"Dracula Blows his Cool"
19 April 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is a badly dubbed German sex comedy/Dracula spoof from the late 70's disco era featuring horrid disco numbers like one apparently titled "Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! Rock Me, Dracula" (at least those are the only lyrics). But considering all this, it is not all that bad (in the same way that for a medieval torture, the thumb-screw is not all that painful). A young photographer has inherited an old castle and decides to make money by turning it into a disco, using his dimwitted, clothing-averse female models to publicize it. Little does he suspect that his ancient ancestor Dracula (who looks just like him) is living in the basement. He and his vampire wife have been kept at bay by the local village idiot (dubbed by a Peter Lorre impersonator), who has been providing them with blood surreptitiously taken from the local hospital. But now Dracula, tempted by the readily available, nubile disco queens and driven to distraction bad disco music, is about to, as the very 70's English language title puts it, "blow his cool".

There are plenty of bad jokes involving the randy town mayor, the local spinster "Ms. Nutcracker", and a giant ceramic phallus (you don't wanna know). There is also, fortunately, A LOT of female nudity. There's one attractive fraulein named "Mickey", who, when she's not actually naked, seems to be flagrantly violating US copyright laws by wearing a Mickey Mouse t-shirt and carrying around Mickey and Minnie Mouse dolls (strangely, this very same year Jess Franco had a killer in a Mickey Mouse mask in his German-produced, disco-themed slasher flick "Bloody Moon"--for some reason the low-budget German film industry of that time seemed determined to antagonize the Disney corporation). The only really recognizable actress though is Betty Virges, who was in a lot of bad "coming-of-age" German sex comedies of this era like "The Fruit is Ripe" and "Summer Night Fever" (unfortunately however, her frequent co-star in these films, the luscious Olivia Pascal, is conspicuously absent here).

Not to say I would really recommend this to anybody, but it is intermittently entertaining. And lord knows I've seen A LOT worse stuff than this.
