One cult group of a strange blood looks for more, while an innocent woman collapses on the floor and cries out for the return of the baby daughter she once gave birth to. “They can’t leave until I say so,” threatens a vampire count and leader of a dark cult who all live in his same mansion. The 1960’s horror film, from which stemmed a good amount of other Hammer British and American film series, wrapped around the same subject material, the green potion of love he (the head count & vampire) feeds everyone who comes to visit. In order to bite them, and as vampires are said to do, the count uses the drink and a form of psychotic mind-control to change the minds of everyone he victimizes to do what he wants them to do.
A lot of other young women already taken up by the cult follow the son of the head vampire around as if he is God. These roam from room to room whenever our new visitors, and the stars of the movie come for a little honeymoon. Strangely enough, the honeymooners do not seem to notice the strange behavior of the family at the home where they are only supposed to be temporary guests. The two also fail to recognize that they are soon to be the main course of dinner for the vampire cult. At the strange, grey, dark & haunted town, owners of a b&b, escort brand new guests to the best room they have. This way, they say. At the Grand Hotel, Gerald and his new bride endure and survive an almost fatal 1963 Kiss Of The Vampire kiss, the film supposed to had happened during a more ancient time & re-premiered by a recent & most gloriously done Me-TV television Horror Host Svengoolie also haunted hosted show.
Rice found reveals that the two are just newly wed. “The tea will get cold, darling,” warns his new bride. Shortly though, an invitation from a certain count comes. However the tipoff, “Come just as you are, informal,” should have been & tipped the wedding couple off to a whole lot more, according to Svengoolie and his hilarious form of slapstick jokes and other comedies of many errors. The Svengoolie Show, aimed more tenderly at children and a family style of show, whose style of origin date most authentically back to the days of vaudeville and of families spending more time together draped around an old radio, Svengoolie and his show features a host of interesting black & white horror films & which air live every weekend on television.
Back to our movie, the innocent honey-mooners whose knowledge about the vampire cult just down the road enter from a rather transcendent meaning from which the entire wardrobe of the bride just disappears suddenly one day. A porcelain upbringing, bride Marianne Harcourt (Jennifer Daniel) should have known better than to take a vacation at the same neck of the woods where a Bohemian vampire dwelt. Brand new husband, groom Gerald (Edward de Souza) also fared poorly after given a drink, or rather slipped a mickey by another vampire during the masquerade gala. “Sometimes the most beautiful things are made of the most umpromising of materials,” warns a foreboding host of a Count Dragula persuasion. Soon, the wedding guests find out the mystery of the fact. The cult group only uses and feasts on guests for selfish personal means.
Also according to Svengoolie who briefs fans on horror movie trivia during intermission time, this movie featured under the title of Kiss Of Evil for the American film version, the American distributors of the film are Universal Pictures, while the United Kingdom distributors, U.K. , feature the J. Arthur Rank Film Distributors. That and a lovely daughter of Doctor Zhavago actor, Omar Sharif also had a part as one of the women of the film here. The wife and female host of the b&b whose daughter abducted by the evil count, a major theme throughout the film, the woman shown grieving significantly at every major turn of every major scene of the show for her daughter, has great difficulty fulfilling her duties as a b&b hostess due to the grief over her lost and abducted child. But her husband who has some faith regarding a town hero and vampire-slayer urges her on.
