COUNT DRACULA'S GREAT LOVE does not stand as my favorite Paul Naschy film--that honor goes to WEREWOLF SHADOW, followed closely by HORROR RISES FROM THE TOMB and the recent ROJO SANGRE. However, I still love CDGL's adventurous take on Dracula conventions, and BCI will soon release what appears to be the first authorized DVD of the film, which certainly seems overdue for what is one of Naschy's major works from the 1970s. While BCI has promised an anamorphic transfer (!), they have unfortunately packaged the film with VAMPIRE HOOKERS and will use the title CEMETERY GIRLS. The cover art, which DVD Drive-In recently unveiled along with the highly recommended double bill of THE TERROR and SATAN'S SLAVE, strikes me as underwhelming. Below, I've included scans of cover art I'd rather see. Sorry for the so-so quality, but I could only find black and white reproductions. I digs the vampire babes!
