Dracula, Prince of Darkness
Directed by Terence Fisher
Two English couples are stranded while on holiday in the Carpathian mountains. A Driverless carriage appears to come to their rescue, taking them to a sinister castle that appears on no map. They reluctantly accept the hospitality of a mysterious character called Klove. That night one of the tourists, Alan decides to investigate the castle and discovers a stone sarcophagus. He is murdered by Klove who mixes the traveller's blood with ashes and a familiar shape begins to form - that of Count Dracula.
Dracula is resurrected, preying on four unsuspecting visitors to his castle.
Cast: Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Richard Pasco
Christopher Lee is great silent Dracula.
A return to the classical era of british gothic horror
A Classic 👌
Classic. Perhaps not the best of Hammer's Dracula films, but still well worth watching. Lee is a force of nature, as always, and it's wonderfully moody and atmospheric. Dracula's resurrection is a creepy highlight.
An awesome old school horror from the masters
