OLD DRACULA

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jan 5, 2020

One of the non-political things trending the most on the internet this week has been the new BBC TV adaptation of DRACULA. I haven't seen any of it yet--from what I've heard about it, I'd probably just be whining and moaning over it. I did happen to view another radical interpretation of Bram Stoke read more

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992, Francis Ford Coppola)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 26, 2019

On one hand, with the Wojciech Kilar score, Bram Stoker’s Dracula can get away with just about anything. On the other, with Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves playing leads… well, it needs something to help it get away with anything. It helps neither Ryder or Reeves are the actual star of the film.

For The Love Of Crap – Dracula Vs Frankenstein (1971)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Oct 25, 2019

I would call Al Adamson’s 1971 movie Dracula vs Frankenstein a guilty pleasure, but the truth is, I really don’t feel that guilty about loving it. No, I’m not going to try to make the case that DvF belongs in the horror flick pantheon alongside such movies as Universal’s orig read more

DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS On Blu-ray From Shout Factory

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Dec 26, 2018

I got quite excited when I found out earlier this year that Shout Factory was planning on releasing a number of Hammer Films horror titles on Blu-ray. My enthusiasm was tempered a bit when it was announced that DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS was going to be the first in the series. Nothing against the m read more

HORROR OF DRACULA On Blu-ray From Warner Archive

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Dec 19, 2018

The Region A Blu-ray debut of the most famous Hammer film of all time has already stirred up a fair amount of controversy--so much so that I've debated on whether I should even write this blog post at all. Instead of going into the history and/or the importance of the film, I'll get right to the po read more

On Blu-ray: Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing in Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Nov 20, 2018

It must have been shocking for the period piece-adoring Hammer crowd to behold the hairy, groovy hippies dancing on pianos and making love under the dining room table in Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972). While there is the presence of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing to provide a reassuring bridge to the p read more

DRACULA A.D. 1972 On Blu-ray From Warner Archive

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day Jr. on Oct 20, 2018

The Warner Archive Collection made a lot of fanboys happy when it was announced they would be releasing DRACULA A.D. 1972 and THE SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA on Region A Blu-ray. THE SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA disc has been delayed to November, but DRACULA A.D. 1972 is available now. With DRACULA A.D. 1 read more

Classic Films in Focus: THE BRIDES OF DRACULA (1960)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jan 8, 2018

Peter Cushing returns to the role of Doctor Van Helsing for this sequel to Hammer's 1958 reinvention of the Dracula story, but, in spite of the title, Dracula never actually appears. Instead, Van Helsing combats a new undead menace and the relentless obstacle of the doctor's own terrible timing, whi read more

Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary (2002, Guy Maddin)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Oct 20, 2017

To put it mildly, Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary is narratively erratic. The film–a filmed ballet “converted” to a silent movie–opens with panic over Eastern Europeans entering Britain. At least, the onscreen text implies this panic. It’s quickly forgotten; after doing cast introductions read more

The Making of the Spanish Language Version of Dracula (1931)

Old Hollywood Films Posted by Amanda Garrett on Oct 17, 2017

Today, I'm writing about the making of the Spanish language version of the horror classic, Dracula (1931). The film stars Carlos Villarias as Count Dracula and Lupita Tovar as his beautiful victim. This article is part of Hollywood's Hispanic Heritage Blogathon 2017 hosted by Once Upon a Screen.& read more

The Houses of Frankenstein and Dracula

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jun 8, 2017

The trailer promised a lot! House of Frankenstein (1944). The inevitable follow-up to Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1942) adds Count Dracula, a mad scientist, and a lovesick, hunchbacked assistant to the mix. The result is a somewhat clunky affair that still has its minor pleasures. Boris Karlo read more

Son of Dracula: "Don't say that word. We don't like it."

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Feb 23, 2017

Yes, Alucard spelled backward is.... Universal's best 1940s fright film was a rare collaboration between brothers Robert and Curt Siodmak. Robert, who directed, injects his noir sensibilities into the horror genre. He makes Son of Dracula a visually and thematically dark picture with a downbeat end read more
