As someone who has, to date, purchased "Dracula, Prince of Darkness" in FOUR separate versions over the years (starting with the Anchor Bay VHS tape in the late 1990's), I think it goes without saying that I'm a fan. And while I don't think it's necessarily the best of the studio's Dracula films, I can tell you that it has never looked better.

As you will learn in the all-new 30-minute documentary on the disc, this is a new restoration of the film. I watched it on a mid-range 3D Blu-ray player and high-end 70" Smart TV. And while the image still doesn't quite compare with a new film shot in high definition, the picture is incredibly detailed for a film of this vintage. One can really appreciate the level of detail, and the use of color, in the castle scenes. The film's highlight--the Count's rather gory resurrection scene--really had me on the edge of my seat. James Bernard's simple but highly effective score adds much to the scene as well.

The aforementioned documentary features interviews with stars Barbara Shelley and Francis Matthews. Both have fond memories of the film and its director, the great Terence Fisher. Carryover features from previous releases include a cast commentary, and an interesting, if somewhat amateurish, episode of the "World of Hammer" series focusing on Christopher Lee. Disappointingly, the "restored trailer" is NOT the same as previously available, but a short combo promo for this film plus "The Plague of the Zombies," that actually doesn't show any footage from either film!

Those who have the old Anchor Bay DVD will want to hang onto it for the extra features NOT repeated here, including a few minutes of on-set "home movies," and a different World of Hammer episode titled "Dracula and the Undead.

Format: Blu-ray
I watched the Blu-ray last night. I compared it to the Anchor Bay dvd. Greens much improved and looked very good. Blues, reds and purples look nice, also. Flesh tones seem a bit washed out but, hey, it's a vampire movie. Some of the interior shots look very warm, almost like there was a light amber cast over the scenes but not too distractive. Considering this was shot in HammerScope, using a half frame of film instead of the whole frame (were they really that cheap?) the restoration looks very, very good. Losing half the resolution helps explain why the film never really looked liked Hammer's best. Somewhere along the way that film picked up a 2.0 dolby (RIP) stereo track. Sound emitted from all speakers but I could not detect any real separation. The 5.1 tracks on Anchor Bay's Quatermass and the Pit and The Devil Rides Out sound better but it is by no means bad. There is one shot where Diana enters the castle and is approached by the now vampire Helen. The reds and blues are beautiful. Unless big bucks are spent on further work, this is the best the film will look for a while. Overall, I was very, very happy with this disc. Lots of extras, too. Hammer fans will be pleasantly surprised.

This is a very good film from Hammer. My issue is with the print they used for the anchor bay DVD release. The color is off. When they have shown this film on Turner Classic Movies, they show a different print. The color is deeper and richer. If you check the end of the film, the print used on cable was originally distributed by Warner-Pathe. The print on the DVD was originally a 20th Century Fox Distribution.
Anchor Bay(or SOMEONE) should release the Warner-Pathe version on DVD. It is a big improvement visually.

Format: DVD
This is the third and best instalment in Hammer's Dracula-series, it ignores the second one and continues where the first one left off. Actually, knowledge of any of the other movies is not required at all, each one of them a ritual reviving the important elements, this one being the most ceremonial. The main theme seems to be the disproportion between rationality and sexuality, the former represented by Victorian morals, the latter by the vampire, stoic nobleman and hissing animal in one, he comes off as a diabolic high-priest of passion. Thus the beautiful Barbara Shelley, who enters Dracula's castle together with her boring husband, is transformed from uptight pedant to sexy vamp in lingerie, the actress mastering both roles accordingly. The scene in which she begs the heroine to let her in because "it's cold out here", sniveling like a child, but truly menacing at the same time, is one of the iconographic highlights of the genre.

Format: DVD
Eight years after Christopher Lee first donned his cape as the Lord of the Undead, Hammer Studios released this second entry in its series of "Dracula" films. "Dracula -- Prince Of Darkness" premiered in 1966 and provides an ample amount of blood-curdling scares and Gothic touches that places it right next to its predecessor, "Horror Of Dracula" (1958), as a fine example of how a horror movie should look.

Christopher Lee's portrayal of the king of all vampires in "Prince Of Darkness" is every bit as chilling and effective as his first Dracula performance in "Horror". And the "resurrection" scene (in which Dracula rises from his ashes) is a most unsettling and disturbing scene, especially given the eerie-looking actor that was utilized to perform the resurrecting. This faithful "servant" of Dracula looks like he, himself, would have made a fairly convincing "Count Dracula" in his own right.

This film was shot in color, and uses light and shadow (and the color red) to its distinct advantage during the course of its ninety-minute feature running time.

This double-sided DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment (released in 1998) offers up a Widescreen version of the film (2:35:1 aspect ratio), with a Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack (in both English and French).

Side 1 of this disc contains the movie; while the opposite side has a few interesting Bonus supplements. Here's a brief look at the Special Features.....................

>> Feature-length Audio Commentary Track, with four actors who starred in "Prince Of Darkness", including Christopher Lee.

>> Theatrical Trailers (two for this film).
