Movie Info

This doggedly faithful adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel about a vampiric nobleman was helmed by cult director Jesus Franco. Despite its textual loyalty and atmospheric photography by Manuel Merino, the film -- a co-production from Spain, Italy, Germany, and Liechtenstein -- is plodding and dull.

Audience Reviews for Count Dracula


I love seeing Lee playing Dracula, even if it's been done to death, literally! Still, this is a good more modern version of the film, not that it's the best, it could have been better, but it's entertaining anyway.

A gorgeous, gorgeous film with gorgeous, gorgeous people and plenty of unintentionally hilarious scenes.

This film has one of the best soundtracks in the history of cinema, mainly thanks to the mesmerising metallic guitar sound that echoes almost like an out-of-tune cembalo or kantele.
