Dracula Has Risen from the Grave
He lives! They die! Christopher Lee as the fanged undead.
In the shadow of Castle Dracula, the Prince of Darkness is revived by blood trickling from the head-wound of an unconscious priest attempting exorcism. And once more fear and terror strikes Transylvania as the undead Prince of Darkness stalks the village of Keineneburg to ensnare victims and satisfy his evil thirst.
Like a stained glass window if we worshiped Dracula instead of Christ.
There is a girl...
Christohper Lee returns as Count Dracula and this time he actually has dialogue as apposed to his last outing in Dracula: Prince of Darkness. Meanwhile Freddie Francis steps in to replace Gothic horror maestro Terence Fisher for directing duties and does more then hold his own. Lee and Francis manage to capture the same tone and atmosphere established in the previous films with ease.
The script written by Anthony Hinds does have slight problems though as it recycles a lot of elements from the previous films featuring Dracula. While the characters might be different, the main story still features the Count being infatuated with a damsel, here played by Veronica Carlson, while her lover battles…

The Dracula parts.
WHAT CHANGES WOULD YOU MAKE TO IMPROVE THE MOVIE?
More Dracula parts.
En plan programa doble, y siguiendo con el homenaje que le quería dedicar a Christopher Lee, me puse después de su primer "Dracula", ésta (tercer papel de Dracula de Lee y cuarta de la serie ya que en la segunda no salía Dracula, aunque sí Van Helsing) donde se le enfrenta un sacerdote y el novio de la sobrina de éste. Ayudando a Dracula tenemos un sacerdote miedoso y borrachuzo.
Dentro de los esquemas previsibles, tiene sus momentos, aunque me quedo con el detalle de que el héroe joven es un ateo al que las circunstancias no le obligan a renunciar a sus ideas, algo que me rompió bastante los esquemas para bien.
He sure has.
Rad poster, though I can't help but feel it belongs to a different film. Maybe it's the band-aids, which are a cute touch for a vampire movie poster, but if I'm not mistaken those weren't invented until the 1920s or so and this is set earlier in the 20th century. Not a big deal, but I guess I was imagining Dracula returning to strike fear into the hearts of a more modern society. As it is, it's gothic horror with amped up sexual and religious tension — too bad it's such an inconsequential bore most of the time. Christopher Lee as Count Dracula is a formidable presence, naturally, but there isn't enough of him... while there's a bit too much…
Awesome Hammer Lee Dracula flick and one of the all time great movie posters.
Not terrible and not amazing...fun twist in a preacher being the slave of Dracula...again I really wish Lee was better used
"Dracula Can't Get Back Into His House"
Happy birthday to meeeee.
"You don't go to church?!"
An unremarkable entry into Hammer's Dracula series, 'Dracula Has Risen From the Grave' nonetheless offers a reasonable dose of Hammer's patented "gothic baroque-ness". And hey, if it's not baroque, don't fix it!
... I'm sorry.
MY THREE WORDS
Generic, unremarkable, abrupt.
This movie proves that you can make a good horror/vampire movie and only be rated G. True if it was rated today, I bet it would be PG-13, but who cares! All you need to know its good and Christopher Lee is fantastic as Dracula.
Another Hammer bluray that I had to check out. And yes, it looks amazing too. So much fun revisiting these. Been too long.
