Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make."
While not the best in Hammer's repertoire, Dracula: Prince of Darkness is perhaps the perfect Hammer Horror film, which signaled Lee's return to his most iconic role, had some terrific performances, and lived and died by some excellent direction. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Once Dracula is up and about, the script can't find much for him to do, but there are spirited performances from Shelley, as an uptight bourgeois who becomes a sensual vampire hoyden, and Kier, as a gun-toting monk who fills in for Van Helsing. Full Review
Apart from one or two welcome innovations -- notably the sort of Instant Vampire recipe by which Dracula is resuscitated, and his final destruction by drowning rather than by the usual procedures -- this is the same old hash as before. Full Review
Monthly Film Bulletin
Probably Hammer's last great Dracula film %u2014 a solid, sometimes imaginative effort. Full Review
Lee's red-eyed stare is suitably baleful and the fangs slightly more convincing than in the original. Full Review
This is a mean, violent picture. Full Review
Alexander On Film
Rating: B- -- Average made Hammer horror pic about Dracula's resurrection. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Travellers visit Carlstad, ignoring many warnings, and end up spending the night at a local castle. They soon find out that the gracious host, Klove, has a hidden agenda. Apparently the owner, Count Dracula, passed on ten years before, but has been waiting for an opportunity such as this to return to the world.
