Vampiress Review: "Capulina contra los Vampiros"

The Gist: A fool takes the job as a caretaker for an estate overrun by vampires and unknowingly helps to resurrect Dracula.

Female Vampire Factor: Rossy Mendoza plays the mistress of the house.
She uses Capulina to take the spear out of Dracula that was keeping him dead.  Once he does, he is fair game and she along with Dracula proceed to try to feed on him.
Also in the mansion are several other vampire brides who are brought to life once Dracula is resurrected.  They don't get much screen time outside of a few chase scenes though.

Final Opinion: This film is a Spanish language slapstick comedy which is part of a 1970's franchise featuring the character Capulina who's a bumbling fool character.  To say it's corny is a bit of an understatement.  We're talking "Three Stooges" level absurd.  The vampires in the film are dealt with by having their fangs removed and instead of killing them Capulina kind of adopts them and feeds them milk out of baby bottles now that they can't bite people (before waking up realizing the thing may or may not have been a dream).  I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.  The female vampires are great, you just have to sit through a ton of corny slap stick to get to it.
