|Christopher Lee, Linda Hayden, Anthony Corlan, Peter Sallis & others. Peter Sasdy, director|
Making his fourth appearance as Dracula, Christopher Lee hits his stride in this 1970 Hammer Films production. Collecting Hargood (Geoffrey Keen), Paxton (Peter Sallis), and Secker (John Carson) from a brothel, Lord Courtley (Ralph Bates) manipulates them into performing a dark ritual to resurrect Dracula; when the men kill Courtley in a struggle, the vampire rises again and vows revenge against them and their families as well, including Paxton's lovely young daughter, Lucy (Isla Blair).
"A Must! [This film] is not only one of best in the Christopher Lee Dracula series but one of Hammer's best overall productions."—Slant Magazine
