Count Dracula (1970).

Welcome back to another episode of Chronicle Podcast (An Almanac of Old World Horrors), this is season 1 episode 4.

This is a podcast dedicated to discussing European Horror Cinema only and is the brainchild of podcaster Duncan McLeish (The Podcast Under the Stairs). Each season will run for 6 episodes and drop every two weeks with season 1 looking exclusively at European Horror Cinema through its Vampires.

With an emphasis on giving you an insight into some of the weird and wonderful stories behind the movies, we continues our journey with Count Dracula (1970). A movie billed as one of the most faithful adaptations to the Stoker source material from one of Europe’s most sleazy exploitation directors? Throw into the mix Christopher Lee as the Count in one of the few occasions he dawned the cloak and fangs outside Hammer Horror Studios, Klaus Kinski as Renfield & Herbert Lom as Van Helsing…have I got your attention yet?

Chronicle Podcast was researched, written, recorded and produced by me for you!!

Join me next time to look at The Reflecting Skin (1990).
