Product Description

Three elderly distinguished gentlemen are searching for some excitement in their boring borgoueis lives and gets in contact with one of count Dracula's servants. In a nightly ceremony they restore the count back to life. The three men killed Dracula's servant and as a revenge, the count makes sure that the gentlemen are killed one by one by their own sons.

"Drac" is back once again in this fourth installment of Hammer's Dracula films starring Christopher Lee. Under the guidance of Satanic Priest Lord Courtley, three middle-aged professionals seek to add more spice to their love lives by dabbling in rituals to the Dark Prince. After drinking the blood of the Count, the pleasure seekers kill Lord Courtley, inadvertently awakening Dracula who is dead set on avenging his Priest's murder. Though not on par with Hammer's original "Horror of Dracula", Taste the Blood of Dracula does take all the key elements from the original (beautiful heroines, picturesque settings, gothic ambiance, and Lee as the "Count") and somewhat successfully "cheeses" it up for audiences of the '70s. Those wishing to expand their cheesy '70s Dracula experience will find Morrissey's "Hammeresque" Blood for Dracula a nice compliment. By all counts Taste the Blood of Dracula is a fun, campy romp --Rob Bracco

5.0 out of 5 stars RESTORED Version of this Hammer Classic!!! May 1, 2004
Format:DVD
When I was a kid, I thought this movie had too little Dracula...but thanks to Warner DVD there is now more than ever! (Still not enough, but we gotta take what we can get!!)
Issued without any formal "fanfare," this release restores approximately FOUR minutes of footage never before seen in the US versions! Throw away those old videos!!! This DVD presents "Taste the Blood of Dracula" the way it was meant to be seen! Originally rated "GP" in the US, it's now rated "R" on the package. (Granted, these days it would probably be a PG-13.) Among the shots restored are: Dracula's bright red blood turning to dust in the beginning, extended "brothel" scenes featuring (very brief) topless nudity, and an extension of the sequence where Dracula attacks Lucy! The "revenge" deaths (and the death of Lord Courtley) are extended with bloody close-ups. (Most striking is the death of Paul and Lucy's father, as he is "staked" by Lucy and Alice. Before, we only got a quick glimpse. Now, the sequence's original impact is intact!!) But the best aspect of the restoration are shots of Dracula himself, seen through the eyes of the dying men! VERY IMPRESSIVE!! Thank you Warner DVD, for a job well done!! (Now, can you go back and do the same for "Horror of Dracula???" PLEASE?????)

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the title February 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The fourth Christpher Lee Dracula film is a definite improvement over the previous two. Three respected men have a secret society where they partake of sin weekly. The men run into a young hell-raiser (Ralph Bates) who tells them he can give them an ultimate adventure and then proceeds to drink the blood of Dracula, the three men kill him out of fear. Dracula then appears out of the ashes of the dead man and vows revenge on the three who killed his follower. Christopher Lee is not given enough to do and does not come into the film until about half an hour into it, but the film still finds a way to work. The plot is average, but the quick pace and timely shocks help this film a great deal. The supporting cast does well, ecspecially Bates(in his Hammer debut) and John Carson. The ending is not one of the best, but the road to it is exciting and well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars They taste his blood and the horror begins! May 3, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After recently watching the film Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968), I was certainly curious as to how they managed to bring him back for Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970), the third installment of the Hammer/Lee Dracula series. I mean, the guy dissolved away to practically nothingness, but then, I guess matter can never really be destroyed, only changed into different forms. The film, directed by Peter Sasdy, who also did Countess Dracula (1970), starts off by basically rehashing the final scenes of Dracula has Risen from the Grave, and we find a portly merchant finding the remains of Dracula's corpse, his cloak, signet ring, cloak clasp, and red powder that is supposed to be Dracula's blood. We then meet of a group of three wealthy, respectable, older men who form a small group that participates in a little hanky panky on the side, and have become bored with their usual routine. They seek out the assistance of a younger man, one with noble lineage who was cut off from his family due to his predilections for the occult. This younger man convinces the trio to cough up the dough for the remains of Dracula, in the hopes of performing some sort of ritual, with the notion of bringing forth pleasures and such none of the men could ever conceive.

The ritual, which takes place in an abandoned church well off the beaten path, begins, and involves mixing fresh blood with the powdered blood of Dracula (which creates quite the oozing visceral cocktail), and then drinking this new combination. The three older men understandably balk at the idea of drinking this noxious concoction, and challenge the brash younger man to drink it, to which he calls them cowards and does, with interesting effects.

3.0 out of 5 stars TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA April 24, 2001
By Anthony
Format:VHS Tape
I rented this film some time ago, and I had sort of mixed fellings for it. Some parts were a bit of a letdown, but other sequences worked quite well. When a devil worshipper named Courtley (Ralph Bates) and a trio of high society Victorian England thrill seekers attempt to ressurrect Dracula by drinking his blood, Courtley chokes on it, forcing the others to drop their cups and beat him to death. Dracula is reborn, using his disciple's corpse. Dracula then proceeds to take vengance on Courtley's killers by killing them. With the help of one thrill seeker named Secker, a courageous young man out to free his girlfiend from Dracula's hypnosis, ends the vampire's terror. The plot was somewhat slow and unoriginal. Lee gives his usual sinister performance, and his scenes are the best in the film. By the way, Lee originally refused to do this film. Ralph Bates was enlisted as Dracula, but at the last minute, Lee was convinced to play Dracula. And of course, the role of Courtley was given to young Ralph Bates. This film can be pretty enjoyable. Fans of the series should definitely get this film! If you are interested in starting on viewing the Hammer Dracula series, watch them in order. They all have a sense of continuity and order matters!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Hammer film.
Dracula is brought back to life by the rich and powerful. The hypocrisy is so obvious in the subplot that you can't wait to see it dually attacked and supported by Dracula.
