Al Adamson brings his far-out school of cult movie making to the Dracula legend in this gruesome blend of sorcery, witchcraft, and vampirism, featuring screen favorites John Carradine and Donald Barry. Prominent author John Wainwright (Larry Hankin) claims to be the reincarnation of infamous mind controller Svengali. Using black magic, he stages the ritual sacrifice of his latest Trilby (Jane Brunel-Cohen) and ignites a confrontation with the strange Dr. Gregorio (Geoffrey Land)–actually the long undead Count Dracula himself! Leaving drained corpses and female vampire slaves in his wake, Gregorio embarks on an endless, evil journey in this startling shocker!
Director Al Adamson was to die under tragic circumstances. On August 2nd, 1995, his body was found buried under the freshly laid cement and tile of his bathroom after someone had informed the police they saw someone “burying something” on the property. His murderer, Fred Fulford, posed as Adamson (for about two weeks) using Adamson’s clothes and credit cards at a hotel in Florida while on the run. Fulford was convicted soon afterwards and sentenced to 25 years to life.
