Countess Dracula (1971)

My Instagram Post 06 October 2019

This movie isn’t good but it’s also sort of amazing? You heard me wax rhapsodic about this in week 3, and I stand by that although I forgot to mention the world’s biggest loofah and how much Ingrid Pitt seriously gnaws on the scenery. She’s almost ridiculous and I’m here for it.

We also have maybe the dumbest of all Boring Mannequins here in Sandor Elès, but at least he’s actually Hungarian and this movie is set in Hungary and everyone else (save Pitt) is British, his accent is a nice touch. But omg he’s dumb. I do think it’s the very, super dumb character who is so dumb here, and have to believe he’s better than this part? Oh! and the lovely Lesley-Anne Down shows up! And screws everything up in the end but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
