A TASTE OF BLOOD is a moody mid-career vampire tale from cult director H.G. Lewis (THE WIZARD OF GORE, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS!) who also turns in an amusing cameo as a British seaman. John Stone (Bill Rogers), a mild American businessman, receives an odd inheritance in the mail: two bottles of ancient brandy which, unknown to Stone, also contain the blood of his ancestor Count Dracula! Despite the foreboding of his wife Helene (Elizabeth Wilkinson), John drinks the brandy and sure enough, slowly turns into a pasty-faced vampire. Worse, besides his thirst for neck slurping, he seeks revenge against the ancestors of those who killed the vampire king.
