Dario Argento does Hammer!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dracula Di Dario Argento (Blu-ray)
I admire Dario Argento's work, although I wouldn't class myself as a fan, so I was keen to see what he would do with Dracula, of which I'm a huge fan; I was extremely impressed!
The story is loosely based on Hammer's Horror of Dracula, where Jonathan Harker arrives at Castle Dracula to take up the role of librarian. From this premise, the story takes its own direction. As you can imagine, there is gore but not a huge amount. The main protagonists are portrayed in a completely new light from any other adaption I have seen before.
The movie is Italian and can be viewed dubbed. The actors are obviously saying the dialogue in English, but the soundtrack is lip synched. However, the movie is so well made (as you would expect from its Director) that this does not take away from its enjoyment; this is one of my favorite takes on the character.
I would strongly recommend this movie to any fan of the source material; it is a movie I will revisit time and again.
