* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The movie is supposed to be set sometime in 1917, but Dracula and Anton seem to have an easy time driving from Romania to Italy despite the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne deep militaristic and political turmoil that would have been going on at the time]].
** Also, as noted below, Mario has the [[HistoryOfTheUSSR Hammer and Sickle]] in his room, a symbol that would not have existed at this time.

* TheBadGuyWins: Arguably.

* TheBadGuyWins: Arguably. Mario defeats and kills Dracula, but this version of Dracula is so sympathetic and Mario is so hateful that it's hard to really see it as a good thing.



* DirtyCommunist: Played with, in that Mario is the closest thing this movie has to a hero, but Mario is still an abusive thug [[spoiler: and rapist]] who is arguably less sympathetic than Dracula.

* InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt: Andy Warhol's name was slapped on the alternate titles of both films but he had little to do with them.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: The two middle daughters to a certain extent, although their 'innocence' is a semantic point. They think nothing of stripping outside in full view of the entire plantation, and while they do have sex with Mario, they believe it doesn't count since he is of a lower class. They seem to have similar opinions while having sex with each other. Therefore, when Dracula asks if they're virgins, they claim that they are, and firmly believe they're telling the truth.
* JerkassVictim: The two daughters Dracula initially goes after are selfish, materialistic, and have such contempt for the lower classes that they don't even count having sex with them as real sex, which leads to Dracula mistaking them for virgins.
** In fact, when [[spoiler: Dracula turns them into vampires, they try to rape their younger sister.]] It is unclear if they did this because they were BrainwashedAndCrazy at this point, or if they simply did it ForTheEvulz.

* MarketBasedTitle: In some markets, the previous film was called ''Andy Warhol's Frankenstein'' in order to cash in on his fame while ''Blood For Dracula'' was given the similar title ''Andy Warhol's Dracula''. Morrissey would later regret this since many people believed Warhol wrote and directed these films.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: The movie takes place in Italy but it's in English so it's expected that no one would have an accurate accent. And for the most part, they don't. Of particular note are Udo Kier who has a hilariously thick German accent and Joe Dellesandro who has a hilariously thick New York accent.

* UnequalPairing: The wealthy sisters and their farmhand. Rather than being romantic, though, the difference of class means that the sisters don't believe the sex has any impact on their virginity. (This comes back to bite them later on.)

* WouldntHurtAChild: Dracula is appalled with the idea of killing children despite needing virgin blood. Fortunately for him, near the beginning of the movie, a child is hit by a car and he's able to get by on a little bit of blood.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Despite the large amounts of nudity and sex in this movie, Morrissey was a staunch critic of the free-love movement and this film was meant to show the results of such debauchery.

Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: The mother mentions walking past Dracula's room in the night and hearing him vomiting - and yet somehow ''missed'' the hideous screams of her daughter as her jugular was pierced, leading to the aforementioned vomiting on Dracula's part.

* AssholeVictim: When the Count preys on the two middle daughters or when Mario abuses them, it's easy to not feel too much sympathy since they are basically sociopaths.

''Blood For Dracula'' is a 1974 horror movie that was filmed alongside its companion piece ''Film/FleshForFrankenstein'', which was released a year earlier. Both films were written and directed by Paul Morrissey, a frequent collaborator of CreatorAndyWarhol; Warhol allowed his name to be attached to their alternate titles but otherwise had nothing to do with them. The films also starred Joe Dallesandro, another Warhol collaborator, and Udo Kier. Both films dealt with themes of sexuality, classism, and immortality in a tongue-in-cheek manner, using classic horror figures of the 19th century. In this case, {{Dracula}}.
