An interesting experimental documentary. This semi-documentary uses ODD and DISTURBING SOUND CUES to create an extremely unsettling mood for this film-within-a-film. Although this drags in the middle, it is still quite fascinating to absorb. And "absorb" IS the best way to describe how to experience this. The final scene with Lee describing the death of Dracula at the end of the novel... is a perfect ending here.
I actually think I prefer this to the actual Hammer 'Dracula'. Cutting sound almost completely down to ambient noise, as well as casting the color scheme into high-contrast black-and-white makes the footage a lot more haunting to behold, especially when the documentary element is less visible. Granted, it is interesting to pick apart as a documentary, too.
This was obviously an old film by the sound and the fact that it was in black and white. I can't tell the exact year though. This film was about a composer's journey surviving in Poland during World War II. The story it tells was actually real and factual so I thought that was interesting. In my opinion, it was boring because this isn't my type of movie, but anyone who likes history would enjoy this movie.
This film was especially interesting to watch! What was unique about the film was the fact that it was a horror film about the making of a horror film, which in itself is hard to get a complete understanding of. It is obvious that the film was planned out carefully by the director so that it is easy for the audience to make sense of what is going on and so that it is enjoyable to watch.
Bizarre but very interesting. The Dracula story is one of my favourites which added to my enjoyment of this. Feel confused as to how much my enjoyment was down to this or Franco's film - which I would now love to see by the way. Anything with Christopher Lee in is worth watching. Incidentally, the main soundtrack theme has appeared in another movie - with lyrics - can anyone help me with that as I can't place it?
Although an interesting idea, the alternative variation on the theme felt disjointed and insubstantial in plot, sound and dynamic to maintain interest as a feature length exercise. It stood frustratingly on the fence between documentary/experimental art piece and ended up looking like an exhausting collection of out takes.
