Legend Paul Naschy posing as a doctor who helps out some young women after their coach crashes
27 April 2013 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Paul Naschy's version of the notorious character Dracula , it turns out to be an acceptable picture compellingly directed by Javier Aguirre with a good cast plenty of Eurobabes . A stagecoach is crashed when the carriage loses a wheel while traveling over the Borgo Passa , then passengers stop at a creepy sanitarium in the mists of eastern Europe . A man (Vic Winner) along with four women (Ingrid Garbo , Mirta Miller , Rosanna Yanni , Haydee Politoff) spend the night in an old deserted and rundown mansion on a mountain of a far country , Los Carpatos , Romania . They each in turn fall into the the evil hands of a physician (Jacinto Molina) who forces them to suck each others blood and to whip innocent village virgins so they can lick the oozing cuts clean . As Dracula starts a reign of seduction and horror, draining the life from four girls .

This thrilling as well as terrifying film contains horrifying scenes , chills , lots of gore and red tomato was used for the blood . The picture contains a crazy love story , but also nudism , lots of blood and gore as when Dracula stabs enemies and bites women . It is a passable and average-budgeted version with gorgeous actresses , functional set design and brilliant costumes . It's a delirious story about ¨amour fou¨ with multiples literary references and Hammer elements ; all of them thrown in . It results to be a strong tale as well as sensitive flick with melodramatic touches in which Dracula falls in love with a gorgeous young played by Haydee Politoff . Beautiful and naked actresses along with brief appearance two actors who performed several Spaghetti/Paella Western : Alvaro De Luna and Jose Luis Martin . Good performance from Naschy as a doctor with dark secrets . The picture was shot at the same time to ¨Hunchback of Morgue¨ with same director , cameraman , musician and actors that deals with a below average intelligence hunchback who works at the morgue. Both of them shared a similar theme , as a lone being , Hunchback and Dracula, who fall in love with a virginal maid . Naschy deservedly won the prize George Melies the best performance in Fantastic Festival of Paris and other several prizes . Naschy's success started in 1967 when Paul played and wrote the script for ¨Mark of wolfman¨ . He was forced out of necessity to play the lead role of tormented werewolf Waldermar Daninsky after Lon Chaney, Jr. turned it down . He reprised this character in over a dozen subsequent sequels . Naschy's portrayals of the anguished and sympathetic werewolf Daninsky became his signature part and consolidated his enduring cult status as a bona-fide horror icon. Other significant horror figures Paul played were the Mummy, Jack the Ripper, the Hunchback, the Frankenstein Monster, the Phantom of the Opera, the Devil and even Dracula , his performance as the Prince of Darkness in this "Count Dracula's Great Love" it was one of his personal favorites.

Atmospheric cinematography by Javier Pere Cubero though would have been necessary a photography similarly to Hammer Films , glamorous gowns and regular production design , including evocative sets . Flawed but interesting screenplay by Jacinto Molina and the same director Javier Aguirre who blends diverse themes ; however , the picture contains a silly finale . Thrilling and frightening musical score by Carmelo Bernaola . Appropriate sets and production design by Cubero and Galicia who worked in many Spaghetti Western . The motion picture was professionally directed by Javier Aguirre . Rating : Good , it will appeal to mad-cults movies and Naschy fans ; it's one of the best films .
