After a coffin is delivered to a sleepy little Japanese town, one of the locals discovers that its occupant isn't dead yet. Unfortunately, the only witness to the vampire invasion gets bitten, along with several other people in town. Only one woman, Akiko, knows the truth, but even she doubts what she is seeing. Can the village be saved before it's too late?

The second in Michio Yamamoto's intriguing Toho vampire trilogy is arguably the most European of the lot. What makes this Dracula tale of curiosity value, is that there's virtually nothing remotely Japanese about the film save for the cast. It's as if Yamamoto was paying homage to the traditional vampire films from Europe and America. The movie does in fact link the Transylvanian Count to the Japanese setting in a move not unlike the one seen in the Hammer/Shaw Brothers co-production from a few years later. The story concerns a young woman having recurring nightmares in which she encounters a vampire after wandering into an ominous abode. Soon, bizarre deaths take place after a coffin is delivered to a house near Lake Fujimi and it becomes apparent the young woman may be a potential victim. Also known as JAPULA(!), Shin Kishida is imposing as the villainous vampire. He will be recognizable to fans from Toho's GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA (1974). The other two films in this series are THE VAMPIRE DOLL (1970) and EVIL OF DRACULA (1974), which resembles the European lesbian vampire films.
