Classic horror fans are in for the time of their lives as the Bram Stoker International Film Festival are screening two of the greatest but underrated vampire movies of all time – John Badham’s 1979 adaption of Dracula and Hammer Films’ Euro-Horror styled Vampire Circus! Dracula stars Frank Langella as the titular Count and is a more romantic variation on the theme than the Hammer Dracula films that horror fans had become used to; a modest success on its initial release, John Badham’s film is “a triumph of performance, art direction and mood over materials that can lend themselves so easily to self-satire” according to film critic Roger Ebert.
Vampire Circus (1972) is an extremely stylish and gory tale from Hammer, coming at a time when the studio was being more experimental in an attempt to adapt to the changing tastes of a modern audience. The whole production has an air of corruption and decadence, with some beautiful set-pieces, many gruesome deaths and fine performances from all the cast.
These are just two of the many classic horror and sci-fi B-movies that are screening alongside many world and UK horror premieres at this year’s festival, taking place from Thursday 24th – Sunday 27th October in Whitby, North Yorkshire. Tickets are now only available from the Bram Stoker desk, Thursday onwards at the Spa Pavilion, Whitby.
