Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Freddie Francis creates some admirable atmosphere and tension in the first half-hour, but ultimately reduces the film to an inconsequential splurge of arbitrary religious and sexual motifs."
‑ , Time Out
"The film props itself up mostly on [director] Francis's often-thrilling visual sense, and the visceral impact of the first and final scenes."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"It's more camp than anything else; it's destined to provide more laughs at parties than thrills alone."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"It has a nice look, but it's nothing new."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Christopher Lee's death-by-crucifix ending stands as one of the most iconic gothic images ever recorded in cinematic vampire lore."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"... former cinematographer Freddie Francis does a spectacular job in the director's chair, milking every scene for maximum visual impact ..."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Another Hammer/Christopher Lee horror goodie."
‑ Steve Crum, Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers
"For starters, Lee's eyes are frequently and unnervingly bloodshot whenever his sexual drive begins to rev into gear."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"This was the fourth of the Hammer Dracula films, and it's a bore."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It's still a very solid Hammer Dracula film, but the slow, downward spiral away from quality would continue with the next entry in the series ..."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"There's just not enough of Lee's Dracula."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
