"Drac Goes West"

Films: Billy the Kids Vs. Dracula (1966)

Alias: James Underhill

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: If you thought a cowboy going up against a progeny of Frankenstein was weird, how about a famous outlaw coming into conflict with the lord of Vampires himself! And to think, these films were made in the same year with the same agenda...

History: Seeking new ways to terrify the masses, Count Dracula came to the west under the guise of Uncle James Underhill. Seeing how the place was in no shortage of young maidens to drink the blood from, he set his sights on just one. However, retired gunslinger Billy the Kid isn't going to let him get away with it anytime soon.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Confronted in a mine-shaft with his coffin and victim, Dracula and Billy face off...and it ends with the latter chucking his gun at the Vampire's head. Knocking him unconscious. Then Billy stakes him with a kitchen knife. Wow. For a moment, we thought this would amount to something substa-no, wait, we did not.

Powers/Abilities: Immune to bullets and able to turn into a bat.

Weakness: Getting stabbed in the heart, holy objects, and apparently, blunt objects.

Scariness Factor: 1.5-Dracula is Dracula, but this is just ridiculous. He looks like a discount Vincent Price (he is played by John Carradine, after all), his bat form would make the Devil Bat cringe in embarrassment, and he got beat by chucking something at his head! He even stumbles like an idiot when the latter happens!

Trivia: -William "Billy the Kid" Bonney was a real-life character, but he was more of a war criminal during New Mexico's Lincoln Country War. He was on the side of the Regulators, even if the war made fugitives out of almost all of them.

-Like the movie with Jesse James, this film was done in 8 days.

An evil demon and a riteous demon.
Dracula's real main advantage: that nice hat.
Better than the other tagline: "Down for the Count". I wish I was making that up.
