Love At First Bite

A dated American spoof of the Dracula series, shown for February’s movie of the month at Castellani, in honour of Valentine’s Day.
 As usual they tried a bit too hard and the jokes got to be a bit laboured. I liked that back in the early ‘70s the actress was allowed to have age lines in/on the forehead, frizzy head and heavy thighs reflecting a more real woman!  George Hamilton- even in his early days – obviously realized his limitations as an actor and heavily powdered played his role with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, rather like Roger Moore in the James Bond role- sort of I’m taking the piss out of this role and not taking myself too seriously so don’t criticize me! The ending was a forerunner of Shrek but all in all the usual forgettable light-weight American stuff.
