For his final screen appearance as Dracula, Christopher Lee stars in this 1976 comedy in which The Count and his son must survive the modern world.

2-DISC COLLECTION FEATURING THE ORIGINAL DIRECTOR'S CUT AND THE U.S. THEATRICAL VERSION



For his tenth and final screen appearance as Dracula, Christopher Lee starred - speaking fluent French - in this slyly ingenious 1976 horror comedy based on a novel by Claude Klotz (THE HAIRDRESSER'S HUSBAND) and directed by Academy Award® nominee Édouard Molinaro (LA CAGE AUX FOLLES). But when the U.S. distributor re-cut and dubbed the film into a broad parody, it was deservedly met with universal disdain. Molinaro's Director's Cut can now be experienced for the first time ever in America, lovingly restored in 4K from the original negative with both French & English audio tracks. Bernard Menez (DAY FOR NIGHT), Marie-Hélène Breillat (LAST TANGO IN PARIS) and future writer/director Catherine Breillat (ANATOMY OF HELL) co-star in this 'charming satire' (The Christopher Lee Filmography) featuring a sumptuous score by Vladimir Cosma (DIVA) and loaded with vintage & new Special Features.
