The young Englishman, Jonathon Winters, a lawyer, arrives at the house of the mysterious Count Dracula in the mountains of Translyvania on business for his employers.
The Count, who is an old man, is very hospitable, but obviously quite alone in the castle. Jonathon discovers that at night he is locked in his bedroom. When he eventually manages to free himself, he discovers a subterranean grave which is empty. Three beautiful girls who are bloodsucking vampires, fight over him. As he flees, he falls from a high castle wall.
Jess Franco's version of the Bram Stoker classic has Count Dracula as an old man who grows younger whenever he dines on the blood of young maidens.
