Presented in partnership with Something Weird Video...

The American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) represents the world's largest theatrical catalog of exploitation cinema. Their home video line presents a diverse selection of movies, ranging from new preservations of classics from the vast library of Something Weird to the wildest in shot-on-video (SOV) titles. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

Escaping from the brain-baked wasteland of Texas and the wasteland-brain of wildman producer Whit Boyd, DRACULA (THE DIRTY OLD MAN) is the movie that Bram Stoker's estate doesn't want you to see. The deranged story follows Dracula and his faithful werewolf servant Irving Jackalman as they unleash a reign of psychosexual terror upon humankind. But that's only half the story. The movie's original soundtrack was discarded and replaced with voices and narration that were clearly improvised. The result is what might have happened if an episode of DARK SHADOWS was hijacked by Russ Meyer, then dubbed by a Borscht Belt comedian from Mars. AGFA + Something Weird have assembled a fangtastic tribute to this outsider spectacle, complete with two versions of the film and extras that are a bite for sore eyes.
