The Empire of Dracula (Spanish: El imperio de Drácula) is a 1967 Mexican horror mystery thriller film directed by Federico Curiel and starring Lucha Villa, César del Campo and Eric del Castillo.[1][2]

It was influenced by Hammer Horror films.[3] It is one of several vampire movies made in Mexico in the 1960s, alongside Miguel Morayta's duology The Bloody Vampire (1962) and The Invasion of the Vampires (1963).[4]


A man searches for the vampire who killed his father to prevent him from coming back to life, but to do so he must fight his army of beautiful female vampires, who lure men to their estate so they can feed on their blood.



In El gran libro del vampiro ("The great book of the vampire"), Alexis Puig said, "There is a lot of eroticism, especially lesbian: female vampires biting female victims;" and highlighted a scene in which the count must fight inside his own coffin with a man carrying a crucifix as a "very dramatic scene."[5]
