Fans of Golden Age Spanish horror – specifically the work of actor/writer/director Jacinto Molina aka Paul Naschy – have long been clamoring for a proper release of what this critic considers his greatest film, 1973’s strange and beautiful Gothic chiller Count Dracula’s Great Love.

Classic Paul Naschy Gothic horror film Count Dracula’s Great Love coming to Blu-ray.

Vinegar Syndrome will release director Javier Aguirre’s Count Dracula’s Great Love in a Blu-ray/DVD combo restored in 2K from its uncut inter-negative. After the brutal treatment this lush film has received through the years, this release is virtually a cause for a National holiday.

After a carriage load of ample-bosomed Spanish honey’s and one lucky, macho, porkchop-sideburned dude (Vic Winner) bust a wagon wheel and get stranded, the intrepid crew wind their way to Dr. Wendell Marlow’s remote country sanitarium where they are put up for the night by their gracious host. The thing is, the good doc is actually the legendary Count Dracula in disguise and not only is he hungry for their blood…he’s lonely.

Faster than you can say ‘Parasitic Paella’ each comely cutie is vampirized, first by a wandering, bug eyed, bloody necked stray ghoul (who got bitten by Drac after dropping off a coffin to the clinic in the creepy, skull-splitting pre-credits opening sequence), then by the now inexplicably lesbian-ized undead women themselves. All become fang fodder, except the sweet, virginal Karen (the equally lovely Haydee Politoff) who catches Dracula’s eye and warms his cockles, a coffin-cuddling crush that may prove to be the Count’’s ultimate downfall.
