spoof and XXX version worth checking out
7 February 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This flick came out way before the VHS rage and is still unavailable on any format. You can try to track it down on VHS but even then you will have some care to take to find an excellent copy. Why? If you just look at the names of the actors than you know enough, Jamie Gillis (Dracula), Anette Haven (Mena) and Selena (Lucy) are all well known for their performances in porn flicks and that's exactly what Dracula Sucks is.

But Dracula Sucks do had it's problems. Before going to the theaters it was released as a 108 minutes Dracula spoof. But that version never made it and it was cut down to 82 minutes. Most XXX theaters showed this version under the name Love At First Bite. It was later that it was re-edited to a version without the XXX scene's as Dracula Sucks (87 minutes). So both versions are interesting because combined you will see the whole movie as it was in his 108 minute version.

Made in a period were porn was the big thing it do had a story. It is loosely based on the story of Bram Stoker's Dracula. The opening credits of Dracula Sucks even mentioned his name. Seen both versions the Dracula Sucks story is easier to follow. LAFB jumps from one scene to another but the opening sequence says enough, we see Dracula go lickety-split. The XXX scene's are a bit tame for the time it was made. There are almost no pussies shown, just one in a lesbian scene. It's funny to see the difference in one notorious scene. Lucy is going for a pee and Dracula appears. In the DS version he just bites her breast but in the LAFB version he also bites her breast but before that he gives her his love juice all over her face. And the human juices do flow everywhere. The effects used are simply done with lighting of editing effects but the flying bat is really Ed Wood style.

Also notable is the way they made use of the lighting. It do has his creepy moments and when Dracula bites it's really like Bela Lugosi is talking. It isn't a roughie like Forced Entry or a brutal porn like Waterpower. As I said it before, for being made in the era of roughies it's rather tame but still watchable, there's a scene of necrophilia in it and an incest scene.

And just for the 70's porn lovers, Seka (Nurse Betty) has a small performance and went further to the classic Ultraflesh (1980) as Ultraflesh as did Serena as the Blond Fleshette. She also just performed as Lorelei in The Abduction of Lorelei (1977) but was credited as Jenn Gillian. Jamie Gillis died in 2010 and was seen in his last flick made Die You Zombie Bastards (2005) as Stavros. Maybe he was one of the best known porn actors even playing in a full soda-masochistic gay porn not performing but still. He also was seen in Ultraflesh as Sugarman and had a small cameo in Nighthawks (1981), yes the Stallone flick.

Overall, worth mentioning if you can track it down. To find an official release you have to search the VHS copy. Not a classic but with classic porn actors. There's acting in it but not Oscar worthy. A must have.
