That Sucking Sound: 1970s Sons of Satan

Homosexuality, implied as a strong undercurrent within classic Hollywood vampire horror films (and literature for that matter), is well established in media history.  The comparable symbolism between the horror movie genre of vampires (sucking and swallowing the life's blood from their selected male human) and real-life sex performed on upon a male cock (sucking and swallowing his life-producing sperm) has not been lost on generations of literature and human sexuality professionals.  A transfer of bodily fluids is happening in both situations.  A dominance between males is happening in both situations.  A forbidden attraction is going on.  

In 1897, the best known vampire book, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, was published. Hugely popular in the U.S., it had been adapted for both stage and screen by the 1920s. The first vampire films were actually made by the French in the 1890s. By the 1920s, the Germans had produced Nosferatu, and in 1931 Hollywood jumped into the mix with Tod Browning’s Dracula.  This 1973 sex flick remains culturally significant because it is often recognized as being the first gay vampire porn movie ever produced, even if the production values are somewhat limited.  Before going to to make making mainstream horror movies such as Hell Night, Tom De Simone was a pioneering gay porn filmmaker in 1970s who often worked under the name "Lancer Brooks" (although there are no credits to this smut film).
 





The most fun is watching the main character's shirt button and unbutton itself in each scene.  Handsome Jonathan Trent goes in search of his missing brother Clark in this vampire horror/gay sex movie.  So where does he look for his brother?  Naturally, at the spooky old mansion that is occupied by the mysterious Mr. Natas and his collection of hot male servants.  But our blonde hero doesn't get anywhere after the servants open the doors.  Jonathan has a sneaky hunch that something is going on inside that house, and that his brother may be involved, and he's right!  We the audience get to discover that his brother Clark is indeed inside the mansion (of course) and he's preparing for the "hour of exchange" when dicks meet throats, resulting in a fancy silver cup being filled with sperm from all the servant dudes. They deliver their cum cocktail to the naked vampire Mr. Natas.  Both blood and seamen are the fluids of human life and it turns out that this vampire likes 'em both. 
Our hero Jonathan sneaks back into the house and discovers his brother in a bedroom after being freshly milked for his sperm and freshly-screwed by the vampire Natas.  The thought of his poor brother taking a vampire's nasty dick in his rear is enough to get Johnny really upset!  Only suddenly, Johnny has himself to worry about, as they capture him.  Johnny gets some classic 1970's bondage treatment before the Sons of Satan inititate him into the "hour of exchange" cock sucking and to his horror--his brother is one of them!  After they fill the silver cup, Natas arrives and then promptly gives Johnny a good screw.  SPOILER ALERT! The last scene is a delivery guy who arrives at the old house and the door is opened by---converted servant/slave Johnny!
The Sons of Satan script is so darn bad that it's fun. Their plastic vampire teeth appear to be the Halloween costume type that stores sell three-to-a-pack (back then they were dime stores and today at dollar stores) and the actors have a problem keeping the fangs in place.  Aside from classic 1970's men having sex with one another, this movie doesn't really have anything going for it, other than it was directed by Tom De Simone.  As already mentioned, he went on to make mainstream movies like 1981's Hell Night. The actors are Ned Burke, Carl Ford, Bill North, Lee LeMay and Tom Paine.  Most of this cast had already worked together in the 1972 gay smut film Chained, which was also directed by Simone (using the name Lancer Brooks).
