Great movie poster of Christopher Lee's Dracula. The hammer horror film has the Count avenging himself on the Harker fiancée and friends. Nice costumes and eerie music. Not gory, no sex, enjoyable horror for hammer fans, and older children.

Yes. When compared to the blood-saturated vampire films of today - This "Dracula" picture from 1958 is really quite tame and almost laughable at times.

But, all the same - "Horror Of Dracula" does contain some genuine moments of terror that should satisfy most fans of vintage horror films. Just don't set your hopes too high by expecting a literal gore-fest here.

Considered quite brutal and excessively graphic in its day (1958) - "Horror of Dracula" (a Hammer Production) was really surprisingly tame by today's gore-infested standards of over-the-top, blood-saturated vampire movies.

But - All the same - This particular horror film of glorified blood-lust is notable for being one of the very first vampire films to initiate the whole ultra-violent, blood-thirst trend that has continued (at full-throttle) to this very day.

I think that it's interesting to note that this particular film-version of Bram Stoker's famed vampire story has Count Dracula's castle situated just outside the paranoid, little village of Klausenberg (not the expected, Transylvania).

Anyway - Though this film did have its horrific moments - (Stake through the heart, anyone?) - It really wasn't anywhere near to being as sinister and savage as I was expecting it to be.

"The Horror of Dracula", 1958, pairs the established star Peter Cushing with the up and coming star Christopher Lee. These two would dominate British and American horror films from this point on. They have no rivals. The color and pageantry of this film is unexceeded
