Product Description

Product Description

Dracula (The Restored Version) Although there have been numerous screen versions of Bram Stoker's classic tale, none is more enduring than the 1931 original. The ominous portrayal of Count Dracula by Bela Lugosi, combined with horror specialist director Tod Browning, help to create the film's eerie mood. Dracula remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time. Dracula (Featuring New Music By Philip Glass) The original version of Dracula starring Bela Lugosi has been remastered to feature a specially-composed musical score by world-renowned composer Philip Glass and performed by Kronos Quartet. Glass' music lends greater depth to an already timeless classic! Dracula (Original Spanish Version) Filmed simultaneously with the English language version, the Spanish version of Dracula is completely different, yet equally ominous vision of the horror classic. Utilizing the same sets and identical script, cinematographer George Robinson and a vibrant cast including Carlos Villarias and Lupita Tovar deliver this chilling and evocative tale.

    While I fully understand the urge to swap this older release for one of the new Universal sets (Dracula or the deluxe Monster Legacy box), I implore you not to do it. Not only is the sound much better on this earlier release, but the new set contains the censored print that was originally released in 1931 in which Dracula's "death groans" are highly abbreviated. The contents of the two disks seem to be identical but the quality isn't. If you can put up with the very real possibility of having to repeatedly return sets in order to obtain one that performs perfectly, the Monster Legacy box is a good deal (especially at Amazon's price) and its transfers of the other films in the Universal series are very good, but this film is the exception. THIS ONE'S A KEEPER!

    By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 8 2007
    Format: DVD
    Bram Stoker's vampire novel has been remade dozens of times, but perhaps the best adaptation is the classic Bela Lugosi version. Fairly faithful to the novel and dripping with gothic atmosphere, what really makes "Dracula" stand out is the bone-chillingly charming performance by Lugosi.

    A solicitor, Renfield (Dwight Frye), is travelling to Count Dracula's castle for a real estate deal, despite the locals freaking out and crossing themselves whenever Dracula's mentioned. He soon finds out why -- the Count (Lugosi) is a vampire, who enslaves a mad Renfield to his will. Soon after, a ship with a dead crew (and Renfield and Dracula in the hold) arrives in England.

    Soon Dracula has moved into his new home, Carfax Abbey, and is insinuating himself with the Seward family -- and especially with pretty Lucy Westenra, who dies of blood loss and is reborn as a vampire. Only the intervention of the mysterious Dr. Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) can stop Dracula's attacks in London.

    Then there's the Spanish-language one, which is virtually identical and was filmed on the exact same sets, during the hours when the English-language one was not being shot. Same settings, same marks, same cinematography, many of the same scenes -- although it's much longer. It's excellent, and although it lacks that iconic intensity that Lugosi brought the English-language film, it's full of atmosphere and good acting.

    Technically "Dracula" wasn't the first adaptation of "Dracula" -- that honor belongs to "Nosferatu" -- but it was the first to actually tackle the storyline in Stoker's book. And to date, it's perhaps the only to portray everyone's favorite vampire with the necessary atmosphere -- ominous, dignified and creepy.

    When I think of Dracula, there are two images in my mind. The first one is of BramStoker's literature classic "Dracula" and the second one is the 1931 Dracula movie. Many actors have played the role of Count Dracula but the image of Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi as Dracula is a striking one, he defined the image of the vampire many of us have with his voice, charm and looks. After all he IS the original Dracula and in my opinion does the best representation of the role; he accurately transfers the character to the screen. The first attempt at a Dracula film was the 1922 German Expressionist film Nosferatu (another masterpiece, the two are very different) but legal problems with Stoker's widow changed this.

    Originally Lugosi's beliefs made it difficult for him to accept the role of Count Dracula This film made of actor Bela Lugosi a legend, Lugosi played some interesting roles afterwards and proved to be a very talented actor in such films as the independent White Zombie (1932), Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932), The Black Cat (1934) and The Raven (1935). In case you are wondering he could play much more than Dracula (and if you like his performance here you should definitely watch some of his other works). Lugosi had such a powerful presence as the count and it's hard to forget the classic lines he delivered such as "I never drink...Wine!"Dwight Frye is excellent as Renfield, delivering a fantastic performance full of emotion and all the actors were truly excellent in their respective roles.

    Speaking of the DVD itself now, you have the option of also playing the film with Phillip Glass'1999 soundtrack, and the 75th Anniversary edition also has the Spanish Dracula. Personally I prefer the film without the soundtrack, as it was originally but it is nice to have that option.

    ... if you like the new Philip Glass/Kronos Quartet music that is! I do, and recently purchased the DVD for it's wonderful option of the Spanish version, the 'standard' version, but also for the promise of the "CD-quality sound". In the latter only was I disappointed. The VHS sounds better. I verified this to myself through back & forth switching between the two versions through varying scenes in the early part of the film -- a VHS is less useful for forwarding to a precise place in the film for comparisons. Specifically the VHS appears to have the music louder & more 'forward' resulting in an appreciably more beautiful string tone. It also seems as if when mastering the VHS the film's audio track was muted at times when there was no spoken dialogue, again resulting in increased clarity. This does not seem to be the case with the DVD, which appears to add the Glass music on top the original noisy audio track. Does anyone else share this perception/observation? My next step is to check with someone at Universal Studios. If I'm correct it is the only 'flaw' in the otherwise outstanding DVD production -- but a not insignificant one, when you consider that a VHS analogue tape in a Hi-FI VCR should NOT sound better than a modern DVD -- but it does!
