The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula on BBC Radio 4 10/28/17

Post by DannyBoy » Fri Oct 27, 2017 8:25 pm

Now this is very interesting; an unmade Hammer Films script titled "The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula" written by Anthony Hinds (producer & writer of many Hammer films, and son of Hammer co-founder William Hinds) and set in 1930s India, which apparently was originally suppose to be the next film in Hammer's Dracula series after 1970's Scars of Dracula, has been adapted for radio and will be broadcast tomorrow on BBC Radio 4. If only Christopher Lee was still alive to portray Dracula once more. Anyway, I hope this will end up online at some point so that those of us Hammer Horror fans who aren't in the UK can listen to it sometime.

Hi Danny,
i must say thank you for reminding me of these marvelous Hammer Horror movies, especially the Vampire ones. Always been a fan of vampires in general and Dracula in particular. My mother had stacks of such books and i would stay home from school reading them often which i thought was a better use of my time. ;) Also saw most of the Hammer movies when they first came out and am now going to rediscover them again thanks to your revues.
Regards.Peter.

Yeah, that won't work for me unfortunately since I'm not in the UK. Hopefully "The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula" will be uploaded to YouTube or somewhere similar at some point.
