Three distinguished English gentlemen accidentally resurrect Count Dracula, killing a disciple of his in process. The Count seeks to avenge his dead servant, by making the trio die in the hands of their own children.
When Castle Dracula is exorcised by the Monsignor, it accidentally brings the Count back from the dead. Dracula follows the Monsignor back to his hometown, preying on the holy man's beautiful niece and her friends.
Last of the Hammer Frankenstein films, this one deals with the Baron hiding out in an insane asylum, so that he may continue his experiments with reanimating the dead, along with inmate Dr. Helder, who has been institutionalized for conducting such experiments.Written by
The UK DVD from DD Video was originally the same as the USA R-rated print but was then corrected to reinsert the teeth clamping sequence. However, all other cuts as described above remain. The German R2 DVD, which contained an English language track, restores all of the cuts except for the small trim to the close-up of the throat wound and was, for some years, the most complete version of the film available on DVD. The film was eventually fully restored and was released on DVD in the UK in 2014. See more »
I enjoyed watching this film very much, first off i am a Hammer Films fan of all of the horror creatures, not just Frankenstein, although it is my favorite creature. Peter Cushing was excellent in this one. David Prowse, aka Darth Vader did very well as the monster i thought. i love the idea of the film also,, a sanitarium, what a perfect place for the Baron to practice. Von Helder character was also very good, in fact probably stole the show for me. I also liked the character of Angel, and the Director as well, the film has it's funny moments as well, not to much that i didn't like about the film,, the brain transplant scene, well could have been better, and a few other scenes , but hey that's minor stuff, all in all i thought this was a great film to end the Hammer Films collection of Frankenstein, and i would recommend this to all horror fans,, and Peter Cushing fans also.
