This threadbare Mexican production (the sequel to The Bloody Vampire) involves 16th-century bloodsucker Count Frankenhausen (Carlos Agosti), whose true identity is known only by an intrepid vampire-hunting doctor. Unfortunately, our hero is unable to convince the residents of the surrounding town that their Count is one of the undead. When his theory is finally proven correct and Frankenhausen gets a stake through the heart, legions of once-slain vampires surprisingly rise from their graves and descend upon the hapless villagers. Though the original production appears fairly atmospheric and features some legitimate chills, it is rendered utterly ridiculous (much like its predecessor) by the atrocious dubbing of the English-language version.
