Meet the Draculas
18 January 2011 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

Director Léon Klimovsky is probably best known for his collaborations with the Spanish Horror/Exploitation/Cult icon Paul Naschy, most notably for what is maybe also Naschy's most famous film, "La Noche De Walpurgis" (aka. "The Werewolf vs. the Vampire Woman", 1971), which is the most widely known of fourteen films in which Naschy played the Werewolf Waldemar Daninsky. Klimovsky made quite a bunch of slightly bizarre Gothic Horror films, which are not all the same quality. Even though Naschy is not involved in this film, "La Saga De Los Drácula" aka. "The Saga of the Draculas" aka. "The Dracula Saga" of 1973 is certainly one of Klimovsky's better films. "La Saga De Los Drácula" is a very different approach to the common Dracula topic which is interesting, to say the least. This time, it is not merely the famous Count, but an entire family of noble blood-suckers that cause fear in the Transylvanian mountains.

The pregnant young Berta (Tina Sáinz) and her husband are moving to Transsylvania to be with Tina's family, the patriarch of which is her grandfather - Count Dracula (Narciso Ibáñez Menta). The elderly Count lives with his three gorgeous brides (Helga Liné, Betsabé Ruiz and Maria Kosty) as well as some other relatives. Needless to say that the Dracula family's favorite beverage isn't raspberry juice, which the innocent Berta and her husband are entirely unaware of...

"La Saga De Los Drácula" is an overall very interesting and highly atmospheric film that bears more surprises and unexpected elements than one might think. Spanish Gothic Horror films such as Klimovsky's usually have a very particular inimitable charm to them, and "La Saga De Los Drácula" a good example for that. Even though the budget obviously wasn't gigantic, the atmosphere is eerily beautiful, and the plot is quite original. The female cast members are entirely gorgeous, especially the red-headed Helga Liné, who is known for her (often sexy) roles in other European Gothic Horror productions including "Nightmare Castle", "Horror Rises From the Tomb", "Las Garras De Lorelei", "Mio Caro Assassino" and others. As it is to be expected, the film includes its share of nudity, sleaze and gore. Narciso Ibáñez Menta is a very unusual (since very old, and comparably un-villainous) Count Dracula, which isn't a bad thing; on the contrary, this different version of the most famous of Vampires contributes to the film's originality. The cinematography is elegant as in all Klimovsky films, and the music by Johann Sebastian Bach fits the film amazingly well, especially the harpsichord parts.

Overall, "La Saga De Los Drácula" is a highly original Vamprie film that does more than to simply deliver what is expected, and highly recommendable to my fellow Eurohorror buffs.
