The Film 89 Podcast Episode 112 – Dracula (1897, 1931, 1992).

On Episode 112 of The Film ‘89 Podcast, Steve and Skye are joined once again by regular guest host, John Arminio and for once, the crux of their chosen topic isn’t a film, but a book, author Bram Stoker’s 1897 tale of the now famous Transylvanian Count Dracula. As well as discussing this classic of horror literature, the guys discuss some of the big screen adaptations of Stoker’s novel, in particular, Tod Browning’s 1931 film starring Bela Lugosi, titled of course, Dracula, a film that kick-started a long running series of Monster features for Universal. They also go in-depth on a more recent adaptation of the book but one that’s now already over three decades old, Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 film, with the slightly longer title of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. They explore the making of these two film adaptations as well as the prominent religious iconography, already present in the source novel, that Coppola weaved into his adaptation of a book that is arguably as important as any in the horror genre.
