Count Frankenhausen Rulz!

I'll be getting to the two Count Frankenhausen films, El vampiro sangriento (The Bloody Vampire, 1961) and La invasion de los vampiros (Invasion of the Vampires, 1962), in a future blog entry, but I came across this clip on YouTube from La invasion de los vampiros, which I don't want to lose track of, so I'm placing it here. This wild scene is the battle between Frankenhausen, who turns into a giant bat, and the hero of the story, Ulises. Enjoy!

I could be persuaded that the two Count Frankenhausen films are, overall, more enjoyable than the Abel Salazar's two "El vampiro" films. They certainly are more transfixidly demented.

I agree that the "Frankenhausen" films are probably the best of the many Mexican vampire flicks.
It has a decent plot, priceless amusement, weird music and Carlos Agosti, looking more like Stoker's Dracula than any actor before him!
