Count Dracula's Great Love (1972)
aka "Dracula", "Dracula's Castle", "Dracula: The Movie","Cemetery Girls", "Vampire Playgirls", "Cemetery Tramps", "Enter Dracula" and "Dracula's Virgin Lovers. Stranger's arrive at Castle Dracula and are greeted by a stocky, sad Count Dracula (Paul Naschy).
Another European attempt to imitate the Hammer formula for horror, the plot is most similar to "Dracula, Prince of Darkness", with the most notable exception being Dracula's verbosity. Naschy, who is no Christopher Lee, makes an unusual Dracula, but never-the-less turns in a good performance as always. His Dracula seems depressed, even in his villainy. Full of scantily clad busty female Vampires. Lots of lace, cleavage, fangs and dripping blood. Probably not safe for work.
