Dracula in Istanbul???
14 November 2002 | by (Roanoke, Va.) – See all my reviews

I must say I found this movie to be 'cok ilginc' (very interesting!) or verrrrry inetersting as the late, great Vincent Price may have said. I gave it a verrrrry generous 7 out of 10. It is clearly a virtual ripof of Tod Browning's "Dracula," and it does even measure up to Werner Herzog's remake of F.W. Murnau's German classic "Nosferatu." But,as a Turkish-American, I have to thank showtvnet.com for providing this interesting guilty pleasure (sorry no subtitles) which does drag at times, but considering this film was made almost 50 years ago when Turkish film standards were even lower than they were in the 'ala Turka cinema renaissance ' of the '70s (when enormous numbers of bad films were made left and right) this has to be viewed as a noble effort. Along with "SCream Blacula Scream,' and perhaps (I've never seen it) "Billy the Kid Meets Dracula," it has to be one of the more unusual takes on this much-filmed saga.
