Stylishly directed, atmospheric, funny, and intense enough to please gorehounds--especially at the climax.

It's a few bites away from being a delicious spoof on Dracula.

One of the two schlocky horror comedies Paul Morrissey made in Italy in 1974... Blood for Dracula is the sexier and funnier.

Great photography, Udo Kier a pale, anemic villian, Arno Juerging his assistant, marvelously balancing ludicrous dialogue with deadpan earnestness.… More
