Gran Amor del Conde Drácula, El (1973, SPA) C-76m. ** D: Javier Aguirre. Starring Paul Naschy, Haydée Politoff, Rosanna Yanni, Ingrid Garbo, Mirta Miller, Víctor Alcázar. Rather tired Euro-horror flick about several travelers, whose coach breaks down near the infamous Volgo Pass in Transsylvania. They seek refuge in a nearby castle - and guess who comes to great them?! Naschy, who sleepwalks through his role as Dracula, is no match for Christopher Lee. Some good special effects and a nice score (by Carmelo A. Bernaola) make this bearable. Uncut print runs longer. English titles: DRACULA'S GREAT LOVE, COUNT DRACULA'S GREAT(EST) LOVE, CEMETERY GIRLS, CEMETERY TRAMPS, DRACULA'S VIRGIN LOVERS, and VAMPIRE PLAYGIRLS.
