Although rather close to the novel still disappointing.
I enjoyed it
One of the first Dracula films I ever watched and I still enjoy it.
Wow. Just awful. As fan of Kolchak & Dark Shadows, it pains me to say that this is a truly bad version of Dracula. Dan Curtis's version of Bram Stoker's classic novel feels simultaneously condensed into incomprehensibility, and painfully over-extended in running time. At least now I know I don't need to add this to my dvd/bluray collection.
