Good vampire story but I am, like I suspect a lot of people, addicted to the Sir Christopher Lee portrayals of vampires!

Werner Herzog's Nosferatu is true to the book. Very well made. A classic vampire story. it has been seen at every Halloween party we have had.

A very classic gothic horror which is, of course a love story. Very atmospheric and stylish: Kind of thing you'd like or not.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 13 March 2017
The story of Dracula is well known and the film sticks to it well enough for any review not to need to go into it. What is interesting is how each film version portrays it.

The first thing that struck me about this one is that like many costume dramas it instantly says more about the period it was made than the one it was set in. This screams 1970s from the word go and style wise reminded me of Hammer Horror. Some of the camera work at the start was also a bit Acorn Antiques - the best example being just before Jonathan leaves for Transylvania when half the shot is taken up by the huge rump of his horse. Most of the time the acting is as wooden as a big wooden stake dipped in bright red paint (there's one of those too). The characters say what they are thinking out loud just to explain what is happening. I giggled a lot when it wasn't supposed to be funny.

What I was impressed with, as the film progressed, was that after the initial wobbles, the camera work really improves. The locations and interiors feel real rather than studio set. It uses imagery and lighting to great effect to portray the poignant side of the story which is about sacrifice for love. There is also an argument for saying it goes against the trend of the times by having the passive seeming woman in peril, Lucy make a rather noble sacrifice for her husband.

If half stars were an option I would give this film three and a half, but have rounded to four as the great visuals outweigh the staginess of the acting.
