Ep. 04-29: Dracula (1979 & 1992)

Dracula (1979): Transylvanian Count Dracula (Frank Langella) washes ashore in England after a shipwreck. Discovered by Mina Van Helsing (Jan Francis), Dracula integrates himself into the lives of Mina and her friend, Lucy Seward (Kate Nelligan). However, when Mina dies and her father, Prof. Van Helsing (Laurence Olivier), attributes her death to a vampire, evidence shows that Count Dracula is the monster, and Lucy is his next target.

Bram’s Stoker’s Dracula (1992): Count Dracula, a 15th-century prince, cursed to feed on the blood of the living, imprisons his lawyer, Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves), after seeing a photograph of his fiancée, Mina (Winona Ryder). Dracula goes to London in search of Mina, who is the spitting image of his dead wife. Harker’s friend, Van Helsing, suspects Dracula’s intentions, but can he and Lucy’s suitors thwart the monster when Mina has fallen in love with him?

Dracula & Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Double dose part two! Yes, we’re still in Transylvania for the second of our two-part, themed double-feature! This time, we’re covering two more nods to Stoker’s classic tale, including the 1979 Frank Langella version, and the all-star production from Francis Ford Coppola in 1992. Join us as we discuss the former’s relation to the play (like Lugosi, Langella originated the role on Broadway), and the lavish production values of Coppola’s take in 1992, arguably the most faithful adaption to the original text so far. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys travels from the Carpathian mountains to London with a crucifix in hand, listening close at every step for the whispers of the undead.
