Count Dracula (German: Nachts, wenn Dracula erwacht, At Night, When Dracula Awakens) is a horror film, directed by Jesus Franco and based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. Although Count Dracula stars Christopher Lee in the title role, it is not a Hammer production like his other Dracula films, but was produced by Harry Alan Towers. Klaus Kinski, who would play Dracula himself nine years later in Nosferatu the Vampyre, is also featured in the film. Count Dracula was advertised as the most faithful adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel. Among other details, it was the first film version of the novel in which Dracula begins as an old man and becomes younger as he feeds upon fresh blood. Count Dracula was released also in Italy as Il conte Dracula and in Spain as El Conde Drcula.
