So named presumably after those which must have been delivered after they saw the first rushes!
1 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

The plethora of reviews here are indicative of the obviously growing cult status of this movie! Methinks Mike and I are probably the only people to have ever seen this flick. I don't know about him, but I "inherited" the film (titled incidentally DRACULA'S LAST RITES) in a bulk purchase of some 1600 movies I made some 16 years ago, from a video shop that had gone to the wall! Unfortunately some four years later in a drunken and obviously disorientated state, I put it on!

Well what can I say? Hey, its a movie from Domonic Paris, a specialist in home-movies who has churned out a total of just four films between 1980 and 1997. This was his finest hour. Obviously filmed over a long weekend with a hand-held camera, script written over cornflakes, and a budget of probably $200. Basically no blood, plastic teeth from K Mart and "actors" from the local pool hall.

Best of all, no Dracula! If you want to find the home movie with the leastest, try and find a copy of this, although I suspect I have the only print left - and its in BETA!
