The film starts in an Oregon lighthouse in the nineteenth century. The lighthouse keeper, Captain Howdy (Richard Kiel) was awaiting the ship with his wife on board. Cue ‘jokes’ such as, given there is a storm, “she was wet, he was excited.” He also needs to get shut of his mistress Venetia (Julie Newmar, Monster Squad & Evils of the Night). She’s not too happy about this and throws herself at the light, imbuing it with her spirit, knocking him into the sea and causing the ship to wreck.

And that’s all folks. A very fleeting visitation by Dracula in a film that isn’t that funny but is passable for a single viewing, I guess. I put the poster for the film at the head of the article rather than the DVD cover as it actually has a lot of the vampire motifs displayed. The imdb page is here.
