The third in the landmark series, following HORROR OF DRACULA and BRIDES OF DRACULA, DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS features Christopher Lee’s much anticipated return to the role after many years of refusing to ‘resume the cape’, and as such is widely regarded as the true sequel to the original. It also features Hammer fan favourites Barbara Shelley (Village of The Damned, Quatermass and The Pit) and Andrew Keir (Quatermass and The Pit). Opening with a spectacular pre-titles sequence from HORROR OF DRACULA showing the climactic slaying of the count, the story begins ten years later with a group of unwary English travellers – Charles Kent (Francis Matthews, The Revenge of Frankenstein), his brother Alan (Charles Tingwell) and their wives Diana (Suzan farmer, Rasputin The Mad Monk) and Helen (Barbara Shelley) – journeying through the Carpathian woods. Foolishly ignoring the wise advice of gun-toting abbot, Father Sandor (Andrew Keir), the Kent’s spend a night at the infamous castle at Karlsbad, where a mysterious retainer named Klove (Phillip Latham) tends to their every need. Later that night Klove slaughters one guest in a bloodthirsty ritual to resurrect his vampire lord to feast on the living once more.
