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

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?????)

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.

My least favorite of the "Period Vampire" movies from Hammer Films.

It's the one that Christopher Lee is really talking about when he would complain that Hammer would just come up with a story and then just stick Dracula in it -- Well, that is exactly what happened in this one.

This film is also released as part of a 4 film Blu-ray set from Warner Brothers
(including "The Mummy" from 1959 with Peter Cushing & Christopher Lee
& "Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed,"
& "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave" --
I consider those 3 films as "must have" classics!)
Despite the (erroneous) ordering in the 4 disc box set,
make sure that you watch "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave" first,
as "Taste the Blood of Dracula" is a sequel that takes up right from the
ending of "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave."

While I might recommend this single-disc Blu-ray if Warner had added any Extra features or historical commentaries from respected horror historians, I will say that
"Taste the Blood of Dracula" does look good in HD, and this is the way to see it if you are interested.

So, despite any complaints, I say come on with more for me Warner Brothers.

Restore "The Curse of Frankenstein" and bring it back to the way we remember from 1957.
Take out that blue-color shift from the United Kingdom release of "Horror of Dracula,"
and give us HD restorations of all the Hammer Films in your domain.

“Taste the Blood of Dracula” LOOKS GREAT.And “Frankenstein must be destroyed” LOOKS PICTURE PERFECT. “Dracula has risen from the grave” LOOKS FANTASTIC. “The MUMMY” LOOKS BETTER and brighter then the UK blu ray. BY THE WAY,I have DIRECTV and on demand movies and they had DRACULA A.D.1972 in 1080 HD for 1.99 three day rental . I had to see the look of it. it's a new remastered print . clear AMAZING just amazing. sound and picture. 50X BETTER THEN THE DVD. ready for blu ray . they also had HORROR OF DRACULA and CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN in 1080 hd. they are all the next batch to come out on blu ray. on the old AD 72 dvd the music title theme song is warp and the color shiffs on caroline bitten scene [ NOT on this new fixed perfect print ] WARNER IF YOU WERE SMART release the last 3 quickly on blu ray while the sales of vol. 0ne is hot .now you know how warner works, we don't want the rest of the warner hammer titles fall threw the cracks. you have to keep on them and get the rest of the Hammer titles out on blu ray FAST. jurassic world just came out on blu ray . warner should of cashed in and release on blu ray WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH PG / G two option versions on one blu ray disc.
here is the cover artwork I made and you can post it on your website. to make us HAMMER FANS get the ball rolling again. warner is not for the HAMMER FILMS FANS
