Skipping the Hammer sequels Warners don't have the rights to - the Christopher Lee-free Brides of Dracula, Dracula Prince of Darkness, Scars of Dracula and The Satanic Rites of Dracula - this is nonetheless an excellent collection of some of the best in the series.

Hammer's groundbreaking 1958 version of Dracula (aka Horror of Dracula) is still one of the very best despite the many liberties Jimmy Sangster's concise and highly effective script takes with Bram Stoker's novel to whittle it down to an hour-and-a-half. It's not just the names that have been changed around and the cast of characters greatly reduced to Hammer's budget levels (admirably disguised here by Bernard Robinson's excellent production design). John Van Eyssen's Jonathan Harker is no longer a lawyer, but here is posing as a librarian to get into Dracula's castle with an ulterior motive - presumably on the grounds that the audience knows going in just what Dracula is so there's no point putting the hero through all that mystery when there's staking to be done. The budget doesn't stretch to the voyage and arrival of the ghost ship Demeter or even a Renfield for that matter, and this Dracula has no social interaction with his intended victims in Whitby or London - in fact, he never even leaves the continent. Nor is the vampire fascinated with Harker's intended - here he simply seeks her out as revenge. Yet the changes work surprisingly well, and even throws in a few good twists like the location of Dracula's hiding place.

NO movie company EVER gave a more scenic, rustic,*GOTHIC* ambience than HAMMER STUDIOS!. AND!, as lasting and classic as Lugosi was, Christopher Lee was the PERFECT Dracula!. Hammer began it all with "HORROR OF DRACULA" in 1958, and it was gory for that time!... Several years passed, and the first sequal was 'DRACULA PRINCE Of DARKNESS {My Favorite,and I NEVER understood why this wasn't on this set instead of A.D 72???}.So outstanding was this 2nd installment, that HAMMER,themselves,realized they had something special!. Only to follow were;'DRACULA HAS RISEN'...,'TASTE THE BLOOD'...,and 'SCARS OF DRACULA{highly UNDERATED!}. Finally;Satanic Rites, and A.D.'72. ... But HAMMER did it right!; Little nuances :>{Lamps on carriages, English Countryside, candles,Castles}!!!.
It is a horror fans dream to have such timeless movies to go along with outstanding scripts!,and just 'atmospheric' scenery alone boggles!... HAMMER horror is MORE than enough to quench the pallet!; THUS!; to top it all off ! ; *Christopher Lee* IS at his...The VERY BEST !!!!
BUY IT!

You can't beat the price here on Amazon for this 4-movie set of Dracula movies, i.e. Horror of Dracula, Dracula Has Risen From the Grave, Taste the Blood of Dracula, and Dracula A.D. 1972. The one thing I did wonder is why they didn't include the second Dracula instalment, i.e. Dracula Prince of Darkness [which by the way is being sold by third parties here on Amazon for exorbitant amounts].

Horror of Dracula
"Horror of Dracula" may not be a faithful adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic Gothic vampire tale, in fact far from it, but it is a fine take of Stoker's novel.In this version, Jonathan Harker goes to Dracula's castle at the beginning under the guise of a librarian, but he actually knows what Dracula is and his purpose is to destroy him. Unfortunately, he is killed by Dracula and the vampire goes to London to prey upon Harker's fiancee, Lucy Holmwood [yes, they changed the names too], and later on Mina Holmwood, Lucy's sister-in-law. It is left to Van Helsing [Peter Cushing] and Arthur Holmwood [Lucy's brother and Mina's husband] to destroy the monster.

Christopher Lee, in his first portrayal of the evil Count Dracula, may not have much screen time, but he makes the most of the limited time he does have. His Count is sensual and evil at the same time - exerting a hypnotic effect upon his female victims that have them eagerly disrobing for the count's pleasure [and fangs:)].

Peter Cushing does an amazing job as Dr Van Helsing, vampire hunter and his commanding presence and determination to hunt down and destroy the monster that is Dracula is so credibly done that I was cheering him on all through the movie.

The "Four Film Favorites" Series is a great way to purchase four related films at a nice, very affordable, price. This set, featuring four of the "Dracula" films from Hammer Studios starring Christopher Lee, is a perfect purchase for Halloween:

1. "Horror Of Dracula" (1958): The one that started the Hammer/Dracula series is the best of the four films collected here. Christopher Lee debuts as Dracula; and Peter Cushing also debuts as Dracula's arch-nemesis Van Helsing. "Horror" was the first time that Bram Stoker's original novel was filmed in color. It hardly matters that Jimmy Sangster's screenplay is a rather loose adaptation of Stoker's novel. The film moves along at an exciting pace, and packs a lot of incidents and action into 81 minutes. This version, for instance, wastes no time with meek Jonathan Harker "discovering" that Count Dracula is a vampire. Harker (John Van Eyssen) knows all about Dracula at the outset, and, posing as a librarian, arrives at Castle Dracula to destroy him. After he kills Dracula's vampire bride (Valerie Gaunt), Harker is turned into a vampire; presumably by Dracula himself. "Horror" is notable for its restraint. A lot of what happens is left to the viewer's imagination. With Harker a member of the "undead", it is up to Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) to save both Lucy (Carol Marsh) and Mina (Melissa Stribling) from a similar fate. The final showdown, with Dracula disintegrating after being exposed to direct sunlight, is especially memorable.
2. "Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" (1968): He certainly has, and he has vowed revenge on the Monsignoir (Rupert Davis who placed a very large cross in front of his Castle!
