Trama e commenti: cinematografo.it - kataweb.it - mymovies.it: «Il conte Dracula raggiunge la sua proprietà in Inghilterra. Dopo il suo arrivo una ragazza della zona dà chiari segni di deperimento del sangue. Interessante rivisitazione televisiva del Dracula di Bram Stoker (1897), che Jack Palance impersona come una figura quasi patetica, vittima di un destino crudele. Atmosfera gotica sapientemente ricreata, grazie anche alla bella sceneggiatura di Richard Matheson. Eccellente fotografia del veterano Oswald Morris».
Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - entertainment.msn.com - moria.co.nz - rottentomatoes.com - vampyres-online.com: «1987. Londoner estate agent Jonathan Harker (Murray Brown) travels to Transylvania, to the castle of Count Dracula (Jack Palance). The mysterious client is looking for a residence in England, but Harker does not suspect why... The reason goes back 400 years in time, as the cruel wallachian prince Vlad Tepes - Dracula - returned from an expedition and lost the love of his life by a tragic fate. It was then when he pledged himself to the forces of darkness. Now he recognized Lucy (Fiona Lewis), the best friend of Harker's bride Mina (Penelope Horner), on a photograph as the reincarnation of his lost love. Once again, the centuries-old love is aroused with unbridled force, and Dracula wants to possess Lucy at all costs. Nothing can hold him back. He leaves Harker to his three vampire brides at the castle, and travels immediately to England. Soon, the beloved Lucy falls voluptuously into Dracula's arms, and he sinks his teeth into her beautiful neck. Even the surveillance by Lucy's fiancé Arthur (Simon Ward) and vampire hunter Van Helsing (Nigel Davenport) can not save her. After spending several nights in the arms of the prince of darkness, she's rapidly dying by anaemia. She transforms into a vampire herself, and Dracula believes that his love belongs to him now and for all eternity, but Arthur and Van Helsing are onto a pitiless vampire hunt. It's a race against time, as Dracula already has brought his next victim to heel, the beautiful Mina. Through an extremely erotic act, she drinks of his blood, and therefore becomes a part of him...».
