Synopsis

Double-bill of cult director Paul Morrissey's violent, erotic, and heavily stylised takes on the gothic stories of Frankenstein and Dracula. In 'Flesh For Frankenstein' (1973), Udo Kier plays the titular scientist, who plans to create a new race of humans and needs the brain of a lusty young stableboy (Joe Dallesandro) to complete his plans. In 'Blood For Dracula' (1974), Kier plays the vampire count, who needs to consume the blood of virgins to remain alive. Travelling through Italy in search of pure young women, Dracula finds four young ladies who seem to fit the bill. Observing this strange activity is the girls' servant, Mario (Dallesandro), who begins to suspect that their new suitor is not all that he seems.
