Seems like people either love or hate this particular entry into the Hammer Dracula line of films. I, myself, enjoyed it very much, and would recommend it to anyone interested in the vampire genre.
Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1969) has Christopher Lee reprising his role as the ultimate blood-sucking creature of the night, which is kind of strange as in the last film, Dracula, Prince of Darkness (1966), he was destroyed...or so we thought. The film takes place a year after the last film, as Monsignor Ernest Muller (Rupert Davies) visits the small village near Dracula's no empty castle to see how things are getting along. Well, things aren't getting along too well as the Monsignor finds the church empty and in a rather poor state of housekeeping. Finding the priest at the local bar, he learns that the villagers believe that while Dracula may be dead, his castle projects an aura of evil, casting a malignant shadow of evil on the town. The Monsignor decides the only course of action is to trek up to the castle, say a prayer of exorcism, and place a fairly large cross at the doorway, expelling the curse forever. Taking the priest with him, the two begin a long and arduous journey up the mountain, but, as they near the castle, the priest balks from fear, and the Monsignor continues on alone. He reaches the castle, says the prayer, and places the cross (the result of both actions cause a rather freakish lighting storm...good thing he rid himself of that big, metal cross). Meanwhile, the priest, who remained behind, starts freaking out, and begins to stumble down the mountain, trips, cracks his head open, and lands on and cracks a pool of ice, one which contains the body of Dracula, and begins to bleed onto the ice, to which the blood revives the dark, yet frozen, one.

"Dracula Has Risen from the Grave" opens to the sounds of James Bernard's evocative, ominous main musical theme. Directed by Freddie Francis, the film stars horror icon Christopher Lee in one of his many portrayals of cinema's most celebrated vampire. This version features a lean, effective screenplay by John Elder.
The film opens in a small, pre-industrial village that had previously been terrorized by Dracula, who is presumed to have been destroyed. As the title of the film indicates, however, Dracula soon rises from his grave to begin a new campaign of bloodsucking villainy. His foes in this film are a Catholic monsignor and the boyfriend of the monsignor's lovely niece.
Bernard's solid score is complemented by good art direction. Francis makes effective use of forest and rooftop settings as Dracula pursues his ends. Lee gets solid support from the rest of the cast. Barry Andrews makes a particularly appealing young hero as Paul, the boyfriend of the monsignor's niece. I also was impressed by Barbara Ewing's performance as Paul's sexy co-worker.
There is a pronounced sexual feel to vampirism in this film (as in the other Lee Dracula films I have seen), so there is a delicious irony to the fact that one of Dracula's key foes here is a Catholic monsignor, and thus presumably celibate. Also, a religous controversy among Dracula's foes makes for an interesting contrast to their battle against the undead villain. Overall, a well made and solidly entertaining film.

"Dracula Has Risen From The Grace" is one of the highwater marks of the Hammer Dracula series and features the wonderful Christopher Lee in his third outing as the world's most famous vampire, the blood sucking Count Dracula. Made while the Dracula cycle of films were still fresh this film is one of the best that Christopher Lee did in the role and is a vast improvement over the previous effort "Dracula Prince Of Darkness". The main yardstick for measuring this improvement is that sparse as his screen time is again, Lee has dialogue in this entry which adds tremendously to the overall impact of Dracula's sinister presence.
Ably directed by veteran Hammer man Freddie Francis the film opens a period of time after the conclusion of the earlier film where a small village experiences a horrible death in the bell tower of the local church. The terrified townspeople still living in fear from the shadows cast by Dracula's abandoned castle prompt a visiting Monseignor to travel up to Castle Dracula with the cowardly local priest to ensure that the vampire curse is removed once and for all by placing a holy cross over the main entrance door. Unknowingly the priest awakens Dracula with some of his own blood and soon the world's most famous vampire is alive and seeking revenge on the Monseigner and his family, in particular his pretty neice who becomes the object of his attentions.
Apart from the superb "Horror Of Dracula" that immortalised Christopher Lee in the role of Dracula this is the finest entry in the series. Extremely atmospheric with a clever use of day/night photography, great period detail, eerie forest and cemetery scenes and hazy rooftop shots the film is a superb period horror tale.

What an awsome opening credit sequence in this film. The solarizing film effects together with the music make for a colorful and forboding psychedelic experience (no cheating here with CGI..this is real). The topics covered in this film reach much farther than the usual Hammer Dracula. The movie is like a morality play in many respects. The film is thought provoking and the imagery is very rich and beautiful. Christopher lee looks better than ever. Rupert Davies is such a natural actor, to bad we did not see much more of him in other Hammer films.
I still don't understand what is so exceptional with "Horror of Dracula" or "Dracula Prince of Darkness"? Maybe it is just name brand awarness gone amuck for some reviewers? I do prefer "Prince of Darkness" over "Horror of Dracula" but "Risen From the Grave" has it all for my money.

This film is a must! The picture is perfect, the acting first rate, the music truly haunting.
**** Hollywood directors/producers take note, if the Hammer production company could make a film like this for $150.000 in 1968 why can't you folks with your infinite wisdom make a decent film with today's 50 million dollar plus budgets?????
