Peter Cushing stars as Doctor Van Helsing and Christopher Lee as Count Dracula in this towering achievement of gothic horror that solidified the Hammer Studios aesthetic, while rehabilitating classic horror characters that had grown stale after the fading of the Universal Pictures monster franchises. “This was Dracula like audiences had never seen before and it changed the face of horror cinema forever.”—Andrew Smith, Daily Dead
