Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis

A businessman turns into a vampire after drinking brandy laced with vampire blood, then sets out on an odyssey of killing the descendent's of Dracula's executioners. With bad acting, poor camera work and editing, and overall bad sound, the film's saving grace is the story itself. It makes good use of Stoker's characters; not only does this descendent of Dracula have to deal with descendents of Van Helsing and Harker, he's also dealing with many characters that rarely make it into a Dracula-type movie

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
