I’ve wanted to see this version of Dracula for years, mostly to see Jack Palance’s performance. He did not disappoint. I had read years ago that Gene Colan, the artist for Marvel’s Tomb of Dracula, based the vampire’s likeness on Palance. The result is like seeing that comic book character come to life on the screen. Apparently, Palance turned down future opportunities to play Dracula, which is a shame because he created a Dracula that was both imposing and sympathetic. Giving it four skulls because the pacing is a little slow and the supporting cast is a little bland. Still, worth a watch if you love Hammer horror and the source material.
