The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.
In London in the 1970s, Scotland Yard police investigators think they have uncovered a case of vampirism. They call in an expert vampire researcher named Van Helsing (a descendant of the great vampire-hunter himself, no less) to help them put a stop to these hideous crimes. It becomes apparent that the culprit is Count Dracula himself, disguised as a reclusive property developer, but secretly plotting to unleash a fatal virus upon the world. Written by

I've had this one on my mind ever since a friend of mine mentioned it a few days ago. I didn't have anything better to do tonight, so I figured that I might as well pop this one in for my evening's entertainment. Well first off, it's not hard to tell that this was made in the 70's. The music and the styles of hair and clothing certainly give it away, but I think that gives it a charm of sorts. Cushing and Lee were great as always, although Lee was was very underused this time around. I don't think he got to say a single thing until over an hour into the film! Oh well, Cushing's performance made up for Lee's absence, I guess. Christopher Lee did have a great entrance, if nothing else...the smoke billowing around him and the lighting from behind made for a great effect. Though many complain about it, I thought this was a very unique and interesting take on the classic Dracula story. Though I'm not usually a fan of satanic conspiracy films, I throughly enjoyed this, and I recommend it despite it's dated feel.
