31 Days of Dracula: 11 David Niven

011_NivenOld Drac, also known as Vampira (1974) stars David Niven as the geriatric count. This one tries to follow the success of the comedy Young Frankenstein. From Wikipedia:

Count Dracula is an old vampire who, because of his advanced age, is forced to host tours of his castle to get new victims. In an attempt to revive his long-lost love, Vampira, Dracula sets out to collect blood from the bevy of Playboy Playmates living at his castle. However, one of the Playmates whose blood is drained is black, turning the revived Vampira into a black woman.

Dracula enthralls the hapless Marc to collect blood from three white women in hopes of restoring Vampira’s original skin color. Dracula transfuses the blood into her but she is unchanged; however, her bite turns Dracula black. Marc and his love Angela race to destroy Dracula but are taken aback upon seeing Dracula’s new skin tone. Their surprise gives the vampires time to slip away to catch a flight to Rio forCarnival.

31 Days of Dracula: 09 Zandor Vorkov

31 Days of Dracula: 09 Zandor Vorkov

Kicking off the 70s is 1971’s Dracula Vs. Frankenstein. This one is difficult to sit through. It sounded promising enough, a funky film pitting the two biggest monsters against each other. Dracula sounds like he recorded his audio from the bottom of a deep well. Lon Chaney (Son of Dracula) is completely wasted as an axe wielding drunken hillbilly under the Count’s spell. This one is only for the completists and die hard fans.
