Dracula (1958)

On 22 May 1958, Hammer Film Productions release what would be the first in a number of Dracula movies, following on from the successful release of Curse of Frankenstein.

Dracula would be a loose re-imagination of the Bram Stoker novel, utilising the same tools and methods that had made Frankenstein such a success.

The following is a podcast in which I endeavour to look at the movie in some detail and how it stands up today, with the assistance of my co-host, Antony Yee. Now, we are in no way experts or gurus in the name of Hammer, just fans of their work and the horror genre, so hopefully this will show in our discussions.

So feel free to listen below and please add any thoughts or comments to our conversations 🙂
