Chilling movie with added kick thanks to type o' negative soundtrack
11 April 2003 | by ajones1982See all my reviews

I bought this movie off the internet after wanting to own a copy of Nosferatu, the 1922 classic silent film. I saw this movie there and too my surprise I also read it was redubbed with a Type o Negative soundtrack. The music sometimes doens't 'fit' with the movie, but I would say it goes perfect 98% of the time. If you aren't a fan of this type of music you probably won't be able to set and watch the movie with the sound on. But being a silent film , you will still understand the movie with the sound off :) But I feel the Type O Negative music defenitly added to the movie and the "dark" sound of it gave a new dimension to the atmosphere of the movie. But enough about that. The movie itself , while filmed in 1922, can still deliever chills to this day. This unauthorized make of Dracula was the first vampire movie ever made, and one of the best in my book. Only coming in at a modern day "unacceptable" 70 minutes , I won't leave a synopsis. But I will just say I HIGHLY reccomend this film and for the price, It's definetly worth watching at least once.
