Sobrevalorado film pesimamente actuado, con un guión de porqueria, serie B pretencioso. Lo interesante sin duda es ver a Vittorio de Sica, Udo Kier y a Roman Polanski actuando (y por supuesto a Andy Warhol dirigiendo).
Just like he did with Flesh for Frankenstein, Morrissey puts his own twist on the Dracula tale as if he was his own Hammer Studios with a little bit of Warhol sprinkled in there for good measure. Also Udo Kier makes a very interesting Dracula.
We showed this film at my college, and I made the posters for it. In big letters right in the middle of it I wrote "Warning: Contains scenes of graphic violence." They still complained that they hadn't been warned about it. I love Udo, so I love this film.
udo kier is the best dracula ever. really gets to the heart (haha) of how gross it is to drink blood. some really cool body horror here. oh, and this classic line: "zee blood of zees whooahs ees keeling meeee!"
Both satirical and morally decadent, Morrissey delivers an adaption that feels so staged but contains performance that sing with spontaneity. I love the dichotomy at play! And the satire! Also, talk about a gorgeous trash fest! Maybe a little slow but its nice to have breathing room to what the players put on performances that wreak of bad melodrama and self-consciousness.
What could have been fun and campy was like watching paint dry. Had its moments (Udo Kier and his gorgeous eyes, Udo Kier licking virgin blood, Udo Kier demonstrating crippling gag reflexes, Udo Kier turning green, Roman Polanski's cameo, Dallesandro's hilarious I-don't-want-to-be-here expressions), but they were not enough. And damn, the women were annoying!
I really liked this sexual/gruesome adaptation of 'Dracula'. Udo Kier is one of the best dracula's (next to Lugosi). at times it was quiet, and it was a bit drawn out, but still enjoyable, bloody, sexual and amusing. really glad I watched this and I want to see "Flesh for Frankenstein" next.
