This fan favorite three-part series from the BBC is now available on DVD for the first time! Louis Jourdan stars as the deliciously blood-thirsty Count Dracula in this version of Bram Stoker's horror classic. Keeping close to the original novel, the series begins with Jonathan Harker visiting the Count in Transylvania to help him with preparations to move to England. It is in the Count's castle that Jonathan becomes a prisoner, and discovers Dracula's true nature. Many scenes shot on location -- such as the Gothic graveyard of London's Highgate Cemetery -- add extra atmosphere to an already powerful production.

"...closer to the novel than any depictions before or since...very worth watching if you're a fan of the book.  Charity Bishop, Charity's Place

Editor's Note
This 1970s version of Bram Stoker's horror masterpiece originally aired as a three-part series on the BBC and is a classic adaptation of a story that captures the imagination of every generation. French character actor Louis Jordon stars as the charming bloodsucking count in this interpretation that thrilled British fans when it originally aired on Halloween night. It's a perfect addition to the body of work that captures Stoker's original vision of a lonely count living high up in his castle, with a taste for blood.

Professional Reviews

Charity's Place 8 of 10
Though there have been numerous vampire stories, from LeFanu's chilling Carmilla to Joss Whedon's empathetic, tormented Angel, it is Bram Stoker's novel that stands above the rest in our memory. He put a name on vampirism, a name that has withstood the test of time and endured through countless film adaptations. This Masterpiece Theatre production is closer to the novel than any depictions before or since...Some scenes really shine, such as Dracula meeting with Quincy and Van Helsing in the castle. Jourdan is an impressive presence on screen, beautifully laid back and intensely frightening in his deliberate actions...The filmmakers also chose to go with moody, campy special effects that ruined the intensity of its best scenes, and whoever did the sound should be shot. The eerie echoes and dream-like sequences don't add anything to the moody atmosphere. It could have been improved by eliminating those issues, but is very worth watching if you're a fan of the book. - Charity Bishop
