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.

31 Days of Dracula: 08 Rehan

31 Days of Dracula: 08 Rehan

1967 also gave us this gem that I have yet to see, Dracula in Pakistan. This film was the first to be given a X Rating in Pakistan. The censors cut out all dance scenes because they were too provocative. Has anyone out there seen this one?

In 1967 Rankin/Bass created the fun stop motion film Mad Monster Party. Boris Karloff lent his voice talent to the Baron Boris von Frankenstein and Alan Swift provided the voice of the Count. This holiday favorite was created by the same studio that gave us Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
