4.0 out of 5 stars TWO PEAS IN A POD 10 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to say I quite enjoyed this double bill, having watched both movies in one sitting. They make a good pairing, as both were written for the screen by Pat Fielder, produced by Jules V.Levy and Arthur Gardner and directed by Paul Landres. Gerald Fried also composed the music for them. Having been released in 1958 and 1957 respectively, they are not full of blood and gore, but rely more on characterisation and a well-told story.
'The Return Of Dracula' ( aka 'The Curse Of Dracula' ) stars Francis Lederer in the title role, who comes to stay with a family in a small American town, posing as their European cousin. His intention , of course, is to make vampires of them. Francis Lederer certainly looks the part and he has the right accent, having been born in Czechoslovakia.
'The Vampire' ( aka 'Mark Of The Vampire' ) stars John Beal as a small-town American physician who rather stupidly swallows some pills entrusted to him by a scientist who has just died in mysterious circumstances. The effect of the pills is to turn him into a blood-sucking vampire who kills his victims at night. The storyline is really more Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde than Dracula. The excellent Kenneth Tobey plays the town sheriff.
These movies are in black and white and in widescreen. The quality is superb.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent print. 13 Sep 2008
By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It really is one of the best monochrome transfers from films of this period (the mid-late 50's) that I've seen. It is very sharp throughout on both these films. Subtitles are also provided. They both have the same writer/director/producer team.

The Return Of Dracula had, or has, a certain cachet, not quite cult, but a fond respect ffrom horror movie fans. Unfortunately it hasn't worn very well and, while for the period it was moderately chilling, it now seems stiff and mannered. I've also come to hate (the portrayal of) 50's teens in these horror movies with a vengeance. I'm surprised the kids at the time didn't burn down the cinema for the patronising way in which they were presented (unless American teens really were like that).

The Vampire is pretty tame and everyone in the cast behaves with remarkable stupidity when it's blatantly obvious who the killer is.

Still, what a great transfer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two good old spookies for the price of one. 16 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are into the old black and white horror's you should enjoy watching these two films.
They are not scary as such but good little films to curl up in bed with the lights out. They are not as good as the best of the old Hammer films or the great Universal's but still worth a watch and to add to your collection. They are both very clear prints with no scratches or sound loss, Good acting performances and different slants on the Dracula and Vampire films.
