Not only Hammer's first take on the Bram Stoker classic, but undoubtedly its finest.
October 13, 2020
Of all the Dracula horror pictures thus far produced, this one, made in Britain and photographed in Technicolor, tops them all. Its shock impact is, in fact, so great that it may well be considered as one of the best horror films ever made.

Altogether this is a horrific film, and sometimes a crude film. but by no means an unimpressive piece of melodramatic story-telling.

A film which the passage of the years has managed to put in its place as one of the best horror titles of all time. [Full Review in Spanish]

This Grand Guignol treatment bowled people over in the 50s, and it still yields some potent shocks.

Easily ranks in the pantheon of genre classics.

There will never be a greater vampire film than Nosferatu or Vampyr, not ever. But Hammer's Dracula puts up a strong fight to come in at third place.

It was for a long time regarded by horror fans as the finest horror film ever made.
November 2, 2007
A great British horror film with bite.

October 9, 2007
A film that deserves recognition as one of this country's finest horror movies, a sexually charged Gothic nightmare featuring standout performances from Hammer stalwarts Lee and Peter Cushing, who stars as vampire hunter Van Helsing.
