American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) and Something Weird are feverishly excited to announce that Dracula (The Dirty Old Man) – the movie that Bram Stoker’s estate doesn’t want you to see – is now available to pre-order from vinegarsyndrome.com
The deranged story follows Dracula and his faithful werewolf servant Irving Jackalman as they unleash a reign of psychosexual terror upon humankind. But that’s only half the story. The movie’s original soundtrack was discarded and replaced with voices and narration that were clearly improvised.
Escaping from the brain-baked wasteland of Texas and the wasteland-brain of wildman producer Whit Boyd, this outsider spectacle feels like an episode of Dark Shadows that was hijacked by Russ Meyer, then dubbed by a Borscht Belt comedian from Mars. AGFA have assembled a fangtastic tribute to this much-requested title from the Something Weird vaults, complete with two versions of the film and extras that are a bite for sore eyes.
