Accompanying her is her brother who hasn't seen her daughter. Dracula the arranges for some Indians to attack the stage coach and kill everybody.

When he shows up he meets the girl who introduces him to her fiancé, William Bonney aka billy the kid, who has reformed. When a European family who had earlier encountered Dracula decides to protect the girl and warns Billy of the danger. Billy then wonders if the man is her uncle. And it doesn't help that no one believes him and the ranch's former foreman is doing what he can to discredit Billy. Written by
William "One Shot" Beaudine directed this film that puts the camp in campy classic. Dracula (John Carradine) gets the hots for a beautiful blonde but her fiancé just happens to be the one and only Billy the Kid. Don't be confused by my three star rating because this is certainly one of the worst films ever made. On a technical level is horrible at every level but if you enjoy bad movies then this is one of the greatest entertainments out there. I might honestly be able to say that I laughed more during this movie than any comedy I've ever seen. Carradine's performance is so over the top that you can't help but laugh at his strange facial gestures or his nutty line deliveries. The fake bat is one of the worst ever in a vampire film and the Western stuff is equally batty.
