The credits claim this movie is based on the novel by Abraham [Bram]
Stoker, with screenplay by popular Mexican writer Ramon Obon (LA
LOBA). But the plot is basically a remake of the Hammer film Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), with
a few differences. The travelers trapped in Dracula's castle are not two
married couples, but rather a man and 3 women [providing more feminine
necks for the vampire count, who - for some reason - is called "Baron
The story is quite simple. After a fight to the 'death,' Dracula is revived
to live again; he soon terrorizes and captures a group of people visiting
the mansion. His resurrection scene is kinkier than other vampire flicks
from that time. A busty woman is suspended above the vampire's open coffin.
Assistant Igor stabs her between those impressive tits, allowing blood
to cascade down onto the Baron's corpse, thus bringing him back to life.
Director Federico Curiel was a studio workhorse, making almost a hundred
movies between his first NEUTRON
in 1960 and his last, Bohemios De Aficion [Bohemian Hobby]

VAMPIRAS (starring John Carradine and Mil Mascaras), numerous
Blue Demon films [including HELLISH
SPIDERS] and SANTO

Curiel would die from a stroke in June 1985 at age 68.
