The Mad Love Life of a Hot Vampire is a 1971 American comedy horror feature film written and directed by Ray Dennis Steckler (The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies; Blood Shack) using the pseudonym Sven Christian. The movie stars Jim Parker and Carolyn Brandt (Steckler’s real-life wife).


The movie stars Jim Parker, a TV horror host who, as “The Vegas Vampire,” hosted the Saturday night Creature Features on KVVU Channel 5 from the mid-60s to the mid-70s.


Count Dracula emerges from his coffin and urges his long-fanged vampire babes to get it on with each other (“Bend over, forward, and backward, all of you and your entire parts!”) as his Dwight Frye-faced servant toys with himself. The Count then sends his female slaves out to get blood: “Fill this vial with blood. Vile Blood. Not liver bile, but vile blood.”


Meanwhile, Von Helsing visits Bill and his blonde girlfriend, Janet. Bill’s sister is one of Dracula’s women and attacks Janet while she’s on the toilet. Finding the vampire’s lair, Von Helsing chases Dracula into the sunlight where he melts, leaving only his cape for the sobbing servant to blow his nose on.

“Dracula mugs relentlessly at the camera and says weird stuff […] The sequence where the vampire brides go out to seduce men for their blood takes up a full half of the film’s running time, and you could be forgiven for forgetting they’re supposed to be vampires by the time they finally take bites for blood (from somewhere a bit more… private than the neck).” Jason Coffman, Daily Grindhouse
