Count Dracula’s pregnant granddaughter arrives at his castle, along with her husband, who is not a vampire. While she prepares to give birth to a new member of the Dracula line, her husband secretly launches into a series of affairs with the Count’s resident “brides.”

“La Saga De Los Drácula” is an overall very interesting and highly atmospheric film that bears more surprises and unexpected elements than one might think. Spanish Gothic Horror films such as Klimovsky’s usually have a very particular inimitable charm to them, and “La Saga De Los Drácula” a good example for that. Even though the budget obviously wasn’t gigantic, the atmosphere is eerily beautiful, and the plot is quite original. The female cast members are entirely gorgeous, especially the red-headed Helga Liné, who is known for her (often sexy) roles in other European Gothic Horror productions including “Nightmare Castle”, “Horror Rises From the Tomb”, “Las Garras De Lorelei”, “Mio Caro Assassino” and others. As it is to be expected, the film includes its share of nudity, sleaze and gore. Narciso Ibáñez Menta is a very unusual (since very old, and comparably un-villainous) Count Dracula, which isn’t a bad thing; on the contrary, this different version of the most famous of Vampires contributes to the film’s originality. The cinematography is elegant as in all Klimovsky films, and the music by Johann Sebastian Bach fits the film amazingly well, especially the harpsichord parts.
