Synopsis This stylish production of the classic gothic horror tale has Frank Langella repeating his electrifying, award-winning stage performance as the blood-thirsty count, and Laurence Olivier as his arch-nemesis, the devout vampire hunter, Van Helsing. High atop a foggy seaside cliff lies a foreboding asylum, home to the doctor (Donald Pleasence) who runs it, and his beautiful and free-spirited daughter, Lucy (Kate Nelligan). The doctor and Lucy have taken in Mina (Jay Francis), a weak and sickly young friend of Lucy's, whom they are attempting to nurse back to health. On a dark and gloomy night, a torrential storm ravages their coastal home and a ship crashes to its doom on a nearby craggy shore. The only survivor of the shipwreck, is a seductive and mysterious young man named Dracula (Frank Langella). The debonaire count charms the willing and nubile Mina, who is soon discovered dead from mysterious causes. In horror, her father is contacted and Van Helsing arrives in haste, only to discover the real identity of the suave and beguiling count, just as he has picked his new bride, the lovely Lucy. This fabulous John Badham-directed adaptation of the classic tale combines camp, a superbly atmospheric score by John Williams, and a remarkable ensemble cast for a wildly seductive horror spectacle.The film is based on the hit Broadway production, which also starred Frank Langella as Dracula.No, thank you, I never drink...wine.--Dracula (Frank Langella) to others at dinner.Frank Langella's acclaimed Broadway characterization as the famous count is effectively repeated on the silver screen in director John Badham's film.
