The world's most famous vampire is naturally hard to kill. Over and over, Bram Stoker's "Dracula" has been adapted for the screen, with widely varying degrees of accuracy and success. Interpretations have ranged from cadaverous and creepy (Max Schreck in "Nosferatu", 1922) to elegant (Lugosi and his imitators) to bizarre (Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's "Dracula", 1992). But has Stoker's vampire ever been portrayed as the author intended? Here, is the updated edition of Lyndon Joslin's acclaimed 1999 guide to the films based on Stoker's novel. Covered in detail for the first time are "Drakula Istanbul'da" (1953); "Dracula" (1969); "Dracula 2000" (2000); "Dracula's Curse" (2002); and "Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary" (2003). Also new to this edition is complete cast and credit information for the "Dracula" series films from Universal and Hammer as well as for the "Shadows of Stoker" films - i.e., those that clearly borrow from Stoker without once citing the source. It also features photographs, bibliography, and an index.
