Dracula’s Widow (1988)

The owner of a wax museum receives a crate containing the titular character. She makes him her slave and starts to massacre various idiots throughout town. A hard-boiled cop slowly catches on and tries to take the fiend down.

I don’t get all the hate for this one. Sure, it’s no masterpiece. But as a fun monster flick it works well. Good pacing and suspense. Plenty of gore and cool creature effects. I also loved the cinematography, particularly the use of colored lights. So while it may be a b-movie, it sure wasn’t boring. I was entertained from beginning to end. The only bothersome problem in my opinion was the plot, which should’ve been more cohesive. A better outfit for the vampire widow could’ve helped to as she looked more like Lois Lane rather than the bride of Dracula.
