Bram Stoker’s terrifying creation Dracula has appeared on screen many times, played by a vast range of actors. This enjoyably creepy Hammer horror from the 60s sees Christopher Lee in the role of the blood-sucking legend.
Four British tourists stumble upon an eerily empty castle while on a travelling holiday. Because this is a horror film, they act in the stupidest way possible, and willingly venture into the castle and become the guests of the newly resurrected Count Dracula. Expect a lot of screaming and bright red blood gushing from people’s throats. Such fun!
The new blu-ray release has been given a new restoration, and looks stunning in full high definition.
Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), directed by Terence Fisher, is released on blu-ray disc and DVD in the UK by Studio Canal, Certificate 15.
