The site also reproduces a variety of great posters for the flick, my favorite of which is shown at right. The poster artist(s) definitely tried to take advantage of Kinski's popular portrayal of Nosferatu!
I've definitely changed my opinion on Franco's somewhat faithful adaptation over the years. Originally screened on an old Republic VHS that must have had subliminal messages encoded on it, I gave the flick an enthusiastic thumbs up, even going so far as to call it "moody and successful".
When Dark Sky released EL CONDE DRACULA on DVD back in 2008 I eagerly dove in hoping that the improved presentation would only enhance my enjoyment of the flick. Unfortunately those hopes were dashed and I wrote in my full review:
I’m disappointed that Franco’s ambitious but ultimately unsuccessful adaptation of the Stoker novel didn’t live up to my memory. Though moody and carried by a couple memorable performances, EL CONDE DRACULA has to be considered a failure due to one of the least memorable endings in vampire film history, a Dracula that ends up being surprisingly easy to dispatch, stretches that strain interest not to mention credibility, and a lack of interaction from the best actors involved with the project.Definitely worth checking out for Kinski's memorable, moving performance but don't go in expecting the definitive Dracula adaptation.
