Probably Lee's Best Dracula

  • Nov 20, 2003
I remember being scarred out of my wits seeing this movie in the theater as a kid. This is Lee in his most convincing Dracula role. One of the first to have the "red eyes" (I think it was added to the film prints because I don't think they wore colored contact lenses back then). Also, has a lot of "ketchup spurting" like blood especially in the final scenes.

About this movie


Dracula Has Risen from the Grave is a 1968 British horror film directed by Freddie Francis for Hammer Films. It stars Christopher Lee as Count Dracula, with support from Rupert Davies, Veronica Carlson, Barry Andrews, Barbara Ewing, Ewan Hooper and Michael Ripper.

The world of the film is arguably far darker and more ambiguous than the world created by director Terence Fisher for the previous three films in the Dracula series.

Dracula Has Risen from the Graveis the third Christopher Lee Dracula film from Hammer Studios. While trying to rid the former Dracula's Castle of evil after the mysterious death of a local girl, the Monsignor inadvertently raises the dark prince from his deathly slumber. Once awaken from the grave, the parched prince only has one thing on his mind, the yummy taste of blood which he fiendishly extracts from the local maidens. Though a little weak in plot,Dracula Has Risen from the Gravestill comes off as a strong vampire film, delivering the goods on the gothic visuals, eerie sets, and Lee's performance.--Rob Bracco
