Storyline

Dracula goes to the Old West and while riding on a stage learns that one of the passengers is on her way to meet her daughter at her ranch. 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. He then assumes her brother's identity and plots to make her daughter his mate. 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 rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

At the climax, Billy the Kid shoots Dracula and then, when that doesn't work, throws the gun at him. The prop apparently hit Carradine, because you can hear him yelp in a way a bulletproof vampire would probably not. See more »

"Where Can I Find This Backwoods Female Pill Slinger?"

There is a point where camp and serious meet and the line between the two can be quite difficult to trace. Luckily here, one need not worry too much about that line as nothing is to be taken too terribly serious from this film. With a title like Billy the Kid VS. Dracula, a starring credit for Z actor John Carradine, and the directorial reigns in the hands of William One-shot Beaudine - did anyone really expect anything else? I echo all the comments of how badly this film was made. Its production values are breathtakingly bad. As viewers noted: a red light is focused on Carradine's face for the "scary" moments, bats are flying courtesy of obvious, visible wires, editing concerns change story continuity repeatedly(guess it all wasn't done in one shot), the actors seem to have been propped up in many instances giving some of the most wooden performances I have ever seen, and then there is the storyline and its inane dialog - tattooing every Western cliché and then even adding a few you wouldn't expect nor should expect. John Carradine, whenever he is given an opportunity to be the star in a film vehicle, typically turns in a most hammy performance, and this film is no different. He is coiffed to look like some devil leering throughout the picture at his 18 year old "niece." He at least has some talent as he barks out orders and acts more like a raving madmen obsessed with the virginal qualities of his future mate rather than being a sophisticated vampire. The guy playing Billy the Kid is just plain awful. His acting range never moves because it doesn't exist. Chuck Courtney, aka Billy, stares his way through the role when he is not fake fighting. He acts like a choir boy most of the film. This was the infamous gunslinger Billy the Kid? As for the rest of the cast, don't expect much more than some good, unintentional laughs as they wade through the muck that is the script. My favorites have to be Virginia Christine as Eva Oster - a German who is inexplicably traveling in America with her husband and daughter spouting fear for vampires, and Olive Carey as Dr. Henrietta Hull - or as Carradine so succinctly says, "the backwoods female pill slinger." Dialog like that is a joy to behold. I loved watching this film. It definitely is one of those-so-bad-its-good movies to watch. Every scene will show something whether it is incompetence behind the camera or in front. This movie has Dracula, Billy the Kid, John Carradine, a vampire test, Dracula cruising about by day, and so much more fun that you really need to see it to believe it.
