Toothpaste businessman Costante (Lando Buzzanca) is doing alright - but he could do a lot better if it wasn't for his superstitions. Then he travels to Romania, where he meets up with Count Draculescu (John Steiner), the last of the Draculas, who throws a party in his honour, at which Costante drinks a whole lot - and thus despite the presence of three attractive naked ladies (Franca Martelli, Barbara Musci, Ilona Staller), he lands in bed with Draculescu himself.

Costante leaves Romania in a rush and now panics he might have become gay - until his mistress (Christa Linder) cuts herself and he sucks out her wound - and feels not only envigorated by it, he also becomes the mean person he has always kept himself from becoming. And he soon feels a thirst for more and more blood, which can only mean one thing: He has become a vampire - not only in the traditional sense but also in the metaphorical sense first suggested by Karl Marx (vampirism = capitalism).

After various encounters he has when either trying to get rid of the curse or quench his thirst for blood, he finds a solution to make everybody happy, even the unions: Obligatory but paid blood donations. Then though he learns his wife (Sylva Koscina) is pregnant, and figures he's not a vampire after all, because vamprires can't have children. Then his son is born with fangs though ...

Rossano Brazzi plays Costante's psychiatrist, Moira Orfei an S/M prostitute in a weird costume in what's probably the film's funniest scene.


A comedy that just doesn't seem to know what it's about: Is it a shallow vampire comedy or socio-political satire, or just a movie about a henpecked husband, or even an erotic comedy. This lack of direction, plotwise, is mirrored in the film's actual narrative, which totally lacks stringency and seems to be made up of isolated episodes of varying quality rather than supported by an actual storyline. Add to this leading man Lando Buzzanca, who's certainly likeable but not exactly particularly funny, and one of Lucio Fulci's lazier directorial efforts, and you are left with ... well, not pretty much.
