On this episode, which complements Diabolique magazine’s special Bram Stoker centenary issue, I’m very pleased to have as my guest director John Badham, the man responsible for Universal Pictures’ 1979 adaptation of Dracula, starring Frank Langella and Sir Laurence Olivier. Hard to believe it’s been more than 30 years since the film was made. I know you’ll enjoy this look back.
