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.
I think we all know about my love affair with Hammer by now. I will watch anything I can get my hands on and they usually don't disappoint me. Even a 'bad' Hammer is, at least, fun. This one wasn't 'bad', it was just sort of blah. The movie looked great and the print was pristine but there was hardly any action. The focus was mainly on one woman in particular and she wasn't even bitten until about an hour into the film. It's always nice to see Lee, so I'm not sorry I watched this but if you want some excitement, just stare at the poster on your left. If you want some r e a l l y lethargic Hammer, watch this movie.
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…
WHAT WERE YOUR FAVORITE PARTS OF THE MOVIE?
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.
When his castle is exorcised, Dracula plots his revenge against the Monsignor who performed the rites by attempting to make the holy man's young niece his bride.
This is more like it. This movie has likable characters put into actual situations! In the first AND second half, no less. I love, love, love the sequence where Maria is climbing across the rooftops to Paul. Not only does it look great, but it didn't play out at all like I expected it to. It must be said: Christopher Lee is a beast in this one. He is truly brutally cold and evil. This is another gush-fest, I know, but honestly, I think I like this one more than the first. The only thing it is missing is Peter Cushing.
I love the poster to this one! Those two plasters and (Obviously). It gets a lot of criticism but I absolutely love it.
I love the tinting on each scene with the Count. It gives me tremendous satisfaction. Not sure why.
Anyway, Dracula Has Risen From The Grave is gorgeously shot, and has some amazing use of paintings. Such a fun entry in the Hammer Dracula franchise.
Highly entertaining vampire film, Dracula has Risen from the Grave is a well crafted feature from the folks at Hammer films, who deliver another highly gripping, terrifying vamp flick with Christopher Lee in the lead. I love the Hammer take on classic monster films, this being the fourth in the series, it’s a film that is gripping from the first frame onwards and offers fans everything that you want from a well crafted vampire picture. The film boasts impressive visuals and tension throughout that are standard elements ion the genre, but adds to the story by including new intricate ideas that seem to work well to expand on the mythos of the character. This is a solid film that is…
I love how they kill Dracula in this movie. The rest is pretty run-of-the-mill.
Nit best of Hammers Vampire films, but it certainly has the best Dracula death scene. Still better than most films made today...
My review -- this horror/dark/religious/romantic film title is now on DVD and all of the financial statistics are inconclusive to me based on the fact I couldn't find them. The basic storyline is this; Dracula is back for revenge against this little village [I am at least 80% sure that this film title had a previous installment based on the fact the characters and storyline continuously make insinuations or references to a previous installment.] But in fairness to me I can only really pick up Sir/CBE/RIP Christopher Lee film titles especially the Dracula film titles now and again. Because let's be honest they are somewhat expensive which they should be down to the fact they have legendary status and this…
This is the one where Dracula gets resurrected out of the ice, then they spend the next 45 minutes hanging out in a bar. Cool rooftops scenes and an awesome ending.
Yep! You guessed it, the old count is back, this time scaling rooftops of a small village intent on revenge for being an ice block for a year. Dracula has risen from the grave manages to maintain that level of fun that comes with most Hammer horror pictures. Arguably the most visually interesting of the film series, made in 1968 it also (given its the 60's) loves shots of cleavage, the kind good old Dracula can't help but admire. Lee remains engaging although the film's are beginning to follow a familiar pattern, it's minor quibbles aside its another entertaining sequel.
cloned from my '80s poster list, then trimmed and expanded, since i decided i'd like to have a list for…
