Storyline

Freshly arrived from the mystical forests of the ancient Carpathian Mountains, the deranged scientist and Count Dracula's direct descendant, Dr Victor Papadopoulos, has settled in his new castle, somewhere in the thick shadows of Exarchia. Burning with artistic desire and deeply devoted to his paranoid cause, the delusional doctor roams the city's empty night streets in search of human limbs that once belonged to famous musicians, with the intention of putting together the perfect rock band. However, the cemetery's restless inhabitants who are at the end of their tether, decide to form an alliance to fight back the rapacious gravedigger and put an end to this blasphemy once and for all. But who can stand in Dracula's way? Written by Nick Riganas

A true cult classic
15 September 2005 | by dmtlsSee all my reviews

Wow! is the only thing I can say about it.There is some kind of plot in the film but surely not in the conventional way.Things just happen, often out of blue and you find yourself just standing and looking unable to really get a grip on what's happening or how could anyone think of something like that to put in his movie.Hilarious satire of political and social life in Greece of the early 80s (some things have not changed drastically even now). Grotesque and surrealistic images and great music (stick to the lyrics) from Tzimis Panousis and the Music Brigades.A true cult classic for anyone who has an idea of Greek everyday reality!
