BLOOD OF DRACULA'S CASTLE - Don Hulette - "TJB Mood" (1969)

The only musical credits on "Blood Of Dracula's Castle" besides the title tune we presented a few months back, go to Don Hulette, who only gets credited for additional music in the music department, but was probably responsible for this music. A couple more of his soundtrack accomplishments from the 60's are "They Saved Hitler's Brain" and "The Madmen Of Mandoras."

I'd say they were very lucky to be able to shoot this opening sequence of scenes at "Marineland!"

The photographer inherits a castle, and thinks it will make a good backdrop for his photos, so maybe he can sell them to Universal (The people who brought us "Frankenstein" etc!) Get it?

Los Angeles circa 1969! It's quite understandable why this music sounds vaguely like "The Tijuana Brass!" You know, it was just that era, and that "TJB Mood" was quite popular!

They go up in the 320 foot "Sky Tower", and you get a chance to see something you'll never see again in your lifetime, open fields and open land right along that old Southern California coastline in Palos Verdes!

This is just a taste of what the happy couple has waiting for them!!

Vampires always suck, but this Al Adamson vehicle, and this vampire couple really suck on more than one level, and let me tell you something, that ain't V-8 they're drinking!!!

Wow! Does this bring back memories! I went to Marineland back in the day at about the time that this epic was filmed! Kinda makes me sad how our Golden State has “filled out.”
