Drácula (Dracula, Spanish Version) Reviews
I Like Horror Movies
Forgotten but wait now your probably at this film like oh it's just Dracula in Spanish but its not Dracula and renifeild are found to be terrifying the only reason to watch
This film is because of the cast
Let me give you a little background on the movie: When the original Dracula (the English version) was being filmed the studio decided that it would be a great idea to film a second version with an all Spanish speaking cast. The English version went on to get all of the fame, money, and girls. The Spanish version was left by the wayside, but the Spanish version of Dracula is much better in many respects. The movie had a lower budget and had to make up for the lack of "great" special effects with superior acting. The movie makes little tweaks here and there but is essentially the same story.
The movie's main focus is on the character Conde Dracula. Say that with me class, Con-de. Other characters went through a similar ethnic name change process as well including Juan Harker and Eva Seward. Dr. Van Helsing stayed the same though. I urge you not to dismiss this movie just because it is a forigen film; its not in English and they changed the names of some of the most well known characters in Gothic horror, but its still a fantastic film.
Its a wonder why they didn't just go ahead and dub over the original English version. It seems to me that they could of saved a lot of money that way. However, they did a great job and parts of this film surpass its English counterpart. Dracula gets a 8 out of 10 from me. The movie hits all of the right spots.
I felt very weak as if I had lost my virginity.
