Decent Teen Monster Movie, 9 August 2009
Author: Tom Jeffrey from United States

I agree with some of the other reviewers about the title of this film. If you're going to make a "Dracula" movie without the character of Dracula and with a teenager (or young adult) in the title role, then why not just call it "I Was a Teenage Dracula"? Particularly if the writer is the same man who co-wrote "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" and "I Was a Teenage Frankenstein" and the director was also at the helm of "Teenage Frankenstein."

The plot is quite similar to that of "Teenage Werewolf." Troubled teen is transformed into monster by mad doctor using hypnosis. I first saw this movie the year it was released. I thought it was very scary and the vampire make-up was pretty cool. After seeing it again years later on television from the perspective of a middle-aged man rather than a ten-year-old boy, it seemed less scary than before but I still thought Sandra Harrison looked pretty cool as the vampire. If you enjoyed American International's other teenage monsters, then check this one out if you can find it.
