Dracula
« on: March 17, 2020, 06:30:29 AM »
I'm a big Dracula fan, I've even read the 1897 novel. 

My fav Dracula movies:

Nosferatu (1922)

This deserves to be put in its own category because it's that awesome.



Dracula (1931)

Classic.



Dracula (1958)

Also classic.  All the Hammer Draculas are good.  Especially Dracula:  Prince of Darkness.



Count Dracula (1970)

This one is more about mood and atmosphere like a lot of 60s/70s European horror movies.  I think it's pretty underrated.



Nosferatu (1979)

This is very haunting and gothic, one of the best remakes.



Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

This is a visual feast, great music and setpieces.  Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins are awesome.



Dracula:  Dead and Loving It (1995)

This parodies mostly the 1931 Dracula and a few other Dracula movies.



Dracula 2000 (2000)

Yep, this is kinda cheesy and silly but it's a fun Dracula flick.

It's quite easy to find on Amazon and I have at least three copies in various box sets with other great Vampire Films all Pre 1980s.  Just look into the fine details of the versions you are interested in because many of them have differnt scores.  I have a copy that has Type O Negative as the score.  The 1970s one is also a great and I cant recommend it enough.  But yeah definitely check Amazon

I used to have the dvd of Nosferatu that had the original score. 

How is that? - it's a silent film.  Apparently they had live orchestra playing during screenings.

Not a fan of those other scores.

I agree some of the other scores arent that great.  But eh I'll watch it either way. 
I did get to see Angelspit (just the guy Zoog) and some other artists do a live scoring of the film.  Was really good poorly attended though

I'm talking when it originally came out in 1922.  Silent films of that era apparently had live orchestra instead of a soundtrack, since the technology didn't exist yet.

Oh man I can't believe I didn't mention the other Hammer Draculas I like.  It probably deserves its own thread but the Hammer Dracula series is AWESOME but I will only list my favourites (the first movie I already mentioned):

Dracula Prince of Darkness (1966)



In a lot of ways I think this is better than the original because the cinematography is absolutely beautiful.  In a lot of ways this is even my favourite.

Scars of Dracula (1970)




The most underrated entry IMHO.

I do like the others as well but I get the most out of the above two and the original.

Ah, what the hell:

Dracula Has Risen From Grave



Taste the Blood of Dracula



Dracula A.D. 1972



I like Brides of Dracula too but it doesn't have Christopher Lee in it which is a shame.  Satanic Rites I haven't seen in ages but that seemed more like a James Bond film.  Then there's that Kung Fu one, I haven't seen that.
