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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Dracula Prince of Darkness was great as expected. It was a little slow and takes time before Christopher Lee appears. I thought this movie would suffer from the absence of Peter Cushing. Andrew Keir stepped in and filled the shoes nicely as Father Sandor. Barbara Shelley was great. I liked Suzan Farmer's performance as well. For me Farmer and Keir were tied for best performance second to Lee. The movie was very suspenseful. It had an awesome ending.Read more ›

It's okay, but not jump up and down great. It's hammer, it has Peter Cushing and Christoper Lee. But these are not Hammer's best horror movies. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Bruce Yarbor

The movies come with Prince of Darkness on a single sided disc and 7 Golden Vampires and Frankenstein Created Woman on a flipper disc. I despise flipper discs. Oh, well. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Alan C. Logan
