Throughout history Dracula has filled the hearts of men with terror and the hearts of women with desire. This stylish new production of the classic gothic horror tale stars Frank Langella, repeating his electrifying, award-winning stage performance as the blood-thirsty Count, and Laurence Olivier as the devout vampire hunter Von Helsing who is Dracula's nemesis. A great cast, fine direction, and a superb atmospheric musical score make this the ultimate Dracula.

Official Run Time: 109 mins. The 1979 theatrical version looks noticeably different from recent prints. When it was re-issued for a Widescreen Laserdisc release in 1991, the director chose to alter the color timing, desaturating the look of the film. Both the UK and US DVD releases of Dracula (1979) have the color timing altered by the director. The UK Pre-Cert VHS rental release remains untouched from the alterations carried out by Dracula's director John Badham.
