5.0 out of 5 stars Why is this book out of print?, 14 July 2004
This review is from: Anno Dracula (Paperback)
I bought Kim Newman's book 'Dracula Cha Cha Cha' a couple of years ago, and enjoyed it so much I resolved to buy the other books in the series. However, they appear to be out of print, and 'Anno Dracula' was only available through Amazon's (excellent) second hand book sales facility.
I was delighted when the book arrived, and the book itself lived up to my anticipation. There are so many literary and historical allusions to the era (1880s / 1890s )and part of the fun is seeing how many you know or can understand. They add to rather than detract from the excellent story telling.
This book should really be reissued.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dracula - as Stoker may have envisaged it filmed, 17 May 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Who would have thought that the medium of dance, in particular ballet, would provide one of the best ever interpretations of Bram Stoker's novel, 'Dracula'?
This wonderful movie is shot in a style reminiscent of the earliest movies, and is nearly all in black and white, with only blood and money given colour, red and green respectively. The sound is provided by classical music, with the occasional 'real' sound effect.
The action itself is on a large stage with a dreamy, romantic set, and the dancing itself is wonderful. The story is well told, without unnecessary detail added, and the male lead is full of charisma, as all 'Dracula's should be, in order that the seductiveness of his evil charm can be apparent.
If I could give 10 stars to this movie, I would.
