Tonight has been a night for Dracula. And you would be amazed (or maybe not) as to how many different film versions there are. We’ve covered a lot of them but there’s still more: case in point, Jess Franco’s Count Dracula from 1970.
The cast beyond Sir Christopher is impressive: Klaus Kinski as Renfield and Herbert Lom as Van Helsing. And the film on the whole is more faithful to the novel–notice this version of Dracula starts off old and gets younger, as opposed to the sauve-from-the-get-go Mr. Lugosi. Definitely worth a viewing. Enjoy!
It’s available in a special edition from MPI on DVD.
