Storyline

Harry (Chriss Lee) is a young, Jewish scientist who lives with his overprotective and overbearing mother, Ida (Victoria Barkoff). He spends most of his time in his laboratory trying to isolate the guilt gene, using live rats for his tests.

When the laboratory administration announces a major budget cut, he can no longer afford the number of rats he needs to continue his research. But Harry does not despair; he finds an agency that supplies rats from Transylvania at a very low price. When he is bitten by one of these specimens, his quiet life takes quite a radical turn

Henceforth, Harry undergoes a nightly transformation into Draghoula, a vampire in drag who roams the streets in search of fresh, human blood. This daily metamorphosis does not go unnoticed by Harrys mother, nor his co-worker, Sabrina (Stephanie Seidle), who is secretly in love with him. Convinced they are each the only ones that hold the key to returning Harry to his original state, they both set out, in turn, to save him.

A fine example of a "quality" B-movie.
27 July 2004 | by ChaleurSee all my reviews

Don't expect to take it seriously. If you want a B-movie that you can laugh at, this is one of the best I've ever seen. It's a little slow to get going, but once the main character becomes Draghoula and starts cross dressing (badly), things really get going. The way he chases down his victims is absolutely brilliant in its horror. I haven't laughed that hard in ages. I'd be scared too, if that guy was chasing me!

There's this one scene in front of a church....well, you'll know it when you see it. The actress who plays Sabrina is either a horrible actress, or a genius who is able to act like a horrible actress. If you're the kind of person who likes B-movies, that should just add to the film's charm. Then there's a chase scene around (yes around) a car that's pretty brilliant, and the final scene is almost Shakespearean in its ridiculously.

All in all I'd say that this one is definitely a keeper.
