Nocturna: Granddaughter of Dracula

Nocturna: Granddaughter of Dracula is a 1979 disco/comedy/vampire film, scattered throughout with the occasional nude bathing and sex scenes, very much a product of its time. I laughed all the way though this one. It was John Carradine's last time to play the Count, who has been forced to turn his castle into a hotel to pay the taxes. Yvonne De Carlo plays Dracula's old lover Jugulia Vein.

Time Out concludes with this: "It's all terrible, but there's no indication that it's meant to be anything else. Only see it when you feel very, very silly."


  1. If you can laugh all the way through a horror film, then that is one I might actually like. Thanks for the review and links.

  2. I was waiting for a call and decided to pass the time watching this piece of fluff. I wonder if this was X rated. From the opening credits on, I felt like I was in a disco time warp. Yes, I laughed, too. Mostly from the horrible acting, though.

    1. It's definitely campy. "disco time warp" is a perfect description! Various online sites say it was rated R at its release.
