This movie opens with a woman (Vicki Volante, a Joan Baez lookalike) driving along listening to her car radio. The song, &quot;The Next Train Out&quot; is so catchy I went around singing it for days after I had first seen this movie. Amazingly John Carradine does not play Count Dracula, even though he had recently done the role in &quot;One Shot&quot; Beaudine&#39;s BILLY THE KID VS. Dracula in 1966; he is George the family butler. Dracula is played by Egyptian actor Alex D&#39;Arcy whom you can also see in HORRORS OF SPIDER ISLAND and FANNY HILL. Countess Dracula is Paula Raymond who costarred in BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS and the newly rediscovered HAND OF DEATH. It seems everyone has relationship problems eventually and after 400+ years Dracula has been reduced to the henpecked husband of a domineering wife! (Hmmmm, maybe that is why John did not want to play The Count this time.)<br/><br/>Hiding behind the names Count and Countess Townsend the vampires live in a castle in the Arizona desert. Victims (all of them female of course) are brought to them by their cretinous henchman Mango (just where do movie villains go to finds all these hunchbacked lumbering brutes that scary movies seem to abound in?) and drained of their blood by George. They drink blood from martini glasses and wonder if they will ever be accepted in polite society. The Draculas have also got religion in this film. Thanks to George they are devoted worshipers of the Great God Luna and occasionally burn a victim alive at the stake as a sacrifice to him(her? it?).<br/><br/>When the new owner of the castle (Gene O&#39;Shane) turns up with his fiancée (Barbara Bishop) the Unholy Three (I&#39;m not counting Mango among the conspirators) try to get him to sell the castle. When he refuses all Heck breaks loose . . . well, as much as director Al Adamson&#39;s budget will allow!<br/><br/>Watch for Robert Dix, son of silent film leading man Richard Dix, playing family friend Johnny. He is usually a likable guy but when the moon turns full he becomes a psycho killer. TV prints splice in a quick shot of some guy wearing a Don Post werewolf mask in an attempt to make the plot more interesting but theatrical prints do not have this embelishment. Robert also appears in FORBIDDEN PLANET and FRANKENSTEIN&#39;S DAUGHTER.<br/><br/>63 year old John Carradine looks younger than his years with his hair dyed black once again. He even does his own stunts for his death scene. Speaking of death scenes, Mango (Ray Young) goes through enough to kill 10 men; shot, hit with an axe and set on fire he just keeps coming back! Whew!<br/><br/>Is this film a classic? Gosh no! But it IS a lot of fun! Just seeing Long John stomping around a dusty old castle like it was still the 1940&#39;s at Universal makes it worthwhile. Besides, you just might find yourself singing along with &quot;The Next Train Out&quot; after more than one viewing.

My overblown rating for this is due to nostalgia value: this is one of the first horror movies I can ever remember seeing and is close to my heart in a way that is more fitting for a record album than a movie. I&#39;ve gotten to know every cadence and beat, line of dialog, musical cue and gesture. This film has been a part of my life, thanks in part by how clever local TV programming directors back in the 1970s would often produce their own weekly Creature Feature Monster Movie Matinée horror movie block.<br/><br/>For some reason this one got around a bit more than others, I was familiar with it from a very young age and we&#39;d get it two or three times a year, right along with &quot;The Black Cat&quot; (1934), &quot;Conqueror Worm&quot; (1968), &quot;Count Dracula&quot; (1970). This one was the vampire movies with the big hunchback, and my greatest intrigue as a kid was to wonder just what was inside of Mango&#39;s little house underneath the paper mache stairs. I still wonder about it sometimes.<br/><br/>The film is a classic study of American kitsch, so delightfully out of step with the Haight-Ashbury influenced psychedelia years during which it was produced (1967) and ultimately released (1969) to what must have been baffled audiences. Al Adamson movies are always a matter of acquired taste but I know people who remember seeing this film whenever describing the scene where the guy pushes the car over the cliff and walks away munching on a sandwich.<br/><br/>Its somewhat ineptly made but all of it endearing, right down to the confusing issue of whether Robert Dix&#39;s Johnny is a werewolf or not. He is in the expanded television print* and I remember seeing it once or twice, though as far as I am concerned its even more fun with him just being a maniac who gets riled up during the full moon.<br/><br/>And this is John Carradine as I will always remember him, George the Butler, a practicing Satanist (or whatever he practices) who brings his employers chilled Bloody Mary&#39;s with real blood promptly at 4:30, and never forgets the need to reward Mango for bringing them fresh girls. The rewarding Mango scene is the highlight of the movie for me. You can&#39;t help but wonder what he&#39;d do to a girl if he got one, and it ain&#39;t pretty.<br/><br/>The movie deserves a better reputation than its gotten. It&#39;s not THAT bad, and there&#39;s some actual talent involved with the production in the form of cinematographer Lazlo Kovaks and &quot;Star Trek&quot; contributor Jerome Wexler amongst the production staff. They even shot some of the outdoor sequences by the same rock where Captain Kirk fought the Gorn. Golly!<br/><br/>One curious thing that always impressed me about the movie is how it makes this little community of monsters living in the desert just south of Malibu seem so normal and contented. Sure, Mango is a big shuffling grunting cannibalistic muto, but by golly he has a place here in this household and people who care about him. By contrast, the young couple who inherit the castle come across as shrill, shallow, narcissistic idiots who wish to heartlessly break up the happy nucleus. It appears that what Mr. Adamson was saying is that the monsters are us.<br/><br/>9/10

Dracula isn&#39;t going by &quot;Dracula&quot; these days, and his castle isn&#39;t really his, it&#39;s rented, and it isn&#39;t really a castle, but just resembles one. And while there is blood, remarkably Dracula is now so leisure-class that he has servants extract blood with needles from his victims and serve it to him (and his wife) in wine glasses.<br/><br/>A young photographer and his model fiancé take some photos at Marineland (are walruses and seals sexy?). He inherits a &quot;castle&quot; from a 108-year-old relative. They decide they&#39;ll live and work out of the castle without having seen it, and that they&#39;ll have to evict the old couple who&#39;d been renting it.<br/><br/>Meanwhile, at the castle, mute hunchbacked servant Mango (!?) and genteel butler (and moon god Luna cultist) George are acquiring female &quot;guests&quot; to chain in the basement to keep a ready supply for their vampire bosses. The vampires realize they&#39;ll have to get the young couple to let them stay in the castle one way or another.<br/><br/>Also showing up is the vampires&#39; friend Johnny, a homicidal maniac. Just on his way to the castle, he kills four people, and that&#39;s when he&#39;s on his best behavior! Repeatedly, it is said that he&#39;s worse when there&#39;s a full moon. He&#39;s not a werewolf, though.<br/><br/>It&#39;s a pretty silly movie, but it&#39;s not awful.
