    Description

    Dracula travels to 1930s India in this celebrated unproduced Hammer Horror script, directed by Mark Gatiss.

    The annals of movie history are full of lost treasures - spectacular scripts from world-renowned writers that could have been classics, had they only been made. Now, for the first time, some of these forgotten gems have been brought to life, fully realised as vivid, cinematic radio productions. Scripted by major 20th-century writers, including Harold Pinter, Arthur Miller, Alfred Hitchcock and Dennis Potter, they star a host of A-list actors and feature richly evocative, atmospheric soundtracks.

    In The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula, one of seven 'unmade movies' available on audio, it is 1934, and young Englishwoman Penny is travelling by train across India in search of her missing sister. En route, she meets sibling artistes Prem and Lakshmi, who have been hired by a Maharajah and his wife, the Rani, to entertain their aristocratic European guest. But evil lurks in the hidden caverns beneath the ancient palace, where the acolytes of a fiendish blood cult await their next human sacrifice.... 

    The intended follow-up to Scars of Dracula, this exotic, blood-drenched tale was nearly filmed on location in India in the early '70s, but financing problems meant it was dropped in favour of Dracula, AD 1972. Rescued from Hammer's vaults, it has been resurrected by Mark Gatiss and is the first new Hammer Horror Dracula production in 43 years. It stars Anna Madeley (All Creatures Great and Small) as Penny, with Nikesh Patel (Indian Summers) as Prem, Ayesha Dharker (The Indian Doctor) as Lakshmi and Meera Syal (Goodness Gracious Me) as the Rani. Lewis MacLeod (Dead Ringers) channels Christopher Lee as the iconic Count, and Michael Sheen (Staged) narrates. Get ready for a terrifying, edge-of-your-seat encounter as the Prince of Darkness rises from his grave once more....

    A fascinating experience

    This is an audio presentation of a Hammer Dracula film, like those made famous by Christopher Lee. The tone and pacing match very favorably to the films. I could visualize the film in my mind completely. With its full cast production, this was very much like listening to one of the better radio plays of yesteryear. I hope that more will be produced in the same manner.

    Regarding the story itself, the exotic locale definitely added to the atmosphere of the story and I can understand why it was never made into a film, as costs would have been prohibitive. This new format also allows for a darker ending to the story than might have been allowed in cinemas.

    If you enjoy the old Hammer films, then you owe it to yourself to get this production.
