About BLOOD FOR DRACULA

“It has obvious appeal for the lover of Grand Guignol, but it equally addresses the thoughtful.” — Maurice Yacowar, THE CRITERION COLLECTION

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 BICYCLE THIEVES director Vittorio De Sica co-star in one of the most unique and outrageous vampire films in history, now scanned uncut in 4K from the original negative for the first time ever.

About FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN

See it in 3D!

“The blood splashes as noisily as an open fire hydrant.” -- Nora Sayre, NEW YORK TIMES

A delectably gory and cynical social satire from acclaimed filmmaker Paul Morrissey (BLOOD FOR DRACULA), FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN is among the most original and transgressive interpretations of Mary Shelley’s classic novel.

Baron von Frankenstein (Udo Kier, SUSPIRIA), with the help of his bizarre assistant Otto, is determined to create a new master race. To achieve his objective, he constructs two perfect “zombies” from an assemblage of body parts, intending them to mate. Meanwhile, complications ensue as Nicholas, a farm hand, begins an affair with the Baron’s sexually frustrated wife all while searching for his missing friend Nicholas (Joe Dallesandro, CRY BABY), whose head and brain have been used for Frankenstein’s male "zombie.”

Upon its release, FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN became an immediate midnight and cult movie sensation. Now, the movie has been newly restored from its original negative!
