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’. These films were violent and sexually explicit versions of the nineteenth-century classic novels. Despite Warhol’s name being included in the title, 'Dracula' was essentially the work of Morrissey and it achieved a cult following. This poster features the German actor Udo Kier who played Dracula. The image resembles a monochromatic Warhol screenprint, yet the eyes and lips appear collaged on top which focuses attention on his manic stare and the blood dripping from his mouth.
