The Worst Dracula's Movie Produced by Hammer
24 August 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1804, in Transylvania, a Chinese walker heads to the castle of Dracula. He awakes Dracula from his tomb and explains that he is Kah, the High Priest of the Seven Golden Vampires in China that are powerless. He needs Dracula to restore their power and the vampire takes Kah's body and image.

One hundred years later, Professor Laurence Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) gives a lecture at a Chinese university about the legend of the Seven golden vampires but the students leave the auditorium finding that the all the exposition is superstition. However the student Hsi Ching (David Chiang) meets Van Helsing at home and tells that the legend is true and he knows the location of the vampires. Van Helsing accepts to travel to the village in the countryside to help to destroy the vampires and the wealthy widow Mrs. Vanessa Buren (Julie Ege), who has befriend his son Leyland Van Helsing (Robin Stewart), offers to sponsor the expedition provided she may go with them. Soon they embark with seven siblings skilled in kung-fu in a dangerous expedition to destroy the Golden Vampires and Dracula.

"The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires" is the worst Dracula's movie produced by Hammer, with a ridiculous story that combines vampires with martial arts. This movie is a co-production of the Shaw Studio from Hong Kong and was released with different titles. The Anchor Bay DVD presents also the American edited version "The 7 Brothers Meet Dracula" that I did not see. It is also funny to see Vanessa Buren and Leyland in a hard expedition dressed like they are going to a party. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
