Christopher Lee had often expressed his displeasure at Hammer's treatment of the original Dracula and anounced he wanted to do a definitive version that was faithful to the book. In 1969 he found a willing partner in Jess Franco. The end result here on sale turned out to be a flop and Lee ended up back at Hammer doing more sequels. The first half is a pretty close adaption of the book retold in labourious fashion. The second half seems like it was shot in a panic as the director desperately tried to get it all in the can.
That isn't to say the film isn't without merit, it has some wonderful performances, Lee gives his all as the Count and is given much more to do than in his Hammer versions. Klaus Kinski steals the show as the throughly demented Renfield and Soledad Miranda as the ill-fated Lucy.
The pacing of the film is like a yo-yo, it goes from atmospheric to sluggish within the first hour with some memrorable moments sticking out. Give it a chance, to me its a flawed gem!

Format: DVD
Christopher Lee is arguably the best Dracula that has ever been committed to celluloid -- but you gotta admit that Hammer Horror didn't put him to the best use.

Far better use is made of Lee in "Jess Franco's Count Dracula," a gothic horror movie that tries its darndest to stay true to the original novel. It's only partially successful -- Lee is utterly brilliant and the haunting atmosphere is suitable for a tale of vampiric infiltration, but the last act is painfully rushed and flat.

You know the drill: Real estate agent Jonathan Harker (Fred Williams) arrives in Transylvania, to arrange a London house sale to the charming, mysterious Count Dracula (Lee). But Harker is increasingly troubled by bizarre specters and Dracula's odd behavior, leading him to believe that Dracula is not actually human.

After escaping, he's brought to Professor Van Helsing's clinic (Herbert Lom), while his fiancee Mina (Maria Rohm) and her friend Lucy (Soledad Miranda) come to visit him. But soon Dracula starts luring and drinking from Lucy in the night, until she inevitably dies despite Van Helsing's best efforts. Of course, soon she's back and sucking the blood of small children.

So Van Helsing launches a full-out attack on Count Dracula, first taking Jonathan and Quincey (Jack Taylor) to destroy Lucy before anyone else can be harmed. But Dracula has set his sights on Mina now -- and to save her, Jonathan and Quincey must destroy him first.

This was pretty clearly a work of love for Jess Franco, creator of many a softcore Euromovie (including "Vampyros Lesbos").

20 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. L. Marshall on 14 Mar. 2007
Format: DVD
In this movie, Franco set out to make the first truly faithful adaptation of Stoker's work. The early castle scenes do just that. It's a treat to get Christopher Lee delivering great chunks of Stoker's original dialogue, word for word, while dressed and made up much more in line with Stoker's description than previous films had attempted. Sadly, halfway through the movie Franco obviously realised that at this rate the movie would be about 4 hours long, and would cost a fortune, so he had to botch together a hastily-compiled second half that departs from Stoker's text. Nevertheless, it's not terrible, thanks to Herbert Lom and Klaus Kinski's excellent turn as Renfield. Ultimately, this movie is an example of what could have been. All I can do is wish that Franco had had Coppola's budget, then we might genuinely have seen Bram Stoker's Dracula. But still well worth watching.

Good to see Chrissy Lee allowed to do a more faithful Bram Stoker version of the Dracula story.
Interesting and well done, I would recommend this film to all Christopher Lee fans. :)
