About the Movie
Every night for 600 years he rises from his coffin-bed to seek the warm blood he needs to keep himself alive! Investigating the death of his friend Jonathan Harker--apparently the victim of a bloodsucking vampire--Doctor Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) discovers a diary incriminating Count Dracula (Christopher Lee). But even as Van Helsing realizes the horrifying truth, Dracula stalks Harker's fiancée, Lucy (Carol Nash), trapping her tortured soul in the terrifying force of his hypnotic power--and only Van Helsing may be strong enough to save her by exorcising the Horror of Dracula.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Both director Terence Fisher as well as the cast have taken a serious approach to the macabre theme that adds up to lotsa tension and suspense.
Fresh: This Grand Guignol treatment bowled people over in the 50s, and it still yields some potent shocks.
Fresh: This Hammer classic will be good for a laugh, and some shivers.
Fresh: A Great British horror film with bite.
Horror Of Dracula
This is by far my favorite Dracula movie and Christopher Lee was by far the best (and most molevolent) Dracula. I can't wait until it's for sale. I hope itunes gets all the "Christopher Lee" Dracula movies.
The Horror of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing
An excellent version of Bram Stoker's novel, "Dracula". Jimmy Sangster who wrote the screenplay, also did "The Crawling Eye"(1958 - another excellent horrow film with Forrest Tucker!). The film is real scary. But the ending is superb!!! You cannot beat watching Cushing going after Lee, in their second film together from Hammer! One of the best in the genre!
Christopher Lee is probably the best Dracula ever! Next to Bela Lugosi of course.
