Release date: 1974
This was a BBC documentary, which I came across as Anthony Hogg mentioned it to me. At the time of review available via BBC iPlayer the documentary was an archive piece and featured Daniel Farson investigating what made Dracula so enduringly popular.

I was struck by the on-set visit to the filming of Vampyres, which is of course a classic piece of sexploitation cinema. Farson finishes off by speaking to some earnest clergymen about the presence of real satanic evil, even though he admits, at the end, that he doesn't really believe in that sort of stuff. From a secular point of view it was a bit hokey. The documentary was of a time, but that was half the joy. All in all 6 out of 10.
At the time of review I could find no corresponding page on IMDb.
