REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., March 13, 2001

This companion piece to Andy Warhol's Frankenstein emphasizes the sexual component of the vampire myth. As the Count, Udo Kier requires virgin blood and goes off to Italy expecting to find a voluminous blood supply in that Catholic land. But times have changed and virgins aren't as easy to come by as they used to be. The Warhol regulars camp it up.
