Aisle Seat 10-6: Early October Fright Fest
Posted By: Andy Dursin 10/5/2015 - 9:00 PM
October’s arrival usually carries with it a handful of new genre releases. One of the major new catalog titles this month is a 4K remastered presentation of BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA (***, 1992, 127 mins., R; Sony), a film could’ve easily been titled “Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula” for as much as this 1992 adaptation utilizes elements from the Stoker book that other cinematic versions omitted, it also takes numerous liberties with the original text – including turning the beloved vampire tale into a love story, a conscious artistic decision the filmmaker made partially to capitalize on a younger audience (which he, in turn, accomplished by casting more youthful leads than your traditional Dracula rendition).e

I can say this now because I no longer have a label: I hate liner notes. I almost never read them. Like a lot of things, they are easy to do poorly, and hard to do well. The writer needs a knowledge of film, of music, of film music (not the same thing), the ability to write clearly, an understanding that it’s a commercial product (no trashing the movie), and a willingness to do research and check facts—like looking up the years of the movies and not just pulling them from memory (Jeff Bond!).
