Film technically is the Spanish version of "Dracula" filmed at the same time and sets as the Hollywood version superior to the American one. It has better photography, is sexier, has greater detail and give the scenes better time to grow, but the Spanish actor playing Dracula lacks charm and can not even reach Bela Lugosi to his knees which is the reason why this movie usually get overlooked. Which is a shame.
Frankly rather silly. Carlos Villarias as Dracula is not able to summon anywhere near the same level of menace, authority and dignity that Lugosi is able to conjure so memorably. Villarias comes off like some parody version of the character, baring his teeth and slinking around -- he's just got no class at all, and his big showdown with Dr. Van Helsing is just embarassing. Forgettable.
