OK, but cheaply distributed EP-mode documentary.
8 May 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

Although the video is of substandard quality, a LOT of people are interviewed in this accurate and entertaining 60-minute documentary on vampire films hosted by genre great Christopher Lee. It covers classics like NOSFERATU and Dracula and Hammer films up to BRAM STOKER'S Dracula and even manages to throw in some clips from PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE!

Here's some of what you get for your money:

Rare screen tests from the original Dracula are shown and it's revealed (again) that the simultaneously shot Spanish-language version used the same sets and even some long shots of star Bela Lugosi (who is also shown dead in real-life, buried in his cape...a fitfully disturbing image!).

Many interviews--Freddie Francis says Dracula HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE "pigeonholed" him in the horror genre the rest of his career. Roy Ward Baker describes how the end result of THE VAMPIRE LOVERS made him "crawl under" his seat, Caroline Munro humorously describes how she "compromised" her way out of doing a nude scene for director Brian Clemens in CAPTAIN KRONOS and Dick Miller claims Paul Birch was replaced by a double for at least a third of NOT OF THIS EARTH.

Also featured are Raymond Huntley (the "first stage Dracula"), John Carradine, Nina Foch, Peter Cushing, Jimmy Sangster, Abbott and Costello, Veronica Carlson, Ferdy Mayne, Charlton Heston, plus some real "experts" on the field like Fred Olen Ray, Brinke Stevens and Hugh Hefner (!) There are plenty of movie clips, and even some historical facts about Bram Stoker and his supposed influence for the Dracula character, Vlad the Impaler.
