Storyline

The 1800s: scholarly Karl Schiller believes he's found the ring of the Nibelungen, which holds great power. It's at Castle Dracula. His twin, Franz, a gambler, asks if vampires frighten Karl; Karl shows him an Egyptian amulet, which may protect him. Franz takes the amulet and sets out ahead of his brother, arriving at the castle first. There he finds a countess who invites him to dine. Later that night, Karl arrives. Coincidently, it's the Night of the Virgin Moon, a night that falls every fifty years and draws five virgins from the surrounding village to the castle not be heard from again. Can Karl protect his brother, find the ring, and rescue any of the women? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I am, in my own fashion, also a lady of the night.
13 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has as much life as the Countess's zombie housekeeper. Even Rosalba Neri's hot body couldn't get things exciting. But. then the housekeeper (Rosalba Neri) bathes the Countess in hot blood, and it gets a little steamier.

But, the real deal in this Italian classic is Dracula's ring. With it, the Countess summons young maidens from the village to fulfill her needs. She is a real hero to me in that she doesn't seek power or glory or riches, just young maidens to frolic with before she drinks and bathes in their blood. Bwa ha ha ha. And it's not just a single serving for the Countess, she orders in a five-pack, then does the funky chicken, and, voilà, 10 perfect breasts, extra spicy Italian-style. Yum.

Now, she must just avoid the evil Herr Schiller (Mark Damon), who wants to take her hand for his own purposes.

They don't make them like this anymore.
