The early ’70s were a fecund period for films called Dracula vs Frankenstein. This one, by Jess Franco (uh oh) is more aptly summed up by it’s alternate title, Dracula Prisoner of Frankenstein. Dracula is zombiefied by Dr. Frankenstein (so the title is correct for once) early on and never break free to contest him and his Monster, as you might expect. Perhaps because both of the titular actors, Howard Vernon and a very ill looking Dennis Price were clearly not in the shape to shoot anything like that.
This is a REALLY dull film that makes Adamson’s flick look great. We’ll get more stills in the next few days, and there are pretty female vampires and even a very very tame lesbian scene but there is nothing interesting about this slog. Unless you like counting wobbly zoom shots. You better have a Rainman-level counting ability, though.
