Dracula: Prince of Darkness 1966 ★★★

Alan Kent: «You forget about all of this in the morning, you'll see.»

Hard to dislike, which must surely be among the most quintessential Hammer horrors. Christopher Lee as Dracula is hard to beat, many have tried and very few have succeeded.

On the other hand, surely Terence Fisher was past his prime when he made this. Seems like he knew that his 1958 version couldn't be topped anyway. It isn't poor, it's just not good either with several continuity errors. The «We will have to ride all night!» scene takes about 10 seconds and in full daylight. Mostly charming though - I love the Britishness of it all even in the dreariest of situations, you can't really go wrong Victorian dressed in the Carpathian countryside.
