blood for dracula and mp and the holy grail

has anyone seen Blood for Dracula (Andy Warhol's Dracula)? is it an odd coincidence that this came out the year before (1974) Monty Python and the Holy Grail and includes a very similar limb-by-limb dismemberment scene??? has anyone from Python ever mentioned if they got the idea for the Black Knight from Warhol's flick? I had always thought that the Black Knight was really original, but now I wonder if it was taken from the other movie....

I think it's just a coincidence. On the commentary track for Holy Grail, Cleese tells a funny story about an ancient wresteling match and the Black Knight scene being an extension of that.
