Jonathan Harker, a young English lawyer, travels to Castle Dracula in the Eastern European country of Transylvania to conclude a real estate transaction with a nobleman named Count Dracula. As Harker wends his way through the picturesque countryside, the local peasants warn him about his destination, giving him crucifixes and other charms against evil and uttering strange words that Harker later translates into “vampire.” Frightened but no less determined, Harker meets the count’s carriage as planned. The journey to the castle is harrowing, and the carriage is nearly attacked by angry wolves along the way. Upon arriving at the crumbling old castle, Harker finds that the elderly Dracula is a well educated and hospitable gentleman. After only a few days, however, Harker realizes that he is effectively a prisoner in the castle.

About the Author:

Abraham "Bram" Stoker (Clontarf, 8 de noviembre de 1847-Londres, 20 de abril de 1912) fue un novelista y escritor irlandés, conocido por su novela Drácula (1897).

From AudioFile:

The BBC's full-cast dramatization of Bram Stoker's classic horror novel has all the promise of a stirring presentation. Not so, however. While the actors certainly present distinct vocal characterizations with the requisite amount of fear and dark sexuality and while most of the technical elements are more than satisfactory, this adaptation is extraordinarily difficult to follow, even for one who knows the story well. The dramatization has a few moments of terror and more than a few moments of hysteria, but in the final analysis it sounds like a film sound track rather than a dramatic presentation designed to be heard.
