COUNT DRACULA REVIEWED

“Count Dracula” is a budget horror movie shot with a stunning cast in Barcelona. While it pales to the lush history of Hammer, Franco finds something new to compete in Euro Horror of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Franco’s Dracula starts old, but grows younger with each feeding. Christopher Lee is less stodgy than in past Dracula films, as he slinks around the Gothic settings with blood red eyes and fangs. While not as overtly sexual as other Franco work, the movie remains as menacing.

At the time, Christopher Lee was wanting to abandon the role of Dracula. However, I could’ve stood to see more films featuring this take. Due to feminine appeal, there’s always been a push to make vampires sexy in popular fiction. When one returns to the vicious undead monster of myth, a true villain is found. That kind of villainy is present throughout this film, so I recommend checking it out.
