Count Dracula and His Vampire Bride

( 3 )

Overview

The final installment in Hammer Studios' Dracula series is also the least interesting of the lot. A fairly direct follow-up to Dracula A.D. 1972, this sequel finds the Count (Christopher Lee) developing a potent strain of bubonic plague which he and his devil-worshipping disciples plan to release from 1970's London to wipe out nearly all life on earth. His efforts are challenged once again by the dedicated Dr. Van Helsing (Peter Cushing), leading to a rather uninvolving climax. Despite the always-welcome presence...

Overview

The final installment in Hammer Studios' Dracula series is also the least interesting of the lot. A fairly direct follow-up to Dracula A.D. 1972, this sequel finds the Count (Christopher Lee) developing a potent strain of bubonic plague which he and his devil-worshipping disciples plan to release from 1970's London to wipe out nearly all life on earth. His efforts are challenged once again by the dedicated Dr. Van Helsing (Peter Cushing), leading to a rather uninvolving climax. Despite the always-welcome presence of Lee and Cushing, this installment plays too flagrantly with the time-honored Hammer Gothic formula, giving Dracula actual dialogue and surrounding the leads with a dull, amateurish supporting cast -- with the possible exception of Joanna Lumley (later of BBC-TV's Absolutely Fabulous). This also marked Lee's final performance as the Count and signaled the beginning of the end for Hammer's horror heyday. Also known as Satanic Rites of Dracula and Dracula is Dead and Well and Living in London.

    Sorry ending

    It's really rather sad that the Dracula, Lee, Hammer series came to an end like this. One of the most annoying aspects of plot (besides it's lack of one) would have to be the ever present leather vested hechmen on Vespas. Like I said... annoying. It was unecessarily bloody and no aspects really tied into the typical plot. The bacterial cultures were grossly fake and in no way resembling life. TYh econversation finally occuring between Lee and Cushing is pitiful and contains little if any pertinant information. The idea that Dracula doesn't want to live anymore is interesting and could have been played upon well, but it really just didn't cut it. Additionaly, when did Dracula ever conduct "rites"? Totally nonsensical in every way.

    Good but not at all Good as "Dracula A.D. 1972"

    This is ok a little Slow but fun to Watch It's Now 2 years after "Dracula A.D. 1972" and Count Dracula has Risen again but this time it's not so much as wanting a Bride or Drinking Blood now we are into ending the World. In secret Dracula for the last 2 years "I Guess He Came Back Directly After The Previous One" has been creating a bubonic plague To wipe out all Life on Earth So He can finnaly Die, Professor Van Helsing finds out and tries to stop him once more and save his Granddaughter

    EVIL BEGETS EVIL ON THE SABBATH OF THE UNDEAD!

    Once again set in modern day,Count Dracula disguises himself as a property tycoon intent on destroying the world by using a bacteria made for him by a scientist. Alan Gibson once again directs this film which is a cross between the James Bond films and The Avengers.Joanna Lumley replaces Stephanie Beacham as Van Helsing's granddaughter.
