"Darkness Tolls" is actually a trio of classic horror movies, all of which star horror icon Christopher Lee. Of the three, my least favorite is Hammer Studios' "The Satanic Rites of Dracula" (1974, color) which marks Lee's last performance as Dracula, and is a sequel to Dracula A.D. 1972. If I'm not mistaken, the movie also has the alternate title of "Count Dracula and His Vampire Bride". Unfortunately, the movie is marred by an underwhelming script, and poor picture quality, the only saving grace being the pairing of horror greats Lee and Cushing (as Van Helsing). Set in 70s London, Cushing discovers that a reincarnated Dracula (thanks to satanic rites) is out to avenge himself on humanity, and has some interesting plans for Cushing's granddaughter (played by a young Joanna Lumley). Grainy picture quality aside, the dialogue is uninspired, and the story just failed to engage me, plus I am rather partial to the older, period Dracula movies, which were more atmospheric and reflected true Gothic horror.
"Horror Express" (1973, color) is quite a gem. Lee plays Prof. Alexander Saxton, an ambitious anthropologist who boards the Trans-Siberian Railway with an unusual object, a rare fossil that is kept hidden away in a crate, intriguing Dr. Wells (Peter Cushing), Saxton's professional rival. The bodies soon start piling up, all of whom have one thing in common - their eyes have all turned milky in color, and there's a red-eyed monster running around the train. Wells and Saxton soon discover what the creature is capable of, and try to put a stop to the horror. Apart from the bonus of watching Cushing and Lee together, viewers get treated to an appearance by Telly Savalas as a Cossack captain. This is a creepy period horror movie, high on atmosphere, and plenty of action.

Satanic Rites Of Dracula the last for christopher lee as dracula,not as good as the earlier dracula movies but no regret as long it was acted by lee and van helsing (peter cushing) will give 3 stars.

Horror hotel i found that the quality of the picture was not very clear but the movie was watchable.will also give 3 stars

Horror Express was good as the two great hammer icon lee and cushing was cast in this movie,believe without them the shows would have been boring.AAA+

The set has three movies in it with Christopher Lee. I know there alot of reviews saying the low quality but I think the movies are great. These are classic horror movies of the 1970's. If you like old classic vampire movies then this set is for you. This DVD, featuring a hologram cover, features 3 films starring Christopher Lee: The Satanic Rites of Dracula, Horror Express, and Horror Hotel. Also included are trivia, special features, and more.

Don't be fooled by the name or the price. This is a 3 movie collection all of them are of low video quality. The movies themselves are quite good once you get past the video quality.

The films are:
"Satanic Rites of Dracula" aka - Count Dracula and His Vampire Brides (1978)
"Horror Express"
"Horror Hotel" aka - "City of the Dead" which is the original uncut British version.

You'll be happier if you find these movies separately and better quality.

I found this in a supermarket for $1.99 and was intrigued by the B&W entry entitled "Horror Hotel" (the other films on Darkness Tolls are both in color). Turns out this was shown several times in the '70s on New York Channel 5's Creature Features program, and it certainly is a gem of atmosphere and mood. Using a somewhat common New-England-witch-haunting storyline ("Haunted Palace" and "Dunwich Horror" being two Midnite Movies titles that immediately come to mind), this nifty film rises above the crowd for its sets and cinematography, which make it must-see TV for any b-movie horror fan. The print is soft and grainy but watchable--certainly no worse than what you'd find on similarly priced budget discs from Alpha Video and other public domain distributors.

Of the two color titles, "Horror Express" is by far the better, overcoming its made-for-TV look and feel with an intriguing if somewhat implausible storyline and a wholly gratifying ending. On the other hand, Hammer's "Satanic Rites of Dracula" is a Bond-meets-vampire horror/spy thriller that's mostly forgettable, except for the occasional appearance of a topless blond nymph as the evil circle's sacrificial lass.
