Count Dracula (1977) (DVD)
This Dracula fans' favourite, three-part series from the BBC appears on DVD for the first time. Louis Jourdan stars as the deliciously blood-thirsty Count Dracula in this version of Bram Stoker's horror classic. Keeping close to the original novel, the series begins with Jonathan Harker visiting the Count in Transylvania to help him with preparations to move to England. In the Count's castle, Jonathan becomes a prisoner, and discovers Dracula's true nature and so the age-old vampiric tale unfolds... Many scenes shot on location -- such as the Gothic graveyard of London's Highgate Cemetery -- add extra atmosphere to an already powerful production. Synopsis Regarded as one of the best adaptations of the classic Bram Stoker tale, Count Dracula benefits from a critically acclaimed performance from Louis Jourdan as the title character. A cult classic from the seventies, the film faithfully recreates Stoker's characters and prose.
