This film and its companion piece, JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER (1966), together form one of the weirdest genre hybrids in cinema history, and both were directed by the infamous Hollywood hack William Beaudine. John Carradine, who hadn't played Dracula since THE HOUSE OF
DRACULA in 1945, stars once again as the world's most famous vampire. However, the locale has switched from central Europe to the American Old West. Dracula arrives in town on a stagecoach and sets himself up as the uncle of attractive ranch owner Betty (Melinda Plowman) by hypnotising her.
Meanwhile, a reformed Billy the Kid (Chuck Courtney), who has landed a job as the foreman of Betty's ranch and fallen in love with his boss, begins to suspect that Betty's "uncle" is up to no good. This truly bad movie is, nonetheless, good fun and Carradine contributes a delightfully hammy
performance. More western than horror film, the action climaxes in a silver mine as Dracula is cornered by Billy the Kid and the town doctor, who inexplicably just happens to know everything there is to know about vampires.
