Whilst vacationing in the Carpathian Mountain, two couples stumble across the remains of Count Dracula's castle. The Count's trusted servant kills one of the men, suspending the body over the Count's ashes so that the blood drips from the corpse and saturates the blackened remains. The ritual is completed, the Count revived and his attentions focus on the dead man's wife who is to become his partner; devoted to an existence of depravity and evil.
There'll be no morning for us.
This sequel looses Peter Cushing and his character of Dr. Van Helsing, but regains Christopher Lee in the role of Dracula. While I love Cushing in these films, it seems to be a fair tradeoff to regain the character of Dracula for your newest Dracula sequel. It doesn't retcon or reboot anything however and acknowledges the fact that the good old Count is supposed to be dead and that's where lies the great little horror tale that unfolds.
As a stand alone film this is a great little horror yarn, but I imagine people expecting it to showcase Christopher Lee as Dracula will be disappointed. Most of the story is about how…
Though Dracula: Prince of Darkness is a better made sequel, I much prefer Hammer's ludicrous 70s Dracula output like Scars of Dracula and Dracula A.D. 1972. Still Dracula: Prince of Darkness entertains. It has everything you'd want from a Hammer flick: an ominous castle, a creepy human sidekick for Dracula, pompous rich couples not taking the advice of locals, bright red blood, and Christopher Lee. With Terence Fisher in the director's chair, it's pretty much a guaranteed winner. I love the way Fisher uses colour and only moves the camera when he needs to. He's truly Hammer's finest director. Lee is quite terrifying in this entry with his bloodshot eyes and animalistic portrayal of Dracula, though it's frustrating how long…
Ten minutes ago we were stranded in the cold, miles away from anywhere. Now we're warm. We're going to be fed. And if that man's master is anything like I think he's going to be, we're going to be entertained as well.
Even though it took 8 years for Christopher Lee to return as Dracula, Hammer Films still accomplished something that Universal Pictures never did and that's make a proper sequel to their Dracula with it's original star. Of course Hammer would go beyond just that as Lee ended up playing the Count five more times for the studio.
Even by today's standards Lee's take on Dracula is beyond what you usually see. He makes him look crazed…
We've seen it all before, but this seems almost like the perfecting of a formula for Hammer, and as a fan, this makes for a very appealing film. This mute, bestial, red-eyed reconstitution of Dracula, may not get much screen time, but Christopher Lee makes every second, ahem, Count. And of course we get all the other gothic trappings that make a classic Hammer Horror. It may not be one of the best, but it's one of my favorites from the studio.
I'm no expert in anatomy, but I'm pretty sure the heart isn't located around the lower left ribcage
The Prince doesn't make an appearance until 45 minutes into the story, so a large part of this sequel to Hammer's Dracula is a slow burn set up for Dracula's return. The build up is surprisingly tense, Terence Fischer taking his usual care with lighting, composition, costumes and props. The four upper class twits who ignore all the warnings of the locals about entering Castle Dracula are made sympathetic by the suspense and violence of their demise: no matter how privileged they are, they don't deserve the terrifying evil which befalls them. Christopher Lee makes a welcome return as Dracula. He doesn't speak a line of dialogue, so his performance is all in the bloodshot eyes, his bearing and gestures.…
This one takes forever to get going. Dracula doesn't show up until about halfway through the movie, but it does pick up a bit in the second half. However, Peter Cushing's Van Helsing is sorely missed. Still, Christopher Lee is great as ever, even with no lines. In fact, he comes across as a bit weirder for it. His death, unfortunately, is not nearly as spectacular as in the first film, and the movie just kind of ends afterward.
Definitely not as good as The Devil Rides Out, but still a grand time. Christopher Lee doesn't say a word, but he's still a delight to watch. The Hammer formula is already showing itself, but the execution is so charming and quintessentially British that you can forgive it. The final battle on the ice is an all-timer
the goddamn village every film: 'well now he's definitely not haunting our asses anymore!'
also A+ to Christopher Lee's hissing and complete silence
A neat & tidy film with no ounce of fat on it. Loved those little bits of red lighting & the lurid blood, as well as the sequence where Dracula re-materialises out of the blood & ash mixture. Fun ending too.
Effective, well crafted film, Dracula: Prince of Darkness manages to keep the momentum of the first two films going. Here, the story is well written out and delivers some genuine chills and moments that make the film what it is. The acting is very good, and is elevate by a very good story that grabs your attention. The plot delivers some thrills throughout, and what makes this film good is the use of atmosphere, which is prominent throughout. The acting is very good, and the plot moves at a quick pace, which never has a dull moment due to Christopher Lee’s magnetic screen presence. This is a strong genre film, and it is a film that ranks as one of…
Classic film, my personal favorite of the Hammer Dracula films.
My parents saw this at drive-in and they thought I was asleep in backseat! Very impressionable for a child. I blame them (and reading Stokers Dracula in 6th grade) for my love of all things Vampire.
This direct sequel to the original Hammer Dracula follows a group of English tourists who become embroiled in the vampire's schemes.
Lee is perfect in the title role, dialogue free but dripping with menace and downright evil rage.
The supporting cast are all great, the design superb and the score thrilling.
One of Hammer's best.
