Review: There are so many versions of Dracula spanning so many decades, how do you choose one to watch?  Well, there are the classics, but there is also this fantastic adaptation from 1973 starring Jack Palance as the prince of the undead.   This blu-ray release is a really fun watch and one that I hadn't seen in decades!  It was made by Dan Curtis, of Dark Shadows fame (the show not the Burton film!).  I had all but forgotten this version until this blu-ray came out.  The film looks amazing in high-definition and its a lot spooier than I remember, I was very impressed.  This is a must-have for any horror fan!

Interest Range: Horror
