Dracula (1979) (Blu-ray) koch films
This “Dracula” restores the pure character of his first film appearances in F. W. Murnau’s “Nosferatu” (1922) and Bela Lugosis (1931). "(Roger Ebert)
In search of the likeness of his deceased lover, Count Dracula settles down in London at the end of the 19th century. The new environment soon succumbs to the fascination of the Transylvanian nobleman. However, when mysterious deaths occur in society, Professor van Helsing is called to help. He reveals the count as a bloodsucking undead and sets about hunting him in a cruel battle. (1 Blu-ray)
Based on the first adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, director John Badham (“The Flying Eye”, “War Games”) achieved a widely acclaimed, completely novel interpretation of the legendary material: instead of biting heartily-cruelly as usual, he drops Oscar ® nominee Frank Langella in the title role beguile his victims rather than bloodsucking charmer. Three-time Oscar® winner Sir Laurence Olivier as Professor van Helsing, assisted by Donald Pleasence (“Halloween”) as Dr. Seward is powerless at first, but then with resounding success.
