Dracula Cerca Sangue Di Vergine... E Mori Di Sete!!! (1974)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Udo Kier is without a doubt the sickliest of vampires in any director's interpretation of the Bram Stoker tale. Count Dracula knows that if he fails to drink a required amount of pure virgin's [pronounced "wirgin's"] blood, it's time to move into a permanent coffin. His assistant (Renfield?) suggests that the Count and he pick up his coffin and take a road trip to Italy, where families are known to be particularly religious, and therefore should be an excellent place to search for a virgin bride. They do, only to encounter a family with not one, but FOUR virgins, ready for marriage. The Count discovers one-by-one that the girls are not as pure as they say they are, meanwhile a handsome servant/Communist begins to observe strange behaviour from the girls who do spend the night with the Count. It's a race for Dracula to discover who's the real virgin, before he either dies from malnourishment or from the wooden stake of the Communist!
He couldn't live without a virgin's blood..... ...So a virgin had to die! [UK]

More Movie Taglines:
- He couldn't live without a virgin's blood..... ...So a virgin had to die! [UK]
- Count Dracula: The blood of these whores is killing me.
Count Dracula: If you really were clever, Anton, you would bring me a virgin from Italy and I wouldn't have to go.
Anton, the Count's Servant: Things look promising. Count Dracula: O, you think so? I have no coffin to sleep in, the kitchen is full with impure meat, we've been travelling for days... No progress!
Mario Balato, the Servant: I don't see why someone like me couldn't marry you, or one of your sisters. Rubinia: Are you crazy? Mario Balato, the Servant: Yeah... your mother'd never hear of such a thing. Had a good look at him in that wheelchair, almost about to die. That's the way it is with all that rich trash. They're all sick and rotten. The only future's in socialism. Rubinia: Don't start talking about that again! You know how it bores me.
Count Dracula: It's very useful for a woman to practise home-making.
- Unlike the controversy over Flesh for Frankenstein (1973) the film suffered very minor cuts for its initial UK cinema release and was never listed as a video nasty. It was passed fully uncut for video in 1995 on the First Independent label.
Because Roman Polanski was shooting Che? (1972) in Italy on a set nearby, he was asked to do a cameo in this film. One can notice he wears the same mustache in both films.
