This is a superb sequel to the original Dracula. The ever-excellent Peter Cushing takes a while to show up but when he does this film shifts into top gear. The plot involving a beautiful young woman travelling to Transylvania on her own (natch). to take up a post teaching at a girls school and her meeting with Baron Meinster and his (far more sinister) mother is par for the course but some of the touches here are genuinely spooky - padlocks fall from a locked coffin only to land on the floor still locked - or the creepy scene where the Baron's old nanny lies on top of a fresh grave and encourages the new vampire from her grave. Great stuff.

In my opinon not one of Hammer finest hours...`and that`s despite the fact it has a great cast.

Has to be one of the most underrated of the many, many Frankenstein films that have been made over the years. I like it even better than the Curse of Frankenstein, and would put it in the same league as Universal's first two films. The 'Dr.' really emerges as the monster here, tying it to the book in way many films miss.

It has always been frustrating that there has never seemed to be a genuine UK DVD release of this great film. Just imports from Germany seem to be available. Perhaps one day there will be a blu-ray edition.

Critics trashed The Old Dark House but I like it and it's one of my favorite films.

Easily the best out of The Mummy movies and maybe the best Hammer film. Not only is the Hammer "style" out in full force during this movie but but the acting, sets and, most importantly, the pace are 2nd to none. Christopher Lee coming out of the muddy waters is downright iconic. You can really see where some of todays directors get their “unstoppable foe” from as this mummy gets shot, stabbed and shot again… and still keeps coming.
I’m hoping that Hammer brings this to US Blu Ray while Lee can still do any kind of extras he can. There are very few horror icons left and it would be a shame if we couldn’t get his word on things.
