At the deathbed of her mother, Louisa (Britt Nichols) learns a terrible secret: That she is the descendant of Dracula (Howard Vernon) himself, who lies in the crypt of their family's castle. & as she makes a visit to her ancestor in the crypt, she also encounters that the good count is not quite dead but bound to his coffin - but he has enough power to vampirize her, making her his willing slave ...

Soon, the police inspector (Alberto Dalbés) of the nearby village is baffled by a mysterious series of murders of women, & he is not at all helped by the meddling of journalist Charlie (Fernando Bilbao) & Jefferson (Jess Franco), servant of Count Karlstein (Daniel J.White) & expert of the occult - who is of course the only one who spots the involvement of vampires.

But even Jefferson does not know how close he is to the source of the evil, as Louisa presently stays at the estate of Count Karlstein, being his niece & a childhood friend of his daughter Karine (Anne Libert). Between the 2 women soon a lesbian relationship evolves, of course, while the Count himself soon becomes prime suspect of the murders& is only saved from jail when his mistress Anna (Yelena Samarina) testifies in his favour - even though that does mean that her affair will be revealed to her husband Jefferson.

Jefferson though commits all of his time to discover the truth behind the killings & soon hisa trail leads him to the crypt where Dracula lies. At the same time though, Louisa has actually killed Karine in sexual extasy & rushes to the crypt as well, which is bad timing, since no sooner has she lain down in her coffin that Jefferson, journalist Charlie & the inspector show up to once & for all kill the vampires (in rather an anti-climax actually).


A typical Jess Franco film, this movie oozes with eroticism & horror-pulp fiction, & tells his story in atmospheric pictures, using unusual close ups & camera-angles - but still it doesn't totally work, as narrative coherence as well as Franco's typical tongue-in-cheek humour are pretty much amiss here, making La Fille de Dracula not a total failure but a rather mediocre picture for this director.

Shot, by the way, right after Franco's Dracula contre Frankenstein & La Maldicion de Frankenstein, with the same crew, using some of the same Portuguese locations.
