Title: Dracula, Prisoner Of Frankenstein
CinemaBandits Title: Be Nice, Or Dr Frankenstein Will Tell His Mommy On You!

CinemaBandits Review: If you like watching people scream for no apparent reason... or you like vampire movies shot in Mexico... or you simply like watching a werewolf with an afro battle Frankenstein... then Dracula, Prisoner Of Frankenstein is the movie for you!

But the fun doesn't stop there....

The movie takes place in the late 19th century, yet, inexplicably, a 1960's mini-van makes a brief cameo appearance about 1/3 of the way into the film. Didn't exactly do their history homework, I guess!

The movie was shot in English... then dubbed into Spanish... then subtitled back into English. Although you might not ever notice... there's only about 20 lines of dialogue in the whole movie... which makes it fun trying to figure out just what the heck is going on!

Just prior to filming, evidently the director realized he absolutely loved the zoom feature on his camera. That crazy little bugger just can't stop zooming!

And there's so many more things to hate/love about this funky burrito of a film.

But let's take a second to mention the story (a dangerous thing to do with this type of movie!). Here it is in a Mexican-Jumping-Bean-nutshell:

Count Dracula is killed by the locals. Dr Frankenstein devises a plan to take over the world. Dr Frankenstein buys Count Dracula's castle. Dr Frankenstein brings back to life not only his monster, but also Count Dracula. Dr Frankenstein doesn't notice that 10 feet away from Count Dracula's coffin is another female vampire. The female vampire turns into a bat and flies around Dr Frankenstein. Dr Frankenstein becomes offended and gives up. The End.

I'm guessing Dr Frankenstein never heard the expression "Winner's never quit"... or even "Sticks & stones...."!
