Not a great film at all. It is interesting to have the count in the 20th century, but he does not belong in it. He needs to stay back in the 1800's, as Stoker meant him to be.
This film is also confusing in many ways. If it is indeed a sequel to "Horror Of Dracula", then how did the count come to be? In "Scars Of Dracula", he caught fire and fell to his death, leaving nothing of himself (presumably). And, being Professor Van Helsing was not in any of the period sequels, how did they fit this story in about he and Dracula fighting one another to the death in 1872? Did this happen in one of the films when we weren't looking? Very unlikely.
At least Peter Cushing returns (finally) as a descendent of Professor Van Helsing. Too bad he could not have been in the four previous films.
As I said, this one is not worth watching, unless you're bored. And if you're bored, this film will add to it.

Hammer brought Cushing (11 year absence since Brides) and Lee in yet another Dracula film, and broke the taboo keeping them in the past, and moved them into present day (well, it was then...lol) England. It starts - set in past - with a wild galloping fight between Cushing and Lee atop a runaway carrage, ending with Lee getting a stake through the heart from a broke carriage wheel spoke.
Cut to the very modern and hip swinging 70s. Very mod and bored rock and rollers summon Dracula and he is off at a merry clip, showing it is too hard to teach an old dog new tricks! He discovers there is a look alike Van Helsing descendant around, and goes after his granddaughter (Stephanie Beacham).
Lee was still very imposing at the bloodsucker in the black cape, but it was just jarring to see Drac in swinging 70s! Caroline Munro and Beacham pretty up the screen well, and Cushing and Lee still have their old magic, but it's indifferently directed by Alan Gibson and written weakly by Don Houghton.
Sigh...Hammer is showing signs of wear here sadly. I give it four stars instead of three for the terrific work by Cushing and Lee. When they are on screen is super. Rest of the film is thin.
For Dracula fans or admirers of Lee and Cushing. Everyone else will be bored stiff. One can begin to understand Lee's current apathy toward the role that made him famous.

Changes in directors, budgets, and vision at Hammer Studios had its effect. This is an odd entry in the Dracula series. It blends familiar gothic elements with a "modern" setting. After a pulse-pounding prologue, showing the Victorian-era Dracula impaled on a broken carriage wheel, the action fast-forwards 100 years to 1972. Bored with sex, drugs, and rock n' roll, a motley crew of aging British hippies resurrect Dracula in a de-sanctified church. Dracula decides to settle old debts by taking Van Helsing's granddaughter as his bloody bride. This is a fine opportunity to see legendary Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee perpetuate their long running battle of good vs. evil. Mist-shrouded scenes of Dracula in the ruins of the profaned church are visually effective. Lee's towering, menacing presence in the flowing black cape adds to the fun. His feral lust for the blood of young women is frankly sexual. Instead of typical Hammer heaving bosoms in Victorian bodices, we have substantial cleavage in '70s gauche courtesy of Stephanie Beacham, Caroline Munro, et al. Sex and the vampire are never far apart, regardless of the era. The penetration is of the fangs in the neck variety, but we get the idea. Peter Cushing looks emaciated and gaunt. As Van Helsing, he uses superior cunning to foil Dracula's supernatural power. Their climactic confrontation recalls the showdown from "Horror of Dracula." Some groaning humor lightens the mood. Johnny Alucard is Dracula's mod disciple. His name spelled backwards is significant. A street scene focuses briefly on a restaurant called "London Steak House." The film falls short of classic Hammer standards. Even so, Hammer Horror Heads and classic horror collectors will be pleased with this flick. ;-)

"Dracula A.D. 1972," starring Christopher Lee as the titular vampire, is one bizarre film. It starts with a prologue set in the 1800s: Lee's Dracula is shown in battle with his nemesis Van Helsing (Peter Cushing). As the title indicates, the main body of the film brings Dracula into the 1970s, where he battles Van Helsing's descendant (also played by Cushing). Also along for the horror is a young Stephanie Beacham as the second Van Helsing's lovely granddaughter.
The film tries to blend traditional vampiric horror with 70s style youth culture: thus the elements of sex (discretely), drugs, and rock 'n' roll permeate the film. To early 21st century viewers, the swingin' music, outrageous mod clothes, hairdos, and wannabe hip slang ("Weird, man. Way out") of the young cast may come off as more campy than anything else, but it does make the film fun.
Lee is compelling as Dracula: articulate and elegant, yet feral. Unfortunately, his screen time is sparse; his amounts to little more than a small supporting role. The real star of the film is Cushing as the 20th century Van Helsing. The classy Cushing projects real intelligence and ability as his character. He brings total conviction to every scene, and has solid chemistry with Beacham (although I think his hands come a little too close to her bosom in a couple of scenes--watch it, "Grandpa"!). "Dracula A.D. 1972" may be far from the best of the many Dracula films, but Cushing and Lee make it worthwhile.
