Sure, Christopher Lee might've been tired with the role of Dracula by this time- who wouldn't? Lee and this series in general milked its original feel for all it was worth and then some, and now set to conquer the modern world. Peter Cushing, in particular, seems invigrorated and enthused at playing Van Helsing.
The plot sees Dracula revived as a billionaire industrialist recluse who only works by night. Van Helsing & company get word of strange rituals being held, and investigate. The find out human sacrifices take place for Count Dracula, who has also gotten hold of a mutant strain of the Bubonic plague. His Four Horsemen for the Apocalypse include Van Helsing, who is captured, buy typically one of the three others chickens out, sacrificing himself for the good of mankind. Dracula needs the plague to end his own life and doom of immortality. We get a strange, dull, but unpredictable and rather original ending from the thorns of Christ. Also, Dracula has several brides keeping him company, and again Jessica Van Helsing is his next bride to be.
I liked this a lot, and I also like Dracula A.D. 1972.

Hammer film's Satanic Rites of Dracula is the final Christopher Lee role as Dracula in the Hammer series. The movie sets Dracula in the modern world (set a few years after Dracula A.D.1972) with the great Peter Cushing as his antagonist. I loved this movie and thought it a brilliant conclusion to the Hammer line. Dracula has been revived into the modern world and is functioning as a reclusive wealthy industrialist set on introducing a deadly plague into the world. Dracula is obsessed with taking revenge on the Van Helsing decendents and intends to use them as pawns in his diabolical plan. This film has somewhat of a James Bond feel yet maintains the the mystery and suspense of previous Hammer incarnations.

Works on every level that DRACULA A.D. 1972 did'nt. Vastly under rated, This up-dated setting has a weary Count Dracula bent on ending his own exiestence as well as that of humanity by releasing a deadly mutated form of Bubonic Plague. Fast paced and featureing a seldom seen way to keep Dracula powerless in the eerie climax set in a dark forest. Peter Cushing as Van Helsing and Christopher Lee as the Lord of the Un-Dead, who could ask for anything more? Superb transfer adds to the it's enjoyment. My only reason for not giving the movie 5 stars is the Lack of the Quality in the Movie Soundtrack. Why was'nt James Bernard used?

It's true that Hammer's Dracula DID need to move out of the 19th century for the sake of refreshing the plot. While it could have been better, it came out quite good in my opinion. The older films were very good atmospherically, but lacked originality. This movie has that. The Black Plague plot was really a great twist, though it might have made a better ending if Dracula had won! One problem though, these movies take too long to introduce Dracula. Especially this one since it didn't have the atmosphere of the other films, though it was great when Dracula did show up! As for the DVD I bought, it was only 6.99, though it had almost no extras. Just biographies on Lee and Cushing and a quiz. I don't recall the company, but it was not anchor bay. It was Widescreen, but I don't know if it was a "fake" widescreen like the Anchor Bay one supposedly is. All in all though, I was pleased. Just hope I didn't get ripped off with the Fake Widescreen.

The final 'Dracula' movie from Hammer Films, it's not quite as good as previous efforts and budget constraints are painfully evident. The premise is just as appealing to me as it was when I first saw this film nearly 20 years ago now--it can be summarized as Dracula Meets The Avengers, as the vampire lord plans to unleash a deadly plague on the Earth--although I think Dracula's death is probably the most embarrasing any vampire has ever suffered.
Peter Cushing shines as brightly as ever, although Christopher Lee seems a bit tired in the film. It might be a reflection of Dracula's own mindset, but it's more likely the actor's disastifaction with the role shining through. The scene with the vampire brides of Dracula rising from their caskets and surrounding one of the main characters remains intensely frightning to me.

This has to be the worst of the Lee-Cushing Hammer Draculas. One has to wonder if they had a film - lame - and they said - HEY lets put Lee in his cape in here and we will make money. Idiots! Sorry, I love Lee, Cushing and the other Dracula films but Hammer was in it for the bucks here and nothing else. The fact it was released under various titles tells you something, Satanic was one, but there was "Dracula is Dead and Well and Living in London" or uninspired "Count Dracula and his Bride". I mean that is ALL they could come up with?
Sequel to A.D., charming Joanna Lumley takes over from Stephanie Beacham as Van Helsing's granddaughter. Cushing is back as well. So bad it's sort of good...lol. Count Dracula decides to wipe out mankind with a super-plague so he can finally die? Well, I am sure they thought it sounded good on paper.
Of interest to Lee-Cushing fans, but others will yawn.
