      Oh boy, is this the most incoherent movie ever made or what?

      Warning: You may want to take an aspirin before reading this review. In 1970, Independent International Films had a hit with Satan’s Sadist, a biker gang movie, and the following year a sequel (Satan’s Blood Freaks) was put into production. But.

      the biker picture sub-genre fad quickly came to a halt like

      most movie fads, so, Independent International switched gears in the middle of production and shot a bunch of scenes with Count Dracula and the Frankenstein Monster (!) and edited them into the biker film to create a. well.

      ummm. a mess.

      I’ll ignore the biker part (the biker scenes are slow and dull) and get into the monster aspect of the ‘plot. ’ Count Dracula (The fake named Zandor Vorkov, a STOCKBROKER who was talked into doing the film because he looked like Dracula - and obviously worked cheap) approaches Dr.

      Frankenstein (J. Carol Nash in his final role) to develop a blood serum, bring back the old Frankenstein Monster and conquer the world.

      the biker gang or murdered by an axe wielding Lon Chaney Jr (who looks horrible from years of alcoholism and suffering from cigarette induced throat cancer at the time of filming) and.

      well. it makes my head hurt to describe the plot because I have no idea were the biker film begins or the monster movie ends.

      or begins. (look for cheap cutaways of Dracula watching

      in the shadows.

      nonsensical match cuts to weave him into unrelated scenes belonging to a different film) As idiotic as all this is sounds, its still marginally fun when the monsters show up to induce mayhem and relieve tedium. Plus, the Frankenstein Monster’s demise is the greatest Frankenstein Monster demise ever.

      perhaps only rivaled by Hammer’s Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed finale. A classic dreadful pleasure.

      Watch at your own risk.
