Dracula (1958) - Terence Fisher

Tuesday, 9 November 2010

This is one of the film interpretations about Dracula. However, in this case they’ve mixed heroes from other sages about vampires. To be honest, there are so many versions of the Dracula nowadays. So, you can’t say for sure which one is the right. However, the book is more interesting than film. If you are interested in you can find it here.

I was surprised to see familiar faces of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Everyone knows Christofer Lee’s characters: Saruman from Lord of the Rings and Count Dooku. And Peter Cushing’s character is legendary Grand Moff Tarkin from Star Wars universe, who is more famous by books rather by films. This added many pluses to my perception during the viewing.

Generally, I liked atmosphere of this film, décor was incredibly beautiful. I know that sometimes you can see, that everything is fake, but I tried not to mention all these nuances and watching beautiful film.
I’m looking forward for the next session. The interest is growing exponentially.
