Bond Villain Vants To Suck Your Blood

Christopher Lee wasn't the only Bond villain to sink his teeth into the occasional virgin's neck. Octopussy's Kamal Khan, Louis Jordan, played the notorious undead Count to great acclaim in the 1977 BBC miniseries Count Dracula. Oft-bootlegged and long sought after by collectors, this version of Bram Stoker's novel (said to be the most faithfull to date) was previously only ever officially available briefly in England as a limited edition Region 2 PAL disc. According to DVD Drive-In, Warner Home Video/BBC Video will rectify that this September by releasing a Region 1 disc for $14.98. Head on over there to see the cover art.
