Hippy Pico (Bill Ewing) - who knows Kung Fu by the way - has just befriended biker Monk (William Jordan) and taken him and his girlfriend Esslin (Betty Anne Rees) to the hippies' favourite hangout, when Khorda (Robert Quarry), a man with the aura of a mystic, arrives and promises all those present to reveal the secrets of life to them. All the hippies and even Esslin fall for it, only Monk thinks it's just bullshit and leaves ... and soon enough, he's killed by Khorda, who also seduces then attacks Esslin, because you know, he's a vampire.

Of all the hippies, only Pico figures there must be something wrong - and thus is chained up in the dungeon for his curiosity. However, he manages to escape and convince his fatherly friend Pop (John Fielder) there's something wrong at their hangout, and the two go vampire-hunting, but are not only outnumbered, Khorda even holds Rona (Brenda Dickson), Pico's girlfriend, hostage. Pico manages to make an escape, if only just, but Pop stays behind, unfortunately.

Pico gets himself a stake and returns to the castle, where Rona is about to be sacrificed (or something), and he staks whom he thinks to be Khorda, only to find out he's actually killed Pop. Then Khorda attacks, and only eventually does the young hippy manage to stake him as well. With Khorda dead, all the hippies he has bitten turn to dust - and in the end, Rona as well, who has served as the centerpiece of Khorda's ceremony.

 

As a horrorfilm, this one is totally pointless, an uneven mix of vampire motives and the Charles Manson-story, but as a piece of early 70's nostalgia, the film is almost priceless, chock full of hippy- and biker-clichés and supposedly cool lingo, and the film's low budget origins only help creating that effect, adding a bit of authencity to the proceedings. I mean, don't get me wrong, Deathmaster is still a pretty silly film, it's just pretty funny at that.
