The descendant of Elizabeth Bathory is abducted by a cult of self-proclaimed supermen who achieve this state of superiority by drinking from the "blood cows" (read: people) kept at the "dairy farm", and they try to get her to join them.
In the near future, a teenage couple are trapped in a drive-in theater which has become a concentration camp for social outcasts. The inmates are treated to drugs, exploitation films, junk food, and new wave music.
A modern-day politician is faced with an incomprehensible in this mystical-fantasy. Senator Rast is a very powerful man. But his is nothing compared to the extraordinary power of the enigmatic stranger who mysteriously comes to "visit" him. Possessing uncanny magical prowess and miraculous psychic abilities, the peculiar, but seemingly benevolent, visitor quickly gains a spell-binding hold over the senator and his family. But a power-lusting political backer is also vying for control over the up-and-coming senator. And he would kill the influential stranger, without question, for that power. But he and the senator are about to be enlightened.Written by

The Rast family in this movie are named after the last Romanov family of the House of Romanov, the last imperial dynasty of Russia. The Rast surname is Tsar spelled backwards. Nick Rast (David Hemmings) is named after Czar Nicholas II (Nikolay II, Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov). His wife, Sandra Rast (Carmen Duncan), is named after the spouse of Nicholas II, Alexandra Feodorovna Romanov (Alix of Hesse aka Victoria Alix Helena Louise Beatrice). Their son, Alex Rast (Mark Spain is named after their heir apparent, Alexei Nikolaevich, Tsarevich of Russia. Alas, the names Nick, Sandra and Alex substitute for Nicholas, Alexandra and Alexei respectively. See more »
I saw this film in my youth and after years of searching for it, finally taped it off the telly. Robert Powel is exceptional as the title character as is David Hemmings as the senator. There are a few films out there that can just bewitch you as you're watching them, The Wickerman being the best example, but this one comes very close. If you see this little gem airing on your TV in the wee small hours I urge you to tape it.
