Dracula Has Risen from the Grave

Dracula Has Risen from the Grave ★★★★

Hooptober Part VIII Film #8

Hammer horror shreds. Always can expect extravagant set pieces, gorgeous women, a struggle between ultimate darkness and the fading light, all bathed in vibrant colors and a haunting punchy score. Christopher Lee is less chatty than usual, but he needs no words to convey the foreboding presence of Dracula here. A few laugh out loud moments include the first corpse placement, Dracula’s high speed horse whipping, and a tumble down the stairs worthy of the 3 stooges. The pacing isn’t light speed, but I really enjoyed hanging out in the gothic ambiance. A+ final shot into the credits.
