Reedited Dracula Screened at Cannes


The classic Hammer version + gore!

The Independent reports on a rerelease of the classic Hammer version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival last night. The reedited version includes scenes judged too gory for audiences in 1958. Here’s a clip:

In one scene, a beautiful young woman is ravished to a bloodcurdling soundtrack of grunts and groans. In another, a stake is driven through the heart of a vampire in a crescendo of gore, guts and copious splatterings of luridly red blood. There are no polite cutaways and this is not for the faint-hearted. Welcome to Dracula: Uncut.
