The best ever version of Dracula to date and also the most true to the book. It is actually scary. Not keep you awake at night scary, but chilling. The production is as you would expect from bbc radio; superb.
Really, I was listening to this whilst working and I actually got so spooked that when there was a knock at the workshop door I jumped out of my skin. I thought that there was no way that Dracula story could be made better. I was wrong. I highly recommend this audio recording.
A haunting compelling and at times desturbing dramatisation, it had me gript from start to finish. With it's all-star cast, sinister music and scarey sound efects, this is a must for all horror fans, as ones who are new to the horror style. This book has been very well adapted for radio and is overall a stunning peice of radio theatre. I rate it 10 out of 10!
Not sure I would, great atmosphere but relied on having read the book before/ knowing the basic story
It's incredibly difficult to work out who is who, might be just me but voices all sound similar!
For the scary atmosphere yes
You may need to rewind a lot to work out who is who, might be just me though!
