Review of Franco's COUNT DRACULA DVD
I'm definitely a fan of Jess Franco's faithful adaptation of Bram Stoker's DRACULA which came to the screen in the late 1960s as COUNT DRACULA with Christopher Lee returning to the title role he portrayed in so many Hammer adaptations and Klaus Kinski as Renfield. As I reported back in 2006, Dark Sky Films is finally bringing this Franco flick to DVD with a new transfer (sure to be an improvement on the crappy VHS versions I've watched over the years) and some nice extras including an interview with the famed director. DVD Talk recently posted a lengthy review of the film, its elements and extras and gives it a nice write-up.
