i like this film, but i always think it could be better. kronos himself is a rather dull and not particularly likeable character, but is more than made up for by the splendid grost. best scene is the spaghetti western homage where kronos dispatches an ian hendry led trio of thugs. there is also not enough horror, though to be fair the film was only an aa cetificate. however, kronos is quite different from any other hammer film, and the locations make anice change from black park.

the greatest mistake regarding this film is total lack of any type of attempt to integrate dracula into acontemporary setting.the count yorga films,the night stalker and even the blacula films,all do this succesfully.however,ad 72 does have some inventive moments and is certainly not dull.the ridiculous slang of the so called teenagers who all look like they went to fenn street school,is at times most amusing.for me then a definetly guilty pleasure.

gustav the cat.what a pointless waste of time.the only good thing about it is dennis price.how and why this film ever saw the light of day is beyond me.possibly the ultimate example of hammer on the decline.

I grew up watching the film to Woman in Black with my dad. Its going to be fantastic to see a new and fresh version of this classic story! I am also excited to see Daniel Radcliffe step out of his Harry Potter role which he has quite literally grown out of. He is really looking mature and I am wishing him all the best.

One of the best Hammer horrors with Peter Cushing outstanding as the baron and James Bernard providing one of his best Hammer scores.

If the remake is done well, the film has the potential to be huge. I saw the original when it was first released (& have a copy on video). I recently re-read the book which is masterfully written. In spite of being familiar with the story - read the book, seen the film and the play - I am still - still, to this day - nervous watching it alone at night. Am very much looking forward to seeing Hammer's take on it, and Dan Radcliffe as Kipps. The story is strong & stands on its own, please keep any special effects to a minimum.
