Christopher Lee dons the evil Count's cloak once again after an 8-year hiatus for this first "authentic" sequel to Hammer Studios' Horror of Dracula (the literal 1960 follow-up Brides of Dracula did not feature Lee). The story begins when two stuffy vacationing couples make an ill-fated stopover at Castle Karlsbad in the Carpathian mountains -- despite the warnings of the mysterious Fr. Sandor (Andrew Keir) and the near-destruction of their coach when the terrified driver runs for his life.

Full of the sensual mysteriousness which Hammer used to achieve so effortlessly during their long occupation of Bray Studios.
It's an effective bit of Hammer horror, boasting the expected atmospherics, period trappings, literary conceits and, yes, buxom beauties.
Probably Hammer's last great Dracula film %u2014 a solid, sometimes imaginative effort.
The least effective Hammer horror film featuring Christopher Lee as the fly-by-night Count.
Another Hammer vampire flick. About average for the series.
