Thanks for the replys!
-- The "Legend 7 Golden..." I saw was on DVD and was the "full release version". Yes indeed, it is Hilarious. Hopping Asian vampires with ridiculas makeup/masks--and of course before the bite the girls, they must naturally rip their shirts off. So funny! But, it is quite fun to watch! Cushing as always, give his all for the role.
-- Coppola's film-glad to hear some confirmation here. I really didn't like it. Yes, totally agree with comments about Wynona. She is one of those actresses that I just can't imagine what people see in her. She is pretty consistently is awful. Keanu was Definitely out of his element too. Agree too with Branaugh's "Frankenstein". Again BORING, and I thought he'd never put his shirt on or quit moving the camera.
-- Dracula Vs. Frankenstein is fun. I saw it many years ago on TV. It is still crap, but I remember having fun watching it. Has a great & funny ending.
-- Saw Blade, somewhat enjoyed it though Way too stylish for my tastes (especially with the quick editing and constant moving camera). Haven't seen 2.
-- Welles Fan, I will send you a tape for Jordan's Drac. Where can I get your Address?
-- If you haven't read the book, please do so! It's a wonderful read. Just a fantastic thriller.
-- Hey, how about "Love at First Bite"? It's an amusing little fillm with some great laughs. Artie Shaw as Renfield is great as is Richard Benjamin as Van Helsing.
-- I listened to the commentary on "Dracula Prince of Darkness" recently. Goodness.... Ol' Lee sure can sound pretentious at times! He was sounding off left & right about the book and how he hated the dialogue in the film (that's why he chose to do it mute). And how he always tried to add dialogue from the book into the films. Beyond that, he talks with Such authority on a variety of things--but a lot of time it is just BS. Don't get me wrong, I like Lee, but he does get a bit pompous at times.
