Silly vampire cash in
25 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

BLOOD OF Dracula is one of the schlocky high school monster flicks churned out by producer Herman Cohen in the late 1950s. The best known of these is I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF but BLOOD OF Dracula is a deservedly forgotten film purely because it isn't very good. There's no Dracula present in the story, just a high school reject who becomes a vampire after trying on a mysterious amulet.

This is very much a bare bones production and it feels rather silly when watched today. The characters are a bunch of clichés with barely one-dimensional personalities, ranging from jocks to popular girls and some down-at-heel cops. The most interesting of the bunch is Miss Branding, the science teacher who's the catalyst for all the chaos, but in comparison Sandra Harrison's lead is rather dull.

The vampire attacks are tame and the film as a whole feels like a rushed cash-in. The vampire make-up is particularly poor and looks like some novelty Halloween costume. The low, low budget precludes the use of any kind of special effects and the ending is abrupt and hastily written. I struggled with this one, despite being a fan of the genre.
