Director: Terence Fisher
It's my b-day tomorrow, and for my b-day, Dug and K sent me a couple of Hammer blurays I'd not picked up, and... I'm very excited. Lots of extra features and whatnot and excellent picture quality.
I wrote this one up in late 2020, so I'm not inclined to say a ton more. I suppose this time it really struck me how much this movie seems to play with the idea of gothic romance novels, of the young woman entering a castle and uncovering a mystery - but in this case rather than a wrongly imprisoned prince or lord, she accidentally frees a Dracula. It's kind of clever.
This is also a movie where we see Van Helsing continue on his arc as a bad-ass, fist-fighting Draculas and applying his anti-vampirism plan to himself. It's crazy.
I will also continue to contend that Andree Melly was very cute as a vampire.
