Not the best of the Dracula movies, but by the time this one was done, Dracula had run it's course

Another instalment of Hammers famous Dracula series. This time Dracula is posing as a mysterious owner of a company while his employees are actually trying to make the bubonic plague in another attempt by the Count to wipe out mankind. This has some decent ritual scenes, good performances and is also Hammers, and Christopher Lees final(?) performance as the Count. It might not be as Classy as earlier efforts but is still worth a watch.

Tmprovement over the previous Dracula film. It started production with the dreadful working title of Dracula is Dead and Well and Living in London, however Hammer saw common sense and changed the title to something more in keeping. Set a year or so after Dracula (Christopher Lee) stalked London, Scotland Yard's Inspector Murray (Michael Coles) is helping to investigate the death of secret agent Hanson (Maurice O'Connell), who had been taken prisoner at a country house, which is home to satanic rituals which are performed by Chin Yang (Barbara Yu Ling), and they involved members of the British Government. Murray calls upon the services of Lorrimer Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) and his granddaughter Jessica (Joanna Lumley), and the cult leads Van Helsing to the offices of D.D. Denham, who never goes out during the day, and hasn't been seen in public. It's a film which manages to be a horror film, a spy thriller and even a touch of sci-fi in there. It has more density and a better plot than the previous Hammer Dracula. It's a very silly film, but it's enough to hold your attention. Lee put his foot down with this one and said no more Dracula films ever, so Hammer ended the franchise, save of their Hong Kong horror The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974).

An absolute abysmal installation to the Dracula series... By the end you really just didn't care anymore! Hammer had dragged this franchise out way too long and a continuation of A.D. 1972 shouldn't have been attempted, that one barely made it past watch-able but Satanic Rites has been by far the most uninteresting movie of the entire franchise...

'The Satanic Rites of Dracula' may not be the most intelligent of Hammer films but it sure is as entertaining as hell.

You would think that Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and my beloved Joanna Lumley could save this stinker....but they couldn't.
One star out of respect for their presence here and a half star for the chessy 1970's vampire chicks chained in the basement.

This is the last Dracula movie for Hammer. That's not too bad, Dracula wants to destroy the world by a terrible chemical plague. The ending it's an epic fight between V.Helsing and Dracula. On the screen it will remain the ring of the Count, only. The end.
