    While Franco's relatively faithful adaptation has its faults, Lee's portrayal of a greying and weary Boyar is possibly my favourite Dracula. You really get the sense that he's been there, seen it, done it and left a trail of impaled corpses in his wake.

    Also of note is the unique and ghostly way that Franco shows Dracula's brides rising from their coffins, Kinski's quietly insane Renfield, Soledad Miranda's child-murdering Lucy and some pretty effective, no-budget effects consisting of a few shadows and silhouettes.

    An unusually restrained outing from Franco but one I thoroughly enjoyed.

Plus I've had to do a load of construction/carpentry work on my daughters bedroom and other assorted shit. Anyway, I thought I should at least try to get back into the swing of things and what better than the…
