User Reviews: A European vampire-tomb is unearthed by an explosion, releasing a Renfield-type minion of Count Dracula(Reggie Nalder) and his loyal bloodsucking canine named Zoltan. With a vampire-expert professor hot on their trail, they travel to America in search of the last Dracula descendant, a suburban family man unaware of his frightful ancestry.

DRACULA’S DOG is assembly-line drive-in fodder, but for a Crown International Pictures release, a bit tidier a production that one might expect. Amidst the intermittent belly laughs, a few scenes actually manage to bring on the chills. The casting of Reggie Nalder is beneficial, as well…his lizard-like mug glowing in the moonlight could send any man running for the hills.

5.5/10…a perfect flick for youngsters having Saturday night sleepovers.
