Films: Dracula's Dog (1977)
Location: Civilized area/Forest
Height/Weight: That of an average doberman.
Summary: Getting really tired of these trite vampires. We need something to shake up the formula. How about giving the vamp treatment to man's best friend! It's genius!
History: Zoltan wasn't always the mad Doberman pinscher serving under the lord of the vampires. He was once a dog living in an inn who stopped Dracula from claiming a victim. The enraged vampire bit the dog in retaliation, causing the dog to go rogue and turn his owner into a vampire. Zoltan's rampage ended when someone staked him, but centuries later, some dingus accidentally uncovered his coffin. After having the stake removed from his corpse, Zoltan sprung to life. Pretty soon, he and his vampire owner were at a forest, stalking a the last of Dracula's descendants, and turning the local dogs into vampires themselves.
Notable Kills: Zoltan isn't above killing puppies. Not cool.
Final Fate: Ironically, it is Dracula's last descendant that defeats Zoltan. He shows the hound a cross, causing Zoltan to stumble off a cliff and get impaled through the heart on a metal fence. His minions are also killed, but a vampirized puppy survives.
Powers/Abilities: Can turn both man and dog into vampires with a bite.
Weakness: Standard vampire weaknesses.
Scariness Factor: 4-While the scenes where he bites things are a joke, there's no denying that Zoltan's pretty freaky. An emancipated Doberman as dark as night, it's hard to feel a bit insecure when his snarling face and glowing eyes are aimed right at you.
Trivia: -This film is also known as "Zoltan, Hound of Dracula".
-The Doberman is a very popular dog breed. It was also once specifically bred to be as fearless and fearsome as possible for guarding purposes. Over the years though, these traits have been toned down so that they make good pets.
