Loved the mood, Loved the sets, good actors BUT, it only takes one bad apple to ruin something potentially great...Jack Palance could not convince as Dracula and the bad acting on top of it just ruined the movie! This could've been a 5 without him!
I found this a genuine treat--I've wanted to see this Dan Curtis production for years. Nice atmospherics.
This film is a torture device.
I love the 90's version of Dracula, and also Dracula Untold, so in comparison to both of those movies... this one was majorly lacking. I think for the time period it came out though, it was not horrible, just not comparable to other Dracula movies.
This is a decent version to start watching with your kids that is fairly faithful to the novel. Good acting and interesting settings. It does leave out about half the book, so it does not compare to the 1990's version.
