As a sequel to the first “Mabuse” film, “Etiopomar” continues the surreal, darkly-suspenseful story of the city Etiopomar, taken over by the “mental manipulator” Dr. Mabuse. He grips the dying city in his power while some – human or not? –citizens try to attack and weaken him, and others seek to snatch control and destroy him.
--- “Dracula” stars Oscar-winning actor Jack Palance as the legendary vampire of Bram Stoker’s novel. Often cited as one of the best versions of the classic book, it originally aired on CBS-TV in 1974 and was released theatrically outside America. Shot on location in Yugoslavia and England, the film includes an atmospheric music score by composer Robert Cobert, who turns 90 this year.
