Audience Reviews for The Brides of Dracula

  • Oct 31, 2017
    Peter Cushing's second outing in a Hammer Dracula film as Van Helsing, the main protagonist and vampire hunter. Terence Fisher's The Brides of Dracula features a romantic and lustful subplot amidst vampires rising from the grave and alot of screaming - a standard affair for a Dracula outing, making it a successful one too. The characters are interesting and charismatic enough to carry the film, asides from the slightly irritating main character of Marianne. The script may lack the enthusiasm of the predecessor's juicy subject material, however what the film lacks in real invention it makes up for in beautiful scenery and a Gothic atmosphere that will continue to attract Hammer fans for decades.

    A girls school in Transylvania becomes targeted by the son of you know who for you know what. Hammer Studios was churning these period pieces out like my grammar school math teacher assigned homework and, while there's certainly a just-one-more feel to the proceedings, quality does indeed show. In typical style, a lurid fantasy creepily told. Who builds a girls school in Translyvania anyway? Still better than the gore pieces done today.

    Although directed with flair by Fisher and starring the reliable Cushing this is a poor sequel to Hammer's 'Horror of Dracula' and is also a bit of a cheat as it doesn't actually feature Dracula. Instead we have Peel as Baron Meinster, a villain so pathetic he has been chained in his room for the last few years by his mother! Although Cushing is solid his Van Helsing is a dull character next to his more recent Frankenstein and Holmes roles with Hammer and he has little to do until a bizarre burning ritual at the end. Some of the acting in the film, especially from the leading actress, is poor and Peel doesn't have the charisma to convince as Meinster. Thankfully their is some excellent support from Freda Jackson, Martita Hunt and Miles Malleson who bring their A-game to a weak entry in the Hammer series.

    Peter Cushing is awesome as ever, but I was disappointed that Christopher Lee wasn't the vampire this time. The story is good, but the other actors, especially the lead girl, weren't. Overall, it's a pretty good movie, but it could have been better.
