Lina Romay, as Transylvania's militaristic minister of cultural affairs, brings Dracula's coffin - with the vampire (Kike Sarasola)  neatly staked inside - to a Spanish amusement park where punk band the Killer Barbies are to perform. During their performance, though, the vampire's stake gets somehow removed, and, when watching the band's concert, Dracula falls in love with sexy lead singer Silvia Superstar. 

But, to still his thirst for blood, Dracula also has to bite some people to death, among them ex-sex-star Katja Bienert as a tv-reporter & his own arrogant descendant (Bela B.Felsenheimer of the extremely popular German fun-punk-band die Ärzte) , as well as a fake Dracula (Peter Martell) & a militaristic Romanian government official (of course Lina Romay). 

Soon, there's vampire galore since the vampire infection has become epedemic, & the police - not all that familiar with the supernatural - knows little to do against it, but fortunately, the wise but blind doctor Seward (Dan van Husen) drops by & makes up a plan that involves Silvia Superstar running around some misty streets & being attacked by Dracula on stage. 

In the end, pretty much everyone in the movie still alive helps in hammering a stake through the vampire's heart.


Though it has an intentionally stupid story & intentionally silly dialogue, this movie is full of missed opportunities, since due to a messed up screenplay that has many plot-elements lead to nowhere, much of the fun comes across rather pointless in the end. And, this movie, though most of the women are in revealing, even sexy outfits, contains no nudity. Well come on, after all, this is a Jess Franco movie !!!

Lina Romay's performance is pretty funny though, a broad caricature of a sadistic prison warden (of which Franco had so many in his movies during the 70's), but the best performance is Dan van Husen as charismatic (charismatic ? He has to be, his assistant announces him that way !) Dr. Seward, a perfect parody of the blind Dr. Orloff of Jess Franco's La Comtesse Noire/Female Vampire from some 30 years earlier - a performance that is still highly hilarious even if you haven't seen that film !
