HORROR OF DRACULA (1958) presented by Count Gore
UPDATE: Count Gore De Vol will not be able to appear in person at this screening, but is sending a special video introduction that will include an announcement about the next Count Gore presentation here on Sat, July 25!
This 1958 film is the first in horror production company Hammer Films' wildly successful Dracula film series. Sir Christopher Lee's Count Dracula and Peter Cushing's Doctor Van Helsing (the duo's first star pairing, to be reprised dozens of times) battle it out on the big screen, aided by sumptuous color, a pounding score composed by James Bernard, free-flowing fake blood and a bevy of vampire brides. Considered extreme for its day, if relatively PG by today's standards, the film's stylishness remains undiminished. DIR Terence Fisher; SCR Jimmy Sangster, from "Dracula" by Bram Stoker; PROD Anthony Hinds. UK, 1958, color, 82 min. NOT RATED
