Beloved Count (2007)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This 27 minute featurette has director Jess Franco talking every aspect of his film COUNT Dracula. Franco starts off talking about the book and the character as well as commenting on the Coppola version as well as the one with Bela Lugosi and the early Hammer films. From here he starts talking about how he wanted to film the novel as close as possible and then later gets into details about how the lack of money prevented that. If you're a fan of the film or if you hate it, this interview is a lot of fun as Franco tells some highly entertaining stories, which may or may not be true. With such a long running time it allows Franco to go into details about the making of the film as well as various cast members including Lee, Soledad Miranda and of course Klaus Kinski. This is certainly a well-produced piece that delivers everything you'd hope it would.
