Ingrid Pitt and Hammer Horror fans, like me, should be happy to have this in their collection and the picture quality is excellent. I bought this and The Vampire Lovers in the same order...the later shows more nude Ingrid but I'm glad I have both.

Hammer Films Take On The Blood Countess May 13 2014
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Synapse Films has released Director Peter Sasdy's 'COUNTESS DRACULA'-1972 in the Blu-Ray format and boy, does it look good. Posing at the time as part of Hammer Films Vampire series, it emerges as a cheat in that department for there is nary a fang in sight as the film is an historical take on the life of Countess Elisabeth Bathory with supernatural elements. Hammer already did something similar back in 1966 with Director Don Sharp's 'RASPUTIN-THE MAD MONK' . It also boasts the best performance by actress Ingrid Pitt transforming back and forth in aging makeup and a final performance by the great Nigel Green who passed away after the release of the film. You will also see a young Leslie Anne Down included in the proceedings. Director Sasdy handles the historical antics with fervor coming off the excellent 'TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA' -1971 utilizing cinematographer Ken Talbot's images and hypnotic music score by Harry Robinson to great advantages. MGM's Midnight Madness series had released this film on DVD in a double sided disc with Director Roy Ward Baker's 'THE VAMPIRE LOVERS'-1970 back in 2005 but the negative was a bit on the dark side. Synapse has restored it in a gorgeous 1.66 -1080P transfer restoring the cuts made by 20th Century Fox for the US release to secure a PG rating which butchered it's co-feature 'VAMPIRE CIRCUS' even more. This release is also packed with extras including an Audio Commentary by actress Pitt, Director Sasdy and screenwriter Alexander Paal, a featurette on Pitt's career 'IMMORTAL COUNTESS' , an archival audio interview with Pitt, a lavish still gallery and an original British trailer. If you didn't get the MGM DVD, you won't go wrong with the DVD included here which also looks excellent. Synapse deserves kudos for this release for its the best the film has looked since projected all those years ago. It also immortalizes Ingrid Pitt who only lensed a few titles in her career but has had an incredible fan base over the years. It's a shame she did not get to see this excellent transfer. It is not one of Hammer's best but it shows what the studio could do when it ventured away from the Horror genre. Highly recommended.

LOVE, LOVE THIS MOVIE!! May 11 2014
By Egyptian Gurl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
It is now 3am in the morning and I am on my fifth (if not more) viewing of this movie! The Hammer movies never fail to entertain and keep you glued to the screen. In fact, I've never seen a bad Hammer film. Why don't we have movie houses today who can make movies like this?

Ingrid Pitt shines in this movie, as she transforms from a frumpy old countess into a beautiful young, voluptuous woman with the help of virgins' blood! Quite eery, but so well done in this film. Unfortunately, Ingrid is not with us today, but her talents are so visible in this well-written, well-directed film. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this movie to lovers of vampire movies, or for those who wish to watch a well-written, well-acted horror movie. This one WON'T DISAPPOINT!!

Hammer Horror done right! May 27 2014
By Matthew Scott Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a big fan of Hammer Horror, and my fandom grows exponentially with each new title I watch. I have to confess I’ve only seen a handful of Hammer films, however I’ve seen enough to know I love them. And thanks to Synapse Films, fans like me can enjoy these timeless classics with digitally remastered sound and picture. Their latest release, COUNTESS DRACULA, stars the lovely Ingrid Pitt and embodies everything Hammer Horror is renowned for.

Director Peter Sasdy directed a couple of other Hammer films, including TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA and HANDS OF THE RIPPER, as well as three episodes of the short-lived HAMMER HOUSE OF MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE television series. As such, he was the perfect choice to bring this concept to the big screen.

COUNTESS DRACULA is shot well and has the same foreboding feel that made Hammer films so popular. The acting is first rate with the afore mentioned Ingrid Pitt portraying the titular character. She is accompanied onscreen by Sandor Eles, who portrays Lt. Toth, and Nigel Green as Captain Dobi. Pitt steals the show, however, giving a magnificent performance as both a young woman and an old crone.

There’s not much gore or even blood in the film, which really surprises me given the premise. However, the lack thereof is just fine; the intensity that is built up within the film doesn’t need gore or blood to heighten it. That’s not to say it wouldn’t have been enjoyable to see…but with Hammer, the darkness comes from within the characters, not from splattering the walls with carnage.

I have not seen a previous copy of COUNTESS DRACULA, so I cannot say how much the picture and/or sound have improved…but watching this film on Blu-ray is an excellent experience. The picture is very clear, with no noticeable grainy images or blurred shots. Likewise, the sound is exquisite, especially the ambient sounds that come through the surround-sound. If you have the chance, do yourself a favor and watch this on Blu-ray.

COUNTESS DRACULA is a huge win for me, and I suggest fans of Gothic horror give it a look. Even if you’re not a fan of Hammer films already, this is the perfect movie to get you started. It is available now.

Ingrid Pitt is back as Countess Dracula! Sept. 2 2014
By Leland D. Petty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
When one conjures up the name Ingrid Pitt, what comes to mind? Ahhh a female vampire, but not just an ordinary female vampire! She is by far the sexiest and best female vampire that ever graced the silver screen. I loved this movie and always will. Synapse has done a real good job on this edition. I think if Ingrid were alive to see it this way, she would have enjoyed it even more. The menu design is well done and the background music adds to the atmosphere. I used to own the midnight movies edition years ago, but I have to say this is an improvement over that for certain.
Not only do you get the movie, but you get these special features:

Countess Dracula Still Gallery with moving pictures and music

Immortal Countess: The Cinematic Life of Ingrid Pitt (although this is a nice bio featurette, it mainly focuses on her few major movie roles "The Vampire Lovers", "Countess Dracula", "The House That Dripped Blood", "Where Eagles Dare", "The Wicker Man" and talks about her very first appearance in the "Sound of Horror")

Archival Audio Interview with Ingrid Pitt, which is just wonderful.

Theatrical Trailer

The movie is DTS HD 2.0 original mono soundtrack or Audio Commentary with Actress Ingrid Pitt, Director Peter Sasdy, screenwriter Jeremy Paul, and author Jonathan Sothcott

The movie is perhaps Hammer at their best, but the turn about on blu-ray is not Aug. 18 2014
By Humberto Velazquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The movie is perhaps Hammer at their best, but the turn about on blu-ray is not. I was not very pleased with the quality of the blu-ray. I truly believe they could have done a better job. It seemed like a very well produced dvd copy and not what I am used to on blu-ray. There are others of Hammer film movies on blu-ray, and they have a excellent improvement in picture and sound. Countess Dracula as a import(Which I also have) was a better copy on dvd. Does this suggest that Foreign companies at better at improving the sound and picture on dvd, than Americans are with Blu-ray?
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the special features and hearing Ingrid Pitt's life story. It is still a pleasure having this movie especially because it is the first copy to be released on blu-ray but I hope in the future they will make a effort to improve on the picture and sound, and have the uncut version that was never released in theaters because I have seen it a long time ago when it was mistakenly released on Laser Disc and VHS, and I would love to have those versions too. I think getting this on blu-ray was worth it, but it can still use a little more improvement. Thank you and enjoy.
