N.p. Bryanston Pictures, Circa 1974. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1974 film featuring Joe Dallesandro and Roman Polanski (uncredited in the role of 'man in tavern'), here under the working title "Andy Warhol's Dracula," title visible through paper tape covering byline in bottom margin.

One of Warhol's two horror films (the other being "Frankenstein," released the same year on a double bill), both USA/Italy/France co-productions, and the pinnacle of his film career in terms of popularity outside avant-garde film circles. Attempts to court commercial markets included rating the film X, and director Paul Morrissey, very much influenced by the look of the Hammer horror films of the 1960s, gave the films a lurid, shocking appeal.

Set in Italy, and shot on location in Italy and Serbia.

9.75 x 8 inches. Slight diagonal trim on upper left side margin, else Near Fine.

Criterion Collection 28.
