The film is shot on beautiful locations in Italy and was partly improvised as the filming of Flesh for Frankenstein had been quicker and less costly than expected.
Like Werner Herzog's Nosferatu (1979) was more a political allegory using the imagery of Murnau's silent classic more than it was a horror movie, so it is with Morrisey.
Although less explicitly than in the Frankenstein film, where modernity was described in an Anthony Giddens-like discourse, as a "juggernaut" out of control, the theme in the Dracula film is more focused on the values of the "new" and the "old" world.
