Blood! (1973)

How bad is it? It's a better-than usual Andy Milligan film, so really awful.
Should you see it? If you really must see an Andy Milligan horror film, you could do worse.

This is supposed to take place in 1930 (one shot in 1899), but looks very 1970, particularly the sideburns. Dracula's daughter marries the Wolfman's son, they move to America and grow carnivorous plants. There's also rabid bats turning the locals into cannibals. Very wordy, as is typical with Milligan films, with a lot of uncomfortably angry people yelling hateful things for little reason, this is better paced and has more plot than most of his films. The werewolf attacks a banker... because of poor investments! The sound is terrible and a mouse gets chopped up with a meat cleaver (and that's real, as it was in "The Rats are Coming!").
