While not the best in Hammer's repertoire, Dracula: Prince of Darkness is perhaps the perfect Hammer Horror film, which signaled Lee's return to his most iconic role, had some terrific performances, and lived and died by some excellent direction.

It's an effective bit of Hammer horror, boasting the expected atmospherics, period trappings, literary conceits and, yes, buxom beauties.

This is a mean, violent picture.

Apart from one or two welcome innovations -- notably the sort of Instant Vampire recipe by which Dracula is resuscitated, and his final destruction by drowning rather than by the usual procedures -- this is the same old hash as before.

Once Dracula is up and about, the script can't find much for him to do, but there are spirited performances from Shelley, as an uptight bourgeois who becomes a sensual vampire hoyden, and Kier, as a gun-toting monk who fills in for Van Helsing.
