Paul Morrissey Horror Special: “Flesh for Frankenstein” (1973) and “Blood for Dracula” (1974) | pre-show clips and trailers

In this upcoming podcast, Dan Pullen and Bradley J Kornish will be joined once again by a favorite guest of ours Author/Cartoonist/Filmmaker Ricky Sprague. We will be exploring the depths of depravity that lie within the Morrissey/Warhol/Udo Keir classics from the 1970’s “Blood for Dracula” (1974) and “Flesh for Frankenstein”.

We like to say that we like to talk about ‘fucked-up-films’ especially those that leave, or have left a lasting impression. Watching the film ‘Flesh for Frankenstein’ in 3D as a young impressionable 13 year old, I was basically doomed to have flashbacks of this film for the rest of my life (I actually watched it 2 times in a row). This is not a bad thing, and it sure beats having flashbacks to ‘Herbie Goes Bananas’ (seen around the same time). But it gave me a helluva high bar to beat for its level of questionable activity, bloodletting, and murder and mayhem.

We will have lots to talk about, including Udo Keir’s brilliant over-the-top performances in both films, my childhood traumas and Dan Pullen’s seeming obsession with the famous ‘Gallbladder’ scene in ‘Flesh for Frankenstein.

Until then, here are lots of goodies for you to explore before the show, including clips, trailers and interviews… both of these films are a virtual treasure trove of macabre images, wonderfully campy bits of insanity, and especially in the case of ‘Blood for Dracula” beautifully shot scenes and a really great soundtrack.

As usual, the movie info below is culled from different movie wiki’s, I take no credit for any goodness. Also, from what I can tell, both films are licensed and not ‘public domain’ films. you can find some streams on Youtube and elsewhere, bt I am not sure about the legitimacy of those versions. There are also some Blu-ray editions, but I cannot say with certainty that they are worth the investment.

Blood For Dracula 1974 intro with Udo Kier - HD - Andy Warhol's touch on "Blood For Dracula" 1974 movie (AKA Andy Warhol's Dracula): opening credits with Udo Kier (in the role of Count Dracula). The film was written and directed by Paul Morrissey in 1973 under the name of the Andy Warhol's Factory and released in 1974. In spite of the fact that Andy Warhol didn't take a part in the creative process himself the very idea of the opening credits with Udo Kier sitting in front of the mirror and applying make-up of Count Dracula belongs exactly to him. Music by Claudio Gizzi.
