Overview

The Hammer Studios classic Horror of Dracula is far closer to the letter (and spirit) of the Bram Stoker novel than the Bela Lugosi version of Dracula. Lawyer Jonathan Harker (John Van Eyssen) arrives in Transylvania to close a real estate transaction with the reclusive Count Dracula (Christopher Lee), discovering all too late that his client is a vampire, who intends to suck the blood out of every available neck in England. Once ensconced at Carfax Abbey, Dracula puts Harker's fiancee Lucy (Carol Marsh) under his spell. It's up to Dr. Van Helsing and his seemingly bottomless bag of crucifixes and stakes to attempt to save the day. Dracula's demise is staged in spectacular fashion, best seen in (you'll pardon the pun) full-blooded Technicolor. Only two carps: Why do all the Transylvanian peasants speak in Cockney accents? And where's that old bug-eater Renfield?

Oh I know, all the professional reviewers call Bela Lugosi ,Frank Langella, Michael Nouri,et al the definitive Dracula portrayals.Now I have seen and enjoyed them all, including the aforementioned gentlemen, but I also know who scared the heck out of me when I was a kid.When I saw Christopher Lee in Horror of Dracula I was hooked.I also slept with the light on for a week.In the many times I have seen this movie since I have never failed to notice how well it stands the test of time.The portrayal of the Count by Mr.Lee displays an elegance and nobility which indeed enhances the ferocity of the character.The combination of suspense,intensity and the talents of the sterling cast make this film just as fresh and exciting as it was in 1958.

The definitive Dracula and the definitive Hammer film! The new blu ray from Warner Archive is the best the film has ever looked or sounded. It has brilliant color and grain structure and feels like this is probably how the film look when originally projected on the big screen. Sure some special features (including the famous extra violence footage created for the Japanese release) would have been nice but the film itself looks fantastic and makes this bare bones disc (only a trailer is included) well worth the price!

'Horror of Dracula' is one of the great Hammer Film horror classics. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are smashing in this movie that I've seen several times in the Saturday afternoon horror matinee downtown as a teenager. It's classic!

Eiither you are a fan of the Universal horror releases or the Hammer films. If you have not developed a preference, then you should consider 'Horror of Dracula' as your initial venture into the genre. As a teen, I was thrilled & chilled by the late night TV fare. Christopher Lee was probably the best portrayer of the Count and Peter Cushing's Van Helsing has no equal in the role. This adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel more closely follows the story line than any other with the exception of the location not changing to England after the initial sequences featuring Jonathan Harker's visit to Castle Dracula. And although it took 8 years for a sequel, the sequels cannot match the original.
