Count Dracula - alias Count Charles Townsend: We're dramatically referred to as "The Living Dead".
Ann - Motorist Victim: Living Dead? Vampires? It must be some sort of joke. Please tell me it's a joke.
Countess Townsend: Unfortunately, my dear, it's true. We come alive at sunset and must drink the blood of a human before we can retire at sunrise.

D'ARCY and RAYMOND, CARRADINE looking like death
29 August 2002 | by silentgmusicSee all my reviews

Anyone looking for a fittingly horrendous Al Adamson film, look no further. While this film is not the usual paste-up job that Adamson specialized in, BLOOD OF DRACULA'S CASTLE is pure bad cinema, which is Adamson's true field.

D'Arcy and Raymond play Mr. and Mrs. Dracula, looking stiff and embarrassed (who can blame them?) The Draculas feed on the blood of the young women they have chained in their dungeon (including Adamson regular Vicki Volante). Carradine plays the Dracula's butler, a wasted opportunity for this horror screen legend to do his Dracula bit (get the pun?) A psycho shows up at the castle, and a stupid couple stay there.

BLOOD is boring, with only a few laughs produced from the bad acting and flimsy-looking props. Adamson made more hilarious films than this (like DRACULA VS FRANKENSTEIN), and it was unintentional (of course). Adamson, however, deserves the credit to having gotten anything on film for the tight budgets he was given.

Still, BLOOD is bad, and more mediocre than entertaining.
