Blood for Dracula (1974)

a.k.a. Andy Warhol's Dracula

Directed by Paul Morrissey (Chelsea Girls)

One of the most popular cult films of all time, this is a witty collision of high art cinema with outrageous sex and violence.

"Morrissey fashioned the best fang farce to date in a period pic detailing anemic vampire Keir's futile search of 'wirgin' blood in a houseful of single women." - The Phantom of the Movies, The Phantom's Ultimate Video Guide


"Udo Kier is the palest, weakest, sickest vampire ever seen on screen." - Michael J. Weldon, The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film


“It has obvious appeal for the lover of Grand Guignol, but it equally addresses the thoughtful.” - Maurice Yacowar, The Criterion Collection


"Utterly hilarious." - Rex Reed


"Horror at its ultimate." - New York Daily News


"Perverse and entertaining." - The Village Voice


"A comedy triumph.  It will have you cringing and howling gleefully." - Philadelphia Daily News


"Just the right amount of fantasy and reality - consistently amusing." - Newsweek

Immediately after completing Flesh for Frankenstein, filmmaker Paul Morrissey and star Udo Kier created Blood for Dracula, a sumptuously depraved Euroshocker that tows the line between art and bad taste. Desperate for virgin blood, Count Dracula (Kier) journeys to an Italian villa only to discover the family’s three young daughters are also coveted by the estate’s Marxist stud (Joe Dallesandro of Morrissey’s Flesh, Trash, and Heat). Stefania Casini (Suspiria) and Bicycles Thieves director Vittorio De Sica co-star in one of the most unique and outrageous vampire films in history.
