Dracula would disown this one, 13 June 2015
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

One thing I will say about Blood Of Dracula. It revives the tradition that was reserved for B westerns in that the title has nothing to do with the famous Transylvanian Vampire Count. Other than to say that the murders committed in this film are said to be Dracula like, Dracula has nothing to do with the film. I guess American International Pictures thought that the count's name would bring in some box office.

Well if you're expecting Bela Lugosi or Christopher Lee pass this right on by. This concerns some chilling murders that occur in and around Mary Adams's school for girls. In this case we have a woman mad scientist in Louise Lewis and she's conducting experiments involving an impressionable young teen played by Sandra Harrison. A little hypnosis and Harrison reverts to the primitive which includes turning into a girl werewolf replete with fangs and sucking the blood dry out of those she kills. It's all a puzzle to the homicide cop Malcolm Atterbury.

In the worst of science fiction films the scientist is always saying that this is all for the benefit of humankind. Even female scientists are saying that. How turning a young teen girl into a primitive homicidal maniac is beyond me.

This film is one camp hoot with cheap cinematography, no production values and players delivering their lines in anticipation of their checks clearing. Let's hope they got paid for this drivel.
