Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Several horror scenes, notably those not involving Dracula himself, are genuinely creepy."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
"The casting is right on target and the atmosphere fittingly eerie in director John Badham's suspenseful, handsomely-mounted 1979 version."

‑ Brian Holcomb, Kinetofilm
"Nice production values, but that's about it"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Granted, it's staged and composed like Masterpiece Theatre."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Just doesn't fly."
