"I am Count Dracula."
12 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a nice little documentary (included on the recent re-release of "Dracula" on DVD) that walks us through the basic process of filming. The best interviews are with Frank Langella and the director, both of which show a lot of enthusiasm for the project. There's a lot of focus on Langella's earlier stint on Broadway in the role, but it also delves into the performances by the supporting and leading actors. They talk about the casting and how it took them all by surprise, some of the more difficult shooting days, the eternal war raged between Langella and the studio over whether or not his infamous Count would bare fangs and drool blood (you can guess who won that round, if you've seen the film), and the disappointment when the film failed to do well at the box office, thanks to a summer season accustomed to laughing at vampires.

You'll learn what Langella hates most about the movie (I'll give you a clue: it's what every woman swoons over), be walked through numerous little details that give the film class (ever wonder who chose the perfect height for that cape collar?), and draw the same conclusion that I did: it was a very nicely done little production that pays homage to a fantastic film.
