This review is from: Dracula A.D. 1972 [DVD] (DVD)
I remember seeing this when we were up in Leicester on a double glazing convention at the Holiday Inn in 1973. It was on as a double bill with Theatre of Blood at the Cinecentre (a sub-porno cinema with a lush bar) that was handy for the bookies, working girls and all-night blues dances. The film is a successful portrayal of the hippie ideology: sex drugs and Satanism. Only ‘Gimmie Shelter’ runs a close second in debunking the peace and love myth.

Stephanie Beecham is outstanding in the lead role and the highlight of the film as it reaches its climax is when Van Helsing painstakingly discovers that Mr ALUCARD may indeed be a wrong un.

Speaking of Leicester, this was the setting of the marvellous 1980s ‘Connie’ starring the glamorous Ms Beecham in a Dallas meets the midlands rag trade drama. It was supposed to be set in Nottingham but I recognised those Leicester bookies, boozers and red light districts. I still dig out my old VHS copy when the lady wife is away and Stephanie never fails to please.

Dorothy, (the good lady wife) cannot bear horror films (apart from Salon Kitty) so I watched this DVD sharing our black leather sofa with the voluptuous Marjorie from next door. Needless to say the mix of dolly birds and Lees’ erotic charge got us going and one thing led to another. So Marjorie and I had an early night.
