In this sequel to ’Dracula’ (1958), 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), sinister manservant of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee)...

Christopher Lees return the dark cloaked role after a seven year absence created a sizable hit that breathed new death into the Hammer Dracula cycle. With fewer lines than a cameo player, Lee still exudes the necessary menace, and the presence of Andrew Keir raises Dracula: Prince of Darkness to the status of a minor Hammer classic.

A welcome initiative from Studio Canal is a joint restoration project with Hammer Films to restore and release on DVD (and as Blu-ray premiers) several key horror titles from the company's illustrious past. The first entry is a double-play Dracula Price of Darkness, with the definitive Count, Christopher Lee (albeit dialogue-less), ably supported by Barbara Shelley. The fully restored film is accompanied by an impressive extras package (produced in association with Hammer expert and author Marcus Hearn). Four English tourists, stranded in the isolated village of Karlsbad, find themselves at an abandoned castle where a grim fate awaits. Splendid fare, looking more impressive than it ever has in any previous incarnation.
