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

Is this film real??
5 April 2007 | by PavlosSopSee all my reviews

This is the first question i made to myself after the end titles. Being a huge fan of Jimis and cult films i can't hide that this movie was something divine. A movie full of scenes that you can't understand if the actors really act. They just... do what they do(pay attention to the orgy scene or the sex inside the coffin). Also full of great songs, not only music, but the lyrics are fantastic. Really deep. If you have any idea of Greek reality you'll understand why i say that. Imagine that these songs were written at the year 1983. After 24 years they are more in time than ever. Prophetic... I couldn't vote less than 9 because all of the reasons above. So open your minds and see this movie.
