1979 | 15 | 109 min­utes | £ 17.99 ( Blu- ray) Satur­day Night Fever helmer John Bad­ham’s adap­ta­tion of Bram Stoker’s clas­sic novel makes its Blu- ray de­but. Frank Lan­gella is se­duc­tive, vul­ner­a­ble and mes­meric as the Count. Stylish, at­mo­spheric and hugely ro­man­tic, it shifts the ac­tion from 1897 to the Ed­war­dian era, pitch­ing Drac­ula into a world of gramo­phones and mo­tor­cars. We said: “Its bleakly soul­ful English lo­ca­tions, fab­u­lous cast and evoca­tive pe­riod trap­pings make this one of the bet­ter stabs at Stoker’s undy­ing icon.”
