Can you believe this is the 4th year of 31 Days of Halloween? This year I am taking the reins with some help from Susan Harris. Things might look a little different but I guarantee one thing - Lots of "different" Halloween options!
Day 10 - Blood For Dracula (1974)
Melanie Says -
And now for something totally different. There are a lot of vampire movies out there, especially Dracula movies, but this one has a special place in my heart because it is just SO SO badly filmed and edited - that it actually makes it good. Think about the lowest budget special effects that you could find (need a person to look green - no problem - hold a green light near their face), some of the most over the top acting (if you have seen the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie - the overacting in this tops Paul Reubens death scene), and of course there's the fact that the only thing that can save you from Dracula is not being a virgin!
Add to that ridiculous accents that make no sense, some questionable choices with a skeevy gardener (I can save you - just have sex with me), and you might be asking why you should watch this.
I honestly can't tell you why other than I love it. I think Udo Kier is fabulous. I can totally see why they chose him to play Dracula, he has cheekbones to die for. Sometimes you just need a total B movie experience to escape the total ridiculousness of the world today - plus there is a cameo from Roman Polanski - so be sure to watch for that (if you decide to watch). At the moment you can check it out for free - so live on the edge - take a chance! We did tell you this year's list would offer some unusual suggestions.
