Director: Philip Saville
Summary: Based on the book Dracula by Bram Stoker Jonathon Harker heads to Romania to help a Count Dracula with his preparations to move to London. Soon he is held captive while the Count makes his way to England to ensnare Harker's fiancee and her sister. It's up to Dr. Van Helsing to figure out how kill Count Dracula and save Harker's fiancee!
Review: I was actually pleasantly surprised by this adaptation! It was creepy in all the right places and Dracula was pretty 'oogie.' I recently played the computer game Dracula that was also based on the novel by Bram Stoker so I was able to follow along pretty well. This definitely portrayed the sensual/sexual side to vampires; I can see why many would choose to become vamps! It was filmed in 1977 so it does have a bit of cheese factor to it, but overall I thought it was done pretty well. I'm not much up for a lot horrific gore so I was glad that they kept it down to a minimum. A very enjoyable movie for the Halloween season!
