Dean Owen – The Brides Of Dracula

Dean Owen – The Brides Of Dracula (Monarch, May 1960)

 

Dean Owen - Brides Of Dracula

Not so much a straight novelisation, more a bizarre variation on the movie. Baron Meinster is still present and correct, bound by a chain to prevent his wandering abroad, but his nemesis, Lee Van Helsing, acts as if he’s never heard of vampires in his life. As with the film, despite the title, the Count isn’t involved in any shape or form. One of Owen’s innovations – the ending – preempts the climax of Kiss Of The Vampire by five years.
