Cast: Jack Palance, Simon Ward, Nigel Davenport, Pamela Brown, Fiona Lewis
nice classic interpretation featuring a keen performance by Jack Palance in the title role. this is one of only a couple of Dracula films that tie the lead character in with the real life Vlad Țepeș.
I love anything that Dan Curtis did. This did not disappoint. Well worth the watch
Though it's a bit rough on the pacing, there's some quality cheesiness in this adaptation—particularly Jack Palance's performance. The ending is a bit...limp. It's a good watch if you feel like getting the giggles.
Faithful if plodding adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic by Dan "Dark Shadows" Curtis. Although boasting a script by Richard Matheson of "The Twilight Zone" fame, the film itself is rather "bloodless" and just seems to stroll until the conclusion.
I love it.. I can see a lot of Dark Shadows in this movie!!!!
