Count Dracula is a British television adaptation of the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. Produced by the BBC, it first aired on BBC 2 on 22 December 1977. It is among the more faithful of the many adaptations of the original book. Directed by Philip Saville, it starred Louis Jourdan as Count Dracula and Frank Finlay as Van Helsing.
I remember watching this sequel to Night of the Living Dead back in 1978.
An old man dies in his shack while performing satanic rites. Shortly afterward, a strange man shows up claiming to be the old man’s nephew. When he moves in, strange things begin to happen, like a man being attacked by his own dog.
A group of strangers are brought together in a haunted house and must contend with murder and $50,000 in stolen money. George Zucco as Amos Bradford aka The Black Raven.
It’s got bikini clad 1960’s babes. It’s got a monster that eats surfers. Yep. It’s that good.
The film tells the story of a psychiatrist, Dr. Cross, (Vincent Price), who is treating a young woman, Janet Stewart (Anabel Shaw), who is in a coma-state, brought on when she heard loud arguing, went to her window and saw a man strike his wife with a candlestick and kill her. It also stars Lynn Bari as Dr. Cross’s nurse/lover, Elaine Jordan.
