Daughter of Dracula
Directed by Jess Franco
When the nude body of a murdered woman washes onto the beach, a police inspector and a reporter focus their attention on the castle of Count Max Karlstein and his niece, a beautiful woman who appears to be wrestling with an ancestral curse. In the early 1970s, cult filmmaker Jess Franco—inspired by the Hammer horror films being made in the UK—revisited the iconic monsters of yesteryear, placing them in the castles and crypts of the Spanish countryside, and bracketing the thrills with scenes of frank eroticism. DAUGHTER OF DRACULA was inspired by Sheridan LeFanu’s “Carmilla”, but as one might expect, Franco’s version was unlike any treatment the story had yet received.

Has very little to offer other than titillating nude scenes. We need Joe Bob Briggs to tackle this one so we can get an accurate breast count.
Hmmm....having only seen the cover, I feel as if I know exactly what this film is going to offer (ie- the placement of the banner that reads "a film by Jess Franco".
Maybe if I was into soft core vampire porn I would have given it more then one. But as it stands there was more focus on the womens bodys then there was an actual story line. It was boring for me.
OK movie. Consistent with the year of filming for sexual exploitation film marked up as horror.
