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

Did You Know?


This film, and its companion piece, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter (1966), were the final films for William Beaudine. This marked the end of a career that included approximately 250 (known) films beginning in the silent period. See more »


At many points in the film, "Mrs. Oster" (Virginia Christine) is called "Mrs. Olson", the character she made famous in the Folger Coffee Commercials - hardly enough reason for director "One-Shot" Beaudine to stop the cameras. See more »


William 'Billy the Kid' Bonney: I'm awful sorry to hear about your daughter. How did it happen?
Eva Oster: My Lisa is dead. The marks of a vampire are on her throat.

A genuine classic
16 March 2000 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite bad movies. Rubber bats, Western backdrops, and John Carradine as Dracula. Someone shines a red light on Carradine's mugging face during the scary scenes. It's hypnotically awful, but I'd only recommend it to those with a love for real trash. It seems to be pretty unique, but I haven't seen the companion piece, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter.
