Andy Warhol's Dracula
[AllPosters.com] Buy posters from this movie
by Rob Gonsalves

"One of the two best things Warhol ever put his signature on."
5 stars

One of two Andy Warhol-sponsored horror comedies released the same year ('Flesh for Frankenstein' was the other).

The great, fearless Udo Kier is Dracula, who’s in a bit of a fix: he needs the blood of female virgins (pronounced where-gins), but there are none left in Transylvania. So he moves to Italy (plenty of virgins there, right?) with his servant (Arno Juerging) and lives with a family of nobles. Stud puppet/gardener Joe Dallesandro spoils Dracula’s plan by boinking every potential virgin in the vicinity. Whenever Dracula drinks some impure, non-virginal blood, he gags and barfs. Eventually he’s reduced to slurping his fix out of a soggy piece of bread that his servant dipped into a puddle of blood at the scene of a horse-and-buggy accident.

Pretty funny, especially Roman Polanski’s cameo, though not nearly as wild as Flesh for Frankenstein — but then again, few movies are. There’s been a lot of dispute over the years as to who actually directed these movies — Warhol associate Paul Morrissey, or Italian director Antonio Margheriti. Not a lot of people really care one way or the other these days.

Warhol himself had nothing to do with either project aside from lending his name.
