Check out the Audio Room to listen to Mr. Lee's dramatic reading of an abridged version of Bram Stoker's Dracula. It is a wonderful rendition with sound effects and has Mr. Lee performing all the different character parts. He is absolutely brilliant in this performance!

I must agree it is a good listen, is it new or old? I think it is the first time I have heard him laugh like that in chapter 2. I`ve often wondered what he would be like as Prof Van Helsing, now I know. Great stuff.

Colin,
I'm pretty sure this is not a recent recording, but the exact details are unknown to me. As to Van Helsing, I thought he was marvelous. That was my favorite characterization on the program. Mind you the American Quincy Morris was well done too.

I loved Mr Lee's creative reading of Dracula...it satisfied all my unconscious desires!!!!

I do wish that one day he would read something for Edgar Alan Poe... this would certainly be a very precious moment...

Well, Dali if you want to buy those CD´s : CL´s reading Dracula....then please check this url,

http://www.chillertheatre.com

I think,in the Club-Store, it´s not available !!! At least , not yet !!! Maybe some day it will....

Concerning Edgar Allen Poe. I´m not sure (I may be wrong), but I think there are existing CD´s on which Christopher Lee is reading Poe-stories.
But I don´t know where you can buy those !!!!

Regards....Steffi

Can anybody tell me where I can order the 2-CD set of Christopher Lee's interpretation of "Dracula?"  (As far as I can tell, the Chiller Theater site is entirely dysfunctional.  I've tried them half a dozen times, with a valid credit card!)  I'd really like to have this classic reading. Any ideas?

It worked for me... The double cd Of Dracula read by MR Lee is $20.00...and it has a really nice cover (Dracula!!!)
Perhaps that's a good price
Randy, keep trying to get in the site...
Steffi...I dunno how you managed to find this shop!!!
I could stay for years searching on the internet...and be unable to satisfy myself!!!!
Some people are really good internet searchers!!!!

Has anyone come across another site to buy this CD set of Christopher Lee's reading of "Dracula?"  (I still can't seem to order it from the Chiller site.  Anybody else having this problem?)
