The Killer Barbies (Silvia, Billy, Muerte, Jeyper-man, and guest Bela Blasko) are playing at Tivoli World, a Wild West park in Spain. Komrade Irina [Lina Romay] and Komrade Ivan Ivanovich [Viktor Seastrom] arrive from Transylvania, bringing with them the "dead" Count Dracula [Kike Sarasola] to be placed on display. After hearing the Killer Barbies, however, Dracula awakens, falls in love with Silvia (who looks like Charo on a bad hair day), and decides to make her his own. Realizing that they have a vampire on their hands, park owners Pepe Morgan and Martin Fierro call in the world famous, blind vampire hunter, Dr Seward [Dan van Husen].

Jess Franco's follow up to his 1996 film Killer Barbys features the rock group accidentally bringing Count Dracula back to life. The first film was decent, comic book style fun but this one here doesn't quite reach that level.

There's some funny dialogue including one scene where a reporter asks Dracula if he's ever infected Aids and another where one woman, before dying, asks Dracula why he's a mean bastard and he replies that he had a bad childhood.
