good nostalgic 50,s B movie
4 July 2001 | by phlflipSee all my reviews

Blood of Dracula was one of my most memorable horror movies mostly because it centers on a female monster for a change.Louise Lewis is great as the mad teacher who tries to prove her theory.The makeup on the monster is a riot.It is the usual teenage horror movie with a few songs thrown in for fun.This film is typical 1950,s.Check out the ending when student-monster finally turns against teacher.It is one of the funniest,most entertaining scenes in the movie.
