Rating: 3/10 -- An original direction to take a tremendously played-out franchise, but I think I'd have been happier with no eighth Dracula film at all, rather than this particular eighth Dracula film. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Despite being famous for the castles and gore, Hammer was often at its best when telling modern stories, dealing with different kinds of brutality. Here those elements are interwoven very effectively with the supernatural aspects of the tale. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The plotting is often downright silly, and the climax, with Dracula having to contend with a pesky thorn bush, is borderline risible. Full Review

For me, the Hammer Films are hit and miss. This one was definitely a _miss_.

Rating: 0/5 -- Even for a Chris Lee Dracula flick, this is bad

Description by

Hidden behind the doors of England's wealthiest manors are altars dedicated to the worship of Satan, the sites of hideous black mass rituals. These twisted scenes of torture and sacrifice are perpetrated by the country's most prominent citizens, seduced by the power of Count Dracula. The vampire has enlisted the aid of politicians, generals, and scientists to unleash a deadly plague on the earth. The legendary vampire hunter, Dr. Van Helsing, learns of the scheme just before the Sabbath of the Undead, the day chosen for human annihilation. With the aid of his granddaughter and two investigators, he pursues Dracula to his foul lair where they clash in a devastating battle that will decide the fate of the human race.

The Satanic Rites of Dracula, released in the U.K. as Count Dracula and his Vampire Bride, is the final film pairing Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Their portrayals of Dracula and Van Helsing in the Hammer series are definitive within the vampire genre, and The Satanic Rites of Dracula is an impressive finale for the saga. Contains nudity.

Product Description:

In this modern update of the Dracula saga, Count Dracula (Christopher Lee) leads a Satanic cult of prominent scientists and politicians into developing a gruesome plague virus. His only obstacle is his old nemesis Lorimar Van Helsing (Peter Cushing). The Count poses as an isolated billionaire, and holds hostage Van Helsing's granddaughter (Joanna Lumley). Though Van Helsing does not realize that his arch enemy is the same person responsible for the plague, but sets about trying to rescue his granddaughter. When he uncovers the truth behind the secret identity--will he stop the villain once and for all'

A Hammer Horror Classic! Movie Lover: from County Durham, England UK -- October, 9, 2004

This film was the last "Hammer Horror" to feature Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing together. The picture and sound are fine on this release and it's a great little romp, one for your Halloween shows! It's not the best Hammer Dracula, but at this price it is 'A Hammer Horror Classic'!

Really Bad Movie Lover: from Texasville -- August, 5, 2004

If you really want to see some nudity and are parentialy restricted on the internet then this might be a fine choice.

The film seems to concentrate on one bare chested female after another but ignores pretty much anything like a plot or a scary scene.
