Nightmare! The Birth Of Horror - Dracula

Nightmare! The Birth Of Horror - Dracula - 1996 - 6/10



Good horror documentary about the genesis and development of Dracula.
Not the film, nor the Romanian prince, but the Bram Stoker creation.
Sorry folks, Bram never seemed to have journeyed to Bran Castle.
Stoker’s biography is sketched, but the focus is on how he fleshed out the story, where he kept coming up with fresh ideas and settings.
Films barely touched on, as cinema flowered after Stoker’s death.
Manuscripts - photographs - first printing books among highlights.

Re: Nightmare! The Birth Of Horror - Dracula

The companion book that goes with this documentary as well as the others in its series is a really fun read: Nightmare: The Birth of Horror, by Christopher Frayling, BBC Books, 1996. It covers Dracula, Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Hound of the Baskervilles. I believe some of the companion documentary films for the latter three are available at YouTube or wherever.

Re: Nightmare! The Birth Of Horror - Dracula

I've just started reading this curious Icelandic version of Dracula which is apparently radically different from the original.
