The version I bought has an "R" rating, although I do not see the difference from the old "PG" videos. Yes, there are a couple of scenes added back like when one person is staked to death and has blood on his face. They also show women barebreasted for a moment, but other than that, what was so "R" about it?
A good sequel, and of course, it leaves the door open for another one.
it's release in an unbutchered state.the image is flawless , the sound is good if not expansive but the real treat is that the 4 minutes missing from every print released so far has this time been included.The bordelo scene is now free of the savage editing done by warner in the early 70's to be able to market it to the kiddies.The other additions are very short scenes juged to violent at the time.The result is a film that flows better & has a stronger story & that's it rates a 5 on my scale.
review of the DVD edition
This movie was made a year after Dracula Has Risen From The Grave and the next in the series was The Scars of Dracula.
Another interesting note is that Ralph Bates became Hammer's next leading man.
The sharp, vivid picture quality makes this an outstanding release in the Hammer series from Warner. Although it comes only with the original theatrical trailer as an extra, it's clear that great care was taken to present the film in its original widescreen format and to transfer the film as free of blemishes as is possible.
The mono sound also is of note. While it lacks the dynamic range of more recent films, the crisp and clear sound quality marks this as an outstanding reissue in the Hammer film series. The packaging reproduces the original poster art for the film for the US release (at least on the cover)as far as I can recall.
A nice package that lacks the usual frills, this will be a welcome addition to most fan's collections.
The film, directed by Peter Sasdy, who also did Countess Dracula (1970), starts off by basically rehashing the final scenes of Dracula has Risen from the Grave, and we find a portly merchant finding the remains of Dracula's corpse, his cloak, signet ring, cloak clasp, and red powder that is supposed to be Dracula's blood. We then meet of a group of three wealthy, respectable, older men who form a small group that participates in a little hanky panky on the side, and have become bored with their usual routine. They seek out the assistance of a younger man, one with noble lineage who was cut off from his family due to his predilections for the occult. This younger man convinces the trio to cough up the dough for the remains of Dracula, in the hopes of performing some sort of ritual, with the notion of bringing forth pleasures and such none of the men could ever conceive.
The ritual, which takes place in an abandoned church well off the beaten path, begins, and involves mixing fresh blood with the powdered blood of Dracula (which creates quite the oozing visceral cocktail), and then drinking this new combination. The three older men understandably balk at the idea of drinking this noxious concoction, and challenge the brash younger man to drink it, to which he calls them cowards and does, with interesting effects.Read more ›
