Film Description

Seven years after their original Dracula, Hammer finally persuaded Christopher Lee to don the cape once more for Dracula: Prince of Darkness. The result was one of their greatest films, and arguably the closest to Stoker's subject - Dracula's threat to a society in which sexuality is totally repressed.

Four English tourists are holidaying in the Carpathians when they meet the unconventional Father Sandor (Andrew Keir) at an inn. He warns them to avoid the local castle if they value their lives, but the next day the quartet find themselves stranded in the mountains after their driver abandons them. When a driverless carriage arrives they board it, intending to travel to the nearest village. However, the carriage instead takes them to the very castle which Sandor warned them against, where they are welcomed by Klove (Philip Latham), the sinister manservant of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee)...
