenstein -- but then again, few movies are."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Often startlingly beautiful to look at."

‑ Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
"One of the worst and least faithful Dracula intepretations ever made."
‑ Christopher Null,
