Queen of Blood

Take a couple of small time actors (Dennis Hopper and John Saxon), a "washed up" star (Basil Rathbone) and special effects scenes from not one but two Soviet sci-fi productions, throw in a blacklisted Czech actress in weird makeup and publicize through FAMOUS MONSTERS magazine and you've got the recipe for QUEEN OF BLOOD, a surprisingly effective film from early '66! Note that there was even a novelization which was published by Greenleaf Classics, a company known for sleazy porn novels, and it actually featured an intro from FM's Forrest J. Ackerman.
