Dracula, played by an uncredited Caucasian, was shipwrecked in the 1600’s in Japan, when Christianity was illegal. He was then forced to spit on the cross and wander alone in the desert. Upon finding himself bleeding, he was so thirsty he drank his own blood and acquired a taste for it, later attacking a local teenager named Keiko. In present day, Professor Shiraki (Toshio Kurosawa) arrives at a girl’s school for a teaching job, but now the principal, whose wife died in a car accident, wants Shiraki to take over for him. The principal has been keeping his wife in a cellar for a week, supposedly, according to local custom, to see if she might return to life. Immediately suspicious, Shiraki investigates and becomes entrenched in the horror of the vampires. Three girls are caught up too, as one has already been bitten and her roommates stay to care for her. Also stars Mariko Mochizuki and Kunie Tanaka. (In Japanese language, with English subtitles).
