About the film:

Every night for 600 years he rises from his coffin-bed to seek the warm blood he needs to keep himself alive! Investigating the death of his friend Jonathan Harker—apparently the victim of a bloosucking vampire—Doctor Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) discovers a diary incriminating Count Dracula (Christopher Lee). But even as Van Helsing realizes the horrifying truth, Dracula stalks Harker’s fiancée, Lucy (Carol Nash), trapping her tortured soul in the terrifying force of his hypnotic power—and only Van Helsing may be strong enough to save her by exorcizing the Horror of Dracula.

About the filmmaker:

Terrence Fisher was a British director best known for revolutionizing the horror genre through his reimagining of classic Universal monster films by focusing on realistic relationships between characters in his films, complex characterization, and dynamic themes. His work on many of Hammer Studios’ most popular horror films—such as The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Horror of Dracula (1996)—has been widely praised.
