Castle of decapitations.
1 January 2011 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The action of "The Bloodsukcer Leads the Dance" takes place in 1902.A group of theatre actresses is invited by wealthy Count Richard Mamack to his castle.He is especially attracted to Evelyn because she reminds him of his dead wife.There is the curse of in the Marnack family that involves decapitations of females.Alfredo Rizzo's "The Bloodsucker Leads the Dance" is a dreary and unremarkable Italian Gothic horror with plenty of sleaze.It has few sexy Italian starlets including Krista Nell,Patrizia Webley of "Malabimba" fame and Femi "Strip Nude for Your Killer" Benussi.Apart from plentiful sex and nudity there isn't much to recommend in "The Bloodsukcer Leads the Dance".7 severed heads out of 10.
