Centuries ago: A not yet vampirized Count Dracula (Jamie Gillis) falls
in love with Surka (Samantha Fox - the American one, not the British page
3 girl), the gamekeeper's daughter - but his father would not permit the
union, and so she is sent to a convent. This throws him off-balance to
such a degree that he eventually rapes Surka publicly, at one of his
parties. He only comes to understand what he has done the next day when he
finds she has killed herself. As a consequence, he denounces God and
curses himself to become a vampire.
Now: Castle Dracula in Romania has
become a tourist attraction, but the Count is still around, and he has fed
on virgin blood ever since he has become a vampire. So nowadays he's
master of quite a stable of sexy, scantily-clad female vampires - even if
all women, living or undead, other than Surka bore him. Eventually, he
decides to leave Romania for the USA, and thus he kills of his harem using
holy water to start 100% anew.
In the USA however, he is believed to be
a communist spy, plus the ship he came over on was also used by drugrunner
Vita Valdes (Vanessa del Rio) to smuggle drugs into the country - and as a
result, he has to deal with her gang as well. But amidst all the
confusion, Dracula becomes head of the Romanian cultural exchange
organisation, and (in a turn of events) Vita his (vampirized) secretary.
Then one of those he auditions though, Sally (Samantha Fox again) turns
out to be the splitting image of his long-lost Surka, and the two fall in
love. And suddenly everything else becomes secondary for Dracula, but he
more and more comes to the conviction he mustn't let her to a life similar
to his own, so he decides to return to Romania. Thing is of course, Sally
is a secret service-agent, and her boss (Eric Edwards) is jealous that
Dracula steals her away from him (even though she was assigned to his
In the end, everybody wants to kill Dracula, the secret service,
the Russians, Vita Valdes, a klutzy cop (Mark Dexter), etc, but Sally has
decided to give herself up to lift Dracula's curse, and the end sees the
two of them flying away in the shape of doves while everyone else is left
There are some good things to say about this
hardcore pornographic Dracula-flick: It's at times
atmospheric, at times genuinely funny, the sex is rather well integrated
into the proceedings, some thought was put into the script, and as a whole
it's not half as moronic as most other plot-driven porn flicks.
Exotica is not a particularly good porn movie: Basically it's because
of the film's very disjointed nature, there is just two much content, too
many subplots packed into its 100 minutes of running time, and thus the
central plot, Dracula's centuries-spanning lovestory, gets lost somewhere
in the thick of it. On top of that, the vampire story and the Cold War
espionage undercurrents don't go together particularly well. And on top of
that, Jamie Gillis, certainly one of the more talented porn actors,
just fails to convince as Dracula by type.
Having said all that, you
have most probably seen both worse porn flicks and worse Dracula-flicks
- but that's not a good enough reason to watch this one still.
