Did You Know?


A Vinegar Syndrome dual-format release containing Blu-ray and DVD discs included an insert booklet with liner notes by longtime Naschy enthusiast Mirek Lipenski of Latarnia, who offers an impressive amount of detail about the film including a tantalizing mention of some perverse footage (up to 15 mins) removed from the final cuts.

User Reviews

Worthwhile but rarely seen Naschy film
24 January 2004 | by aschepler2See all my reviews

DRACULA'S GREAT LOVE (1972) ** ½ Paul Naschy, Haydée Politoff, Rosanna Yanni, Ingrid Garbo. Four women and a man wreck their stagecoach and must take refuge in a nearby castle. Unfortunately for the travelers, the castle's owner, Dr. Wendell Marlow (Paul Naschy), turns out to be none other than Count Dracula. After Dracula falls in love with one of the women, she must decide whether to live eternally as Dracula's bride or reject him and continue to live as a mortal. Her not-so-surprising choice leads to a strange and surprising ending. Like a lot of '70s European horror movies, the film suffers from slow pacing and a somewhat muddled plot. But there's lots of gothic atmosphere and a few creepy moments here and there to keep things interesting. Worth a look.
