Freddie Francis creates some admirable atmosphere and tension in the first half-hour, but ultimately reduces the film to an inconsequential splurge of arbitrary religious and sexual motifs.
Christopher Lee's death-by-crucifix ending stands as one of the most iconic gothic images ever recorded in cinematic vampire lore.
The film props itself up mostly on [director] Francis's often-thrilling visual sense, and the visceral impact of the first and final scenes.
... former cinematographer Freddie Francis does a spectacular job in the director's chair, milking every scene for maximum visual impact ...
It's still a very solid Hammer Dracula film, but the slow, downward spiral away from quality would continue with the next entry in the series ...
It's more camp than anything else; it's destined to provide more laughs at parties than thrills alone.
Another Hammer/Christopher Lee horror goodie.
It has a nice look, but it's nothing new.
