Our Ranking

short review:

This film is highly recommended for every fan of Bram Stoker's novel ! OK, it has some minor flaws - it is obviously a TV production and parts were filmed on tape; Louis Jordan, although giving a good performance, is no match for Max Schreck or some others - but the deviations from the book are few and insignificant. This movie is perhaps the best and most faithful adaption of the novel so far ! For once not just the horror, but also the senusality of the Dracula story was transferred to the screen. If you've read the book, you shouldn't miss this one.
