Dracula Sucks is a 1978 American pornographic horror film directed and co-written by Philip Marshak. The film is based on the 1931 film Dracula, and the 1897 novel of the same name by Bram Stoker. It stars Jamie Gillis as Count Dracula, a vampire who purchases an estate next to a mental institution. The film also stars Annette Haven, John Leslie, Serena, Reggie Nalder, Kay Parker, and John Holmes. An alternate cut of Dracula Sucks, titled Lust at First Bite, has also been released.
In a psychiatric institution patients are acting oddly and are being found with bite marks in their necks. Professor Van Helsing believes it to be the work of vampires and just when things are bad, it gets worse with the arrival of Count Dracula.
Kristen Sollee of Bustle called the film "a gem from the first wave of horror porn."
In October 2014, Dracula Sucks was released on DVD by Vinegar Syndrome. In August 2018, Vinegar Syndrome released the film on Blu-ray as part of their 5 Films 5 Years Volume #3 set, a release which also contains four other films. In 2021, it was released on 4k UHD and Bluray under the Peekarama label .
