Synopsis: Vampirina (Alysabeth Clements) is Count Dracula’s daughter. Vampirina lustful desires by seducing lesbian virgins. She has been searching for several centuries for the reincarnated soul of the vampire hunter who murder her father Count Dracula. Once she finds the soul she has been searching for will fall into the same trappings which lead to her fathers doom or will she get the revenge she has searched centuries for?Dracula’s Dirty Daughter was previously released in 2000 under the title Mistress of Seduction. Dracula’s Dirty Daughter is the second film form writer/director Michele Pacitto who most recent screenplay Alice in Wasteland was directed by Lasse Jarvi and Pete Schuermann in 2006. The direction in Dracula’s Dirty Daughter is very good with the films numerous lesbians trysts all being shot stylishly and edited for maximum effect. The films screenplay what there is of a story is filled with holes and many instances that just don’t mesh.

The premise of Count Dracula’s daughter searching for her fathers’ reincarnated killer is a solid idea then end result fails to match the inspiration. The acting while not as bad as the acting in a Troma film, still it feels stilted as each performer just seems to be reading lines and not giving the feeling they mean the lines they say. Even from a campy or it is so bad its good perspective Dracula’s Dirty Daughter will still be a hard sell to fans of these types of films.

Ultimately Dracula’s Dirty Daughter was undeniable made for the soft core market and even though the film has is fare share of soft core romps the picture as a whole is just flawed enough that fans of soft core cinema will have hard time digesting this one.

 

The DVD:

Dracula’s Dirty Daughter is presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio. Colors and flesh tones look accurate. Even though the transfer looks soft at times, it still looks clear and free of any distracting defects or print damage.

This release comes with one audio option a Dolby Digital stereo mix in English. The audio is clean and clear and free of any major defects.

Extras for this release include Secret Key trailer vault, Secret Key retro sampler (7 minutes), cast auditions (5 minutes) and a behind the Scenes segment (13 minutes). The extras while appreciated are a mixed bag overall as most of them are non feature related. Ultimately Dracula’s Dirty Daughter is a sup par film that gets an above average DVD release.
