On the way to their honeymoon, a lusty young couple find themselves kidnapped by their chauffeur and taken to Dracula’s secret layer, to be used in diabolical rites to keep the Count young and virile. When the abducted bride’s parents turn to a local detective for help, the disbelieving cop realizes that he may indeed be facing a real life vampire in sunny Miami. Meanwhile Dracula has set his sights on an attractive young woman who he’s determined to make into his bride.
A completely bonkers erotic horror-comedy, THE BRIDE’S INITIATION (which was shot as THE VAMPIRE but first released as DEMON’S BREW) was produced and directed by the mysterious Emilio Portici as ‘Duncan Stewart.’ Co-starring Carol Connors (EROTIC ADVENTURES OF CANDY) and her husband Jack Birch (father of Thora Birch) as Dracula’s diabolical right hand man, Vinegar Syndrome brings this unclassifiable regional oddity to DVD, newly restored from 35mm vault elements.
