Another nonsensical Dracula story
17 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dracula's name was really dragged through the mud in the 1980s by American producers, wasn't it? Here's another silly story that does a massive disservice to the ferocious creature of the Bram Stoker novel, instead presenting him as a lovable, blood-drinking grandfather figure. They could have picked worse actors to play him than Roy Dotrice, but the way the character is written is still a disappointment.

The tale involves an obnoxious writer who finds himself stuck for inspiration, so he strikes a deal with the Count: he'll give the vampire bed and board in return for access to the vampire's 900 year-old stories. Inevitably things go wrong, with various characters double crossing one another, and there's a woman with an annoying Cockney accent thrown into the mix. As usual, the spoofery makes this a silly and trivial effort.
