Horror of Dracula (8-May-1958)

Director: Terence Fisher

Writer: Jimmy Sangster

From novel: Dracula by Bram Stoker

Music Composed by: James Bernard

Producer: Anthony Hinds

Keywords: Horror, Vampire

Jonathon Harker, librarian, arrives at Dracula's castle to catalogue books, but with the ulterior motive of slaying the vampire; he encounters a young woman who requests his help escaping the castle. Unexpectedly, she bites Harker's neck -- she is actually Dracula's bride. Harker manages to drive a stake through her heart, but fails in his attempt at Dracula. Transformative and influential adaptation, taking many liberties with Stoker's novel. Received a Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation.
