"More Blood, Please"
Country: United Kingdom
Director: Terence Fisher
Starring: Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Michael Gough, Melissa Stribling
Horror of Dracula is the first of many Hammer Horror Dracula films, starring Christopher Lee as Dracula, often featuring his best friend Peter Cushing as his nemesis Dr. Van Helsing. Horror of Dracula tell us once again the famous story by Bram Stoker, about Count Dracula, a vampire that lives on blood and has to carry around his coffin and the earth he was buried in, in order to continue his haunted life. He has killed two of Dr. Van Helsing's friends. Van Helsing who have studied vampires for years, is about to find out how he can stop the monster once and for all.
Horror of Dracula is a pretty decent horror film. Nothing scary, really. Except for the music. I really liked the performances. Christopher Lee does a great Dracula of course, and Peter Cushing does his Sherlock Holmes like character with so much charm and professionalism. But it might be too much British manners, and the movie drags a little because of that. But otherwise it's an alright midnight horror flick, but not a special one. Thumbs up.
