Not my favorite of the Hammer Dracula series, but not anywhere near unworthy. I love how they play with the landscape, the colors and the matte paintings as… More

Let's try this again. A review I wrote earlier s eems to have been lost. An Atheist hero is rare. Dracula (Lee) fights the Catholic church more explicitly.… More
