Andy Warhol's DRACULA 1973
  • Artist Rooms
Throughout his career Warhol made numerous films, many of which were experimental and pushed the boundaries of what was considered acceptable in cinema. In 1973 Warhol and Paul Morrissey collaborated on two Italian-produced horror films – ‘Dracula’ and ‘Frankenstein’. Originally produced in 3-D, these films were violent and sexually explicit versions of the nineteenth-century classic novels. Despite Warhol’s name being attached to the film, Dracula was essentially the work of Morrissey and it achieved a cult following. The count was played by German actor Udo Kier and he features here on the poster for the film’s release in China. The photographs appear to be stills from the movie and are arranged to resemble a film strip.
