Andy Warhols Dracula - Paul Morrissey

Morrissey, Paul
Andy Warhols Dracula.
[Germany], 1974.
A1 film poster (83 x 58 cm.). Printed offset, with deep saturated colours. Creases from previous folding, with some wear and stress to centre. 

Encouraged to venture to Italy by Roman Polanski to create sexually-explicit monster films in 3D, Paul Morrissey convinced Carlo Ponti to produce two such films starring Joe Dallesandro and Udo Kier: Flesh for Frankenstein (1973) and Blood for Dracula (1974). In the latter, Dracula sets his sights on pre-Mussolini Italy, thinking it a good bet to find virgin blood in a Catholic country; disappointment ensues. Both films received their initial releases in Germany, where the Pop-styled posters attempted to cash-in on the Warhol association, reworking the films’ titles to Andy Warhols Dracula and Andy Warhols Frankenstein.
