Review

ROTTEN TOMATOES Score: 83% Dracula Prince of Darkness. Christopher Lee dons the evil Count's cloak once again after an 8-year hiatus for this first "authentic" sequel to Hammer Studios' Horror of Dracula (the literal 1960 follow-up Brides of Dracula did not feature Lee). The story begins when two stuffy vacationing couples make an ill-fated stopover at Castle Karlsbad in the Carpathian mountains -- despite the warnings of the mysterious Fr. Sandor (Andrew Keir) and the near-destruction of their coach when the terrified driver runs for his life. After a slightly tedious stretch, one of the men (Charles Tingwell) is sacrificed in a bloody Satanic ritual, orchestrated by the Count's loyal manservant Klove (Philip Latham) to bring the legendary vampire back to life. The revived Count immediately sets his sights on the man's wife (Barbara Shelley), making her his undead bride; the surviving pair seek refuge in Fr. Sandor's abbey, with the undead bloodsuckers in hot pursuit. This stylish and chilling production is imbued with Gothic atmosphere by director Terence Fisher (one of his last films for the studio)and remains one of the classier entries from Hammer's heyday. Also known as Revenge of Dracula. --Rottentomatoes.com

Good horror treatment as expected by the Hammer folks --Video-reviewmaster.com

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Hammer Horror Films For Under $10!!! March 11, 2013
Anyone who gives this set of Hammer Horror movies a low-grade is either not a fan or is just being petty. Millenium Entertainment is offering up 3 formerly out-of-print classics that were selling for well over $20 each for a used copy - all 3 for under 10 bucks!! Two sure-fire classics (Dracula Prince Of Darkness & Frankenstein Created Woman) are paired with one weird latter day Hammer entry (Seven Golden Vampires - more of a Kung Fu Movie with a Vampire backplot). This is supposedly just the tip of the iceberg as Millenium plans to release many more Hammer titles in new remastered prints on DVD & Bluray!

In early March 2013 Millenium Entertainment announced a distribution deal of Exclusive Media's library of Hammer Films - including special edition blu-rays as part of a multi-tiered marketing approach. While the UK have been getting Hammer blu-rays on a steady basis (albeit generally medicore to poor releases) here in America the pickings have been pretty slim. It's barely a month later and Millenium has already released a quickie barebones 3-film DVD set "at an affordable price to encourage the general public to join the Hammer fanbase" according to their press release. Sales figures of this DVD set are likely to be a gauge for future blu-rays. After considering the pre-order of a measly 8 bucks, the weight it may have on future releases, and the fact I still don't own Dracula: Prince of Darkness then this DVD set was a no-brainer. For the sake of this review I'll be referring to the LONG out print Anchor Bay DVDs, which haven't been distributed in over a decade and now command some pretty outrageous prices.

Unfortunately, being an apparent rushjob, this first release from Millenium has some drawbacks. The first thing that strikes me is the case insert - it's so plain and unattractive, clearly a 15 minute Photoshop job. Granted, this bears nothing on disc content but it helps illustrate the expedited manner this set was created. The arrangement is a bit awkward in that Dracula: POD has it's own single-sided disc and the other 2 films are on a double-sided "flipper" disc. There are no extras, not even trailers, so that is something the Anchor Bay DVDs have over this. All 3 films do feature English SDH subtitles though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice for the Price April 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
Here is the lowdown on the three movie Hammer set. I watched Dracula Prince of Darkness and it is the best I have ever seen the movie look. Gorgeous color and sharp picture. I am very impressed by this transfer. I spot checked the other two films and Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires appears to be taken from the same source that the Warner UK DVD is taken from, which is quite good. Frankenstein Created Woman opens with the Fox logo and has a Color by DeLuxe credit. The UK DVD of this title has far more vibrant color than this one does but at least this is anamorphic and somewhat sharper looking than the old Anchor Bay disc. Rating the quality of the transfers I would give Dracula Prince of Darkness five stars, Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires four stars, and Frankenstein Created Woman three stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF TIME COMPRESSION April 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
Considering the low price of this Milenium release, you may not mind that "The 7 Golden Vampires" is time compressed. I couldn't watch it. Both "Dracula, Prince of Darkness" and "Frankenstein Created Woman" have crisper images than their previous releases but the color is pale on the latter title. But if Dracula is the one you want, this is the best copy to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anamorphic Widescreen on Dracula May 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
Even if you have the Anchor Bay DVDs, you need this set if you are a Hammer fan. Reason is simple -- the Anchor Bay set for Dracula, Prince of Darkness was letterboxed, which means that it is basically full screen with black bars hard coded on the top and bottom, which means on a modern HD widescreen TV there are black bars on all four sides. The new release here is true anamorphic widescreen which means that the DVD expands to fill as much of the widescreen TV as possible (still bars on top and bottom as the aspect ratio is wider than the TV, but at least it fills to the left and right edges). For $7 it's worth the double dip even if you have the older DVDs just because of that. Until the US gets blu ray releases this is as good as we get and the price is very reasonable.

Under a "Hammer" imprint, this DVD delivers one CLASSIC Christopher Lee Dracula film, along with one noble (but failed) experiment ("Frankenstein Created Woman"), and an oddity that was released after Hammer's peak ("Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires," with John Forbes-Robertson (voice dubbed) in a role that had come to be associated with Lee). The real reason to purchase this one is "Dracula Prince Of Darkness." "Dracula" is on a single disc while the other films occupy a second two-sided disc.

The second in Hammer's Lee Dracula series, "Prince" opens with the closing shots of Dracula's destruction in the first film. We then meet a traveling party that, unknowingly, is on the worst trip of their lives. All of the Hammer classic elements are here, including their answer to Universal's "angry villagers" (the angry pub dwellers who go from friendly to agitated when learning that their visitors want to cross Dracula's stomping grounds).

You have a priest intent on destroying Dracula, and a unique element in this film...Dracula's servant, Klove (Philip Latham), whose sole purpose is to wait like a spider in the web for the unknowing victims that will allow him to bring his master back to life. Klove's wait is over. It is a particularly sardonic moment when Klove, ladling up bowls of soup for the travelers, tells them that his dead master told him to always keep the castle prepared and ready for "guests."

Much of the action takes place in, and around, Dracula's castle. It is basically the flypaper that traps and holds the travelers. Lee is especially brutal in this film, with many closeups of his blood-red eyes. I'm not going to offer spoilers here, but the erotic heat registers exceptionally high on this one, too.
