Count Dracula (Jamie Gillis), a vampire who's recently purchased a castle adjacent to a mental institution, as well as his vampire brides, use the patients, and daughters of Dr. Seward, to satisfy a lust for blood and sex.
Michael is released from prison for a sexual offense, having enjoyed himself carnally with a fifteen-year-old girl some five years earlier. His parole officer, Eddie, is keen to have his ward integrate into society, arranging for an apartment, lining up a job interview, and vetting some of his new neighbors to find a "nice young woman from a good family." When he moves into his new apartment, he immediately finds distraction in the form of the countless married and open-minded housewives who live along the same corridor. After some shenanigans, he, in his way, begins to start a new life professionally, arranging a big block party while launching his sex service syndicate.Written by
This was a huge success in 1971 in Holland. It was Dutch, had sex in it and was more or less rebellious. Many people saw the movie, even though not everyone admitted to have actually watched it! It was the era the Dutch got loose from their religion. They started to be more open minded. In this respect this movie should not be underestimated. It is a monumental step in Dutch history.
But now we are almost 40 years later. Seeing the movie again is an ordeal. It turns out to be a very weak film indeed. The soft core sex scenes are awful at best. The acting is terrible. The story line is ridiculous. And the movie is ssslllooowww...
Still part of the atmosphere around 1970 is captured very well. The location (the Bijlmer area in the South of Amsterdam, now slums mainly, then brand new) is well chosen. But I am afraid that is the only positive remark I can make about this disaster on celluloid.
You want to watch a comparable movie with more or less the same theme, but well acted and with a good story? Try Turks Fruit.
