Dracula vs Frankenstein (1971)
One of director Al Adamson’s best known films finds the aging Dr. Frankenstein (J. Carroll Nash) posing as “Dr. Durea” and running the Freak Emporium on the boardwalk. Hidden in the back of the place is his laboratory and imbecile servant Groton (Lon Chaney, Jr.), who heads out to decapitate the occasional young mini-skirted woman. Enter Count Dracula. He wants a serum that the doctor is working on for his own use, and offers up the doc’s original “monster” (John Bloom) in exchange for it. Meanwhile, a missing girl subplot is squeezed between the aging horror stars doing the mad scientist gig. Things end an epic battle between the two classic monsters.. well, OK, a mild battle between the two classic monsters. With Angelo Rossitto, Forrest Ackerman, Gary Kent, Anthony Eisley, and Russ Tamblyn as a biker. Includes commentary from producer Sam Sherman, a featurette, alternate ending, deleted scenes, trailer, and more! Now out of print DVD.
