Give up? Well, for starters, he's now known as Count Adrian (Des Roberts) and, sporting a Van Dyke and a bad Bela accent, he and a bunch of motley ghouls run "Dracula's Dungeon", a bizzare Hollywood nightspot. When actor Guy (John Landon) and his girlfriend Angelica (Claudia Barron) show up at the club, Drac decides he wants Angelica for all eternity - meaning he's got to bite her three times for her to be properly vampirized. After a brief tussle with another vampire named Imp (Frank Donato), who is quickly consigned to a cage, Drac gives Angelica two separate neck gnaws and she's soon eating raw meat, averting daylight, and reacting to crosses. All of which disturbs boyfriend Guy who, despite promising her to Drac in exchange for an acting career, challenges the vampire after a special "Macumba Ritual" in which a crazed dancer eats a live lizard and screams "I have eaten the lizard! I love the lizard!"
